An awesome international (& let me add mysterious) character poster for the upcoming Oz: The Great and Powerful has arrived guys! Mysterious, because I have no idea who this lovely lady is. They say we’re dealing with the Wicked Witch in here, some say it’s Rachel Weisz but if you ask me – I still think this is Mila Kunis. Check out the rest of this report to see a larger image, and let me know what you think!
So, as you already know, this fantasy adventure film comes from director Sam Raimi, and is a prequel to both the novel and the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz.
It centers on James Franco‘s character Oscar Diggs, aka The Wizard of Oz, who is hurled away from Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, where he meets three witches…
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.
Beside Franco, Oz: The Great and Powerful also stars Mila Kunis as Theodora, Rachel Weisz as Evanora, Michelle Williams as Glinda, Zach Braff as Frank/Finley, Joey King as China Girl and Bruce Campbell as Gore, the Dark Wizard, & the movie is set to open on March 8th, 2013.
