Are you a Disney fan, or just a huge fan of everything Wizard of Oz-related? Then you must buy the Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful Blu-ray Combo Pack! Seriously, not only do you get a fantastic movie, but you also get a ton of bonus features too!
Sam Raimi’s Oz The Great and Powerful is a fun, action-packed family film. With it’s stunning imagery and quirky characters, Oz tells quite a remarkable story. Interestingly, the movie pays many tributes, visually and in the spirit of the 1939 The Wizard of Oz. The plot follows the events that occurred twenty years prior – to the story related in The Wizard of Oz.
After a very cool Disney opening montage, the story begins on Kansas, in 1905. Oscar Diggs (Oz) works as a magician in a traveling circus. He baffles audiences with his acts of illusion and prestidigitation. A few of the characters that interact with Diggs have otherworldly counterparts in the Land of Oz.
A nasty cyclone brings Oscar to the fabled land, where he quickly learns that his presence fulfills a prophecy regarding a wizard who falls from the sky to deliver the land from the evil reign of the wicked witch.
Along his journey, Oz befriends Finley, a flying monkey as well as a little girl made of China.
Additionally the magician befriends Glinda, the good witch who shares the truth of Oscars past and ultimately helps him to realize his true potential.
Oz The Great and Powerful more than delivers visual effects, a well acted script and amazing audio. I am a big fan of The Wizard of Oz and was so excited – and nervous – about seeing Oz The Great and Powerful because I was afraid it wouldn’t live up to my expectations.
IT TOTALLY DID! Chris didn’t really pay attention while we were watching but Angeline loved it too. While I don’t think that really small children will be able to follow along very easily, it’s otherwise a movie that your whole family can enjoy!
Oz The Great and Powerful came out on Blu-ray and DVD yesterday, June 11th, and makes the perfect afternoon movie for your family this summer vacation!
