He’s off to be the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz! That’s right, James Franco plays the famed Wizard in Disney’s new Oz the Great and Powerful, and the epic full length trailer is here.
The movie follows Franco’s character, Oscar Diggs, a regular magician in Kansas who gets transported to the Land of Oz by a wild tornado. There he sets off on a journey to fulfill his destiny and meets with three witches — Theodora, Evanora, and Glinda, played by Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams, respectively.
The film was produced by Joe Roth, who also produced Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, so expect to see similarities. The movie hits theatres March 8, 2013.
