Ever wondered how the great wizard of Oz arrived and rose to power? Well wonder no more as Walt Disney Pictures has posted the first trailer for Oz: The Great and Powerful. In it, Oz, a small-time magician with dreams of grandeur, is whisked away to the wondrous land of fairies, munchkins and witches. Here he is taken under the wing of three witches and must decide who of them are Good and Wicked as he tries to free Oz from certain peril. The look and feel of the film is very much like Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” although I suspect director Sam Raimi will deliver his own distinct twist to the tale. Take a peek now and decide for yourself!
Oz: The Great and Powerful stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Zach Braff and Abigail Spencer.
Oz: The Great and Powerful rules US and UK theaters on March 8, 2013.

Conceptually I can get into it, but I’m a little put off by the resemblance of AiW.

I’m not the biggest fan of James Franco – aside from one good showing in 127 Hours, he’s not a convincing leading man.

The trailers for every upcoming flick will be coming fast and furious with ComicCon going on. Hopefully this will be the worst of them…

If done right, this could be a killer flick.

“Could” being the important word here. Done well or not, I’m inclined to think “won’t” is the better word to use.
