Oz The Great and Powerful
Release Date—–>March 8, 2013
When I first heard about this movie, I was concerned that Disney was going to attempt a remake of the classic The Wizard of Oz. I mean, the thought of anyone remaking the beloved movie from my childhood….it just didn’t sit well with me. Then I learned that this movie is more about how Oz, became “great and powerful”. Whew! A sigh of relief 🙂 Now, I’m truly excited about the upcoming release of Oz The Great and Powerful.
About the movie
Disney’s fantastical adventure Oz The Great and Powerful, 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 and powerful wizard but into a better man as well.
Oz The Great and Powerful is produced by Joe Roth, with a screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire (credit not final). Grant Curtis, Palak Patel, Philip Steuer and Josh Donen are serving as executive producers.
