Here we have the first teaser poster for the upcoming Sam Raimi Wizard of Oz prequel titled Oz The Great And Powerful. The film is starring James Franco as a magician who ends up in Oz, only to find himself stuck in a battle between three witches, played by Rachel Weisz, Mila Kunis and Michelle Williams.Disney plans on giving out some more info at Comic-Con, but until then, here’s the poster and plot synopsis.
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.
Expect to see Oz The Great And Powerful hitting theaters March 8, 2013.
