‘Oz The Great and Powerful’ releases a teaser poster and movie synopsis!!!
Any movie with James Franco in it has to be good!
Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful has released a new teaser poster and also a synopsis that fills in the details of the alleged origins of L. Frank Baum’s classic. With the cast not only including Franco, but Milia Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams, this movie already looks like it will have some great potential. Check out the synopsis below.
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.
When small-time magician Oscar Diggs (James Franco) pulls one flimflam too many, he finds himself hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz where he must somehow transform himself into the great and powerful Wizard—and just maybe into a better man as well.
I won’t deny that I’m pretty curious to see what Sam Raimi does with this.
