Today in Hall-H at the San Diego Comic-Con, the Walt Disney Studios showed off the first trailer for OZ: The Great and Powerful. Now we have it… and you do, too.

 

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.

OZ: The Great and Powerful arrives in theaters on March 08, 2013.

    It looks good, but if the “comin’ atcha” moments for the 3D are as distracting in the whole film as they were in the trailer (the hat, the flames, the flying monkeys, etc.), I might have to pass. I go with my family, and people with motion issues can’t watch 3D movies, so that experience is just annoying instead of dazzling without it.
