Disney releases a new clip for its upcoming feature, “Oz The Great and Powerful.”
On the heels of its interactive Web experiment, “Find Your Way to Oz,” Disney has released a new clip for the upcoming feature, Oz The Great and Powerful.
Directed by Sam Raimi, Oz The Great and Powerful imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. 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.
Watch the new clip, below, which shows Oscar and Glinda floating in computer-generated bubbles through stunning CG landscape and skies:
