Wonder what it’s really like to enter the imaginary land of Oz? Or how the wizard of Oz could have come to be? Disney presents you an original, breathtaking tale of the beginnings of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character in “OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL”.
When small-time magician Oscar Diggs 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.
Meet with a star cast that brings Oz’s story to life – you will join Oscar (James Franco) on an incredible journey as he enters the land of Oz, meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams) and befriends other unlikely characters such as Finley, the wise winged monkey, and the brave but brittle China Girl.
What excites me most in Disney’s “OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL”?
Its to see how Oscar put his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—how he transforms himself not only into the great and powerful wizard but into a better man.
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. “Oz The Great and Powerful” is produced by Joe Roth, with a screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire (credit not final). Grant Curtis, Palak Patel, Philip Steuer and Josh Donen are serving as executive producers. “Oz The Great and Powerful” opens in Singapore theaters on March 7, 2013.
