"Oz The Great and Powerful" 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.

Expect the movie March 8, 2013.

I am very excited for this film as well. I love the original books and the other OZ movie they made just sucked so I hope this one is good.

When I first heard about this film, I thought Franco might get an Oscar nod. After seeing that preview...I may have expected too much.

Rachel Weisz and Mila Kunis are both the evil witches

I hope the Oompa Loompas are in this one because I hated them in Tim Burton's Willy Wonka movie.
