Disney looks to have quite the line up as their Wreck-It Ralph will hit theaters this November but next year we get an even more fantastical story with Sam Raimi’s Oz: The Great and Powerful. Raimi looks to trade web-shooters and campy horror for the Yellow Brick Road and wizards/witches. We got a stunningly gorgeous teaser poster last week and now, from Hall H of Comic-Con, comes this first look at the return to the mystical land of Oz in L. Frank Baum’s beloved story…enjoy! Oh, and make sure you take note of the sly transition from 4:3 to wide screen.
From a screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire Oz The Great and Powerfuldirected by Sam Raimi. His old Spidey series buddy James Franco will star as the titular Oz and he’ll be joined by a slew of fine actors including the three witches Theodora, Evanora, Glinda played by Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams respectively.
