Oz: The Great and Powerful Super Bowl spot has arrived and it looks pretty cool! Get ready for the vibrant Land of Oz, ’cause (as you’re about to see from this video) it’s the land you know – the story you don’t, and Oz will amaze! But, is Oscar Diggs the only one strong enough to save us all? Apparently, he is!
Sam Raimi‘s fantastical adventure is inspired by L. Frank Baum‘s novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and is set before the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz. It centers on a small-time circus magician Oscar Diggs who is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz where he gets his second chance and transforms himself into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz!
Starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Zach Braff, Joey King and Bruce Campbell, Oz: The Great and Powerful is set to open 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.
So, what do you think about the Super Bowl spot and new motion poster?
