There are a lot of witches in Sam Raimi’s “Oz: The Great and Powerful”, so you can be forgiven for not knowing who is who. Then again, there is only three, so you might want to see a doctor if you can’t keep them apart from one another. Anyhoo, medical advice notwithstanding, here’s a new featurette for “Oz: The Great and Powerful”, complete with a movie voiceover guy who sounds like he’s doing an old fashioned movie from the ’40s or ’50s or thereabouts. I think that was the point, though.
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.
Starring Mila Kunis, James Franco, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, Abigail Spencer, Joey King, Zach Braff, Martin Klebba, Ted Raimi, Bill Cobbs, Tony Cox, Tim Holmes, and directed by Sam Raimi of “Spider-Man” fame.
