There have been a range of Oz projects since Wizard of Oz seventy years ago and in 2013 we will be returning this magical and mystical place.
Sam Raimi is taking us back to the Land of Oz in a brand new adventure that is a prequel to the 1939 classic.
And we have some fantastic new vibrant images from the movie:
James Franco leads the cast as Oscar Diggs, a small time musician who finds himself in this new world.
He is joined on the cast list by Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams who play three witches.
When Oscar Diggs (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 (Kunis), Evanora (Weisz) and Glinda (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.
Oz The Great And Powerful is released 8th March.
