{Friday Sneak Peak} Oz The Great and Powerful

Think you know Wizard of Oz? Did you grow up reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz? Ever ask your parents for a pair of ruby red slippers, and dream of no place like home?

I remember reading the book as a small girl and later fell in love with the 1939 film, that aired every year on television  My Grandma and I always made a big deal, and popped popcorn to watch the movie. One might say I was a huge fan! I could quote lines and tell you all about the characters.

But wait...what about the Wizard of Oz? What do we really know about the man behind the curtain? Do we know how he ended up in Oz? What do we know of the witches, and why they are good or wicked? I guess, I never really gave much thought to the man we think we know as Oz?!

I am so excited to share with you the clip that aired during the Big Game, last Sunday, and some first images from Oz the Great and Powerful! I am counting down the days till the big release on March 8th!



OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL

Release Date:  March 8, 2013

Cast:  James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, and Zach Braff

Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. 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 of Oz 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.
