Sweet Trailer…Sam Raimi's 'Oz The Great and Powerful'

Sam Raimi’s successful genre crossing career has gone from horror/camp to comic books and now he’s treading new ground…somewhere over the rainbow that is. From the first images and teaser trailer it looks like his trip to the land of OZ would be one of wondrous delight. Well brace yourselves, this full trailer for Disney’s OZ The Great and Powerful is even more vibrant lush and magical…Enjoy!

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. Those names might sound new to you (unless you saw the musical Wicked) but Theodora has a different moniker…
