With the movie’s release set for next week, the film has dropped its fourth trailer.
While only being about a minute long, the trailer does offer some new footage and gives a further glimpse into the world of Oz coming from Sam Raimi and Disney.
Oz the Great and Powerful stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, Zach Braff and Rachel Weisz and is set for nationwide release next Friday.
First Teaser Poster For Sam Raimi’s “Oz: The Great And Powerful”
Disney has just released this teaser poster for their upcoming prequel to The Wizard of Oz.
Directed by Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead, Spider-Man), the movie tells the tale of a circus magician (played by James Franco) who finds himself transported to the world of Oz where he stumbles upon battle between the three witches Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams).
The movie is set for a March 8th, 2013 release and Disney will be promoting the movie at the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con.
“EXCLUSIVE: Zach Braff is in final talks to join Disney’s Oz: The Great and Powerful, the Sam Raimi-directed film for Disney. Braff will play the role of Frank, the loyal but under-appreciated assistant to Oz (James Franco), a charismatic circus magician who is treated as a powerful wizard after his balloon blows off course into Oz and the townsfolk want him to eradicate a Wicked Witch and bring peace. Mila Kunis will play the witch Theodora, Michelle Williams will play Glinda and Rachel Weisz will play Evanora. The pic starts shooting in July in Michigan, with Joe Roth, Josh Donen and Grant Curtis producing and Palek Patel exec producing. Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire wrote the script, with Disney releasing the 3D film March 8, 2013.
Braff takes the role after writing his first play, All New People, which opens off-Broadway at the Second Stage Theatre with opening night July 25. Braff is also starring in the Tribeca Films feature High Cost of Living.”
This film project is really starting to garner some interest from me. Seeing as it is a prequel to The Wizard of OZ, and with there being no such thing as a good prequel, this film is a really hard thing to sell to someone like me. However, they got Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead trilogy, the Spider-Man trilogy) and a cast that includes James Franco and Mila Kunis for starters, and this looks like it’ll be a really good project. Well regardless, I’m probably going to check it out anyway, so let’s all hope for the best.
