Oz: The Great and Powerful

A revamped view on the classic 1939 movie, Oz: The Great and Powerful stars James Franco as Oscar Diggs, a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics who is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz where 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.

Coming to theaters next year!

I love the Wizard of OZ and look forward to seeing this movie. I'm not always a fan of remakes, but this sounds very interesting with a look at what happened before the twister delivers Dorthey to OZ. Thanks for sharing!
