New Character Posters for ‘Oz the Great and Powerful’ + Super Bowl Ad Sneak Peek
Are you as excited for Oz the Great and Powerful as we are?! We hope so!
Four new character posters have just been released featuring James Franco as Oz, Michelle Williams as Glinda, Mila Kunis as Theodora, and Rachel Weisz as Evanora.
A new TV spot for the movie will be shown this Sunday during the Super Bowl and you can get a sneak peek below. Be sure to check out the witch and all her power as she takes over the Disney.com homepage immediately following the commercial on game day.
The movie, directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great wizard but into a better man as well.
Oz the Great and Powerful opens March 8, 2013.
