I tell you, 2013 is going to be a great year for movie-goers!
Oz, The Great and Powerful movie hits theaters in 2012!! This fantastical adventure is from Sam Raimi, the Producer of “Alice in Wonderland” and the Director of the “Spider-Man” Trilogy, so I have a pretty good feeling that it is going to be awesome!
Also? The cast includes some of my very favorite people: James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Zach Braff.
Yes, Zach Braff! It’s been so long since I’ve seen Zach Braff in something on the big screen!
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.
Oz The Great and Powerful is produced by Joe Roth and written by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire (credit not final). Grant Curtis, Philip Steuer and Palak Patel are serving as executive producers. “Oz The Great and Powerful” opens in U.S. theaters on March 8, 2013.
