Animated poster for Sam Raimi’s Oz the Great and Powerful
Walt Disney Pictures has released a new animated poster for Spider-Man director Sam Raimi’s Oz The Great and Powerful. Featuring the Wicked Witch it is slight variation on the static poster that was released before…but with added flying debris.
Based on the legendary Frank L. Baum novel The Wizard of Oz this new movie is a prequel of sorts with James Franco starring as a younger version of the titular wizard. Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, and Rachel Weisz star as the three witches.
Oz, The Great and Powerful is out in Irish cinemas on March 8th, 2013
When Oscar Diggs, 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, Evanora and Glinda, 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.
