Oz: The Great and Powerful - New Theatrical Trailer

Posted November 16, 2012 12:43 AM by Webmaster

Walt Disney StudiosWalt Disney Pictures has issued a new theatrical trailer for director Sam Raimi's Oz: The Great and Powerful, due in theaters in 3D and 2D early next year. The film's latest trailer reveals some of the finer points of screenwriters Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire story, which weaves the origin tale of L. Frank Baum's beloved Emerald City wizard. Raimi's The Wizard of Oz prequel makes its U.S. theatrical debut on March 8, 2013.

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 has 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 a great and powerful wizard but into a better man as well.

I sure hope the film matches how good the trailers make it look!

I love the original from 1939 and even though I am willing to give this a chance it doesn't seem to have the charm of the original classic.
Also I do not want a pale imitation of Frank Morgan's characterization, but I would have expected this wizard to be the same type of naive bumbler that Morgan was, not so serious.

Impressive!!! Now I need to buy the Wizard of Oz on BD (even if I know that a new anniversary edition is planned in late 2013).

Wow, looks very computer generated and unimaginative. One of the last very good Disney films was Walter Murch's RETURN TO OZ and they buried it because of its dark and turbulent themes. Freddie Francis lensed the first half and it looks like an early Hammer flick. RETURN TO OZ has more verve than this awful looking dimensionless trailer. But this sure as hell doesn't make me want to see it. I enjoyed Raimi's work but it has to be castrated artistically since it's a Disney World after all.

Seems like Sam Raimi presenting a Tim Burton film.

I think Alex DeLarge and Sky_Captain85 have both got it right here. I saw the trailer in the theatre and it looks busy, flashy and dull. Mighty pretty, though.

So Much CG..I hope the story does not insult my intelligence..All the grand dames of the screnn M. Williams, Rachel Wetz....I don't care for Franco and casting Mila? I hope that Sam Rami does not sell out top the big studio stuff...Yet it looks as if he has...All the money to produce...Let's us wait and see....But the trailer looks, so so

Looks quite promising, but then so did Alice in Wonderland at first, hope this one delivers.

Nothing like raping a classic. Another lifeless boring CGI filled corporate money grabbing unoriginal idea of a movie. Also, James Franco is a horrible actor. But it will probably do well since most people lack imagination .

This looks utterly amazing. You can bash this film all you want, but it'll do great. Don't like it, don't pay your money and see it.

Weather it succeeds or fails its good to see Oz getting rebooted. This is a fantasy world that should be in the public eye for the younger generation.

I quite liked the trailer, but one thing I doubt is Disney's marketing... releasing it in March? Wasn't John Carter reason enough to release it during summer or during Christmas? No matter, I want to see this one so bad, seeing this trailer!

Simonbergeron, I agree. I still feel if John Carter was released around the holidays or during the summer, it would've done WAYYY better. It was a big epic family friendly 3D movie, just like this!

Saw the extended trailer in 3D when I went to see Wreck It Ralph 3D over the weekend. Looks fun and fantastic! Can't wait to Sam Raimi's vision of Oz! He's come a long way since the Evil Dead films!

Doesn't look great. Not original and a lot of CG animation and settings...
