You’ve probably seen the trailer in the theater for Disney’s, Oz The Great and Powerful, by now.  I saw the trailer at the last movie we went to and I sat in my seat thinking, “I really want to see this!”  Oz The Great and Powerful comes to movie theaters in Digital 3D on March 8th, 2013 and I think it’s gonna rock the box office!  But you don’t have to wait to see the trailer in movie theaters because it is now available to watch on iTunes.  You can also check out updates and new footage on Facebook and Twitter.


Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), 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 (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), 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 but into a better man as well.

When small-time magician Oscar Diggs (James Franco) pulls one flimflam too many, he finds himself hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz where he must somehow transform himself into the great and powerful wizard—and just maybe into a better man as well.

    The trailer makes it look a lot better than I expected. It looks like a truly evolved form of the original.
