Sam Raimi’s Oz The Great and Powerful is finally being released next spring after much anticipation. This past summer, a teaser trailer along with the first official poster was released providing a glimpse into the recreation of the world that fired up imaginations 73 years ago. Information about the film has been very limited and not much has been revealed since the launch of the teaser trailer until most recently. The second official poster for Oz The Great and Powerful has been released online revealing the wicked witch.
Although word hasn’t slipped as to who is portraying the wicked witch in the film, but it’s been rumored that it’s either Mila Kunis or Rachel Weisz. If you look very closely at the facial features on the new poster, it appears that the character is going to be portrayed by Mila Kunis.
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.
Oz The Great and Powerful starring James Franco, Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Zach Braff, and Abigail Spencer is set to arrive in theaters on March 8th, 2013.
