There are some stunning visuals on display in this latest clip from Sam Raimi's Wizard Of Oz prequel, which sees Glinda The Good Witch (Michele Williams) lead Oz (James Franco), Finley and China Girl to The Emerald City, via bubble!..

"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.

Every time I see something on this movie I feel like I'm watching scenes from a Tim Burton movie. But then again when you look at the original Wizard of Oz you can see where Tim Burton has been inspired from the sets and colors.

Raimi is a great director. The SPIDER-MAN & EVIL DEAD trilogies were awesome, and DRAG ME TO HELL was pretty cool, but this just looks...meh.
