"The idea was floated that at some point we would see where the baboons that Evanora used to do here dirty work came from and so I did some passes on an ominous home for them. The two characters in the center were done very early on for Oz: The Great and Powerful when there were a host of other minor villains from L. Frank Baum's books that we were trying out. The "Steam Bot" at the bottom was an early idea that Sam Raimi really wanted to see, and popped in and out of the movie as we were working on it. In the end it was too expensive and maybe too much of a spectacle and so was let go."

Disney's fantastical adventure "Oz The Great and Powerful," directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. 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 and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.

Interesting note: The same production designer of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland provided the design for this film. That explains a lot.
