Walt Disney Studios has released this new poster art for the upcoming Oz The Great and Powerful, starring James Franco along with Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Zach Braff.
Directed by Sam Raimi, it’s the origin story for the man who became known as the Wizard of Oz. Franco plays Oscar Diggs, a circus magician who gets whisked away to the Land of Oz. Here he finds what he thinks is the jackpot, until he meets three witches – Theodora, Evanora and Glinda (Kunis, Weisz, and Williams) – who aren’t convinced he’s the all-powerful man he makes himself out to be.
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.
Oz the Great and Powerful is out March 8, 2013.
