Oz The Great and Powerful
Plot / Synopsis
Disney's fantastical adventure "Oz The Great and Powerful," imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved wizard character.
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 but into a better man as well.

People who grew up with the story might have asked the question Ïf Oz was like Dorothy, an ordinary human, what was his story?". Finally after decades, Hollywoiod through Walt Disney Pictures now tells the story behind (or origin) of the Great and Powerful Wizard of Oz.
Walt Disney Pictures has done an excellent job with the presentation of Oz The Great and Powerful official trailer. The magical land of Oz has been beautifully re-imagined in 3-D. The cast of the 2013 prequel to Oz is pretty solid with James Franco as Oscar Diggs (will be later known as the Wizard of Oz). The film can cater to both kids with its magical and fantasy setting, and adults who grew up hearing the story of The Wizard of Oz who wanted to know the origin of the Wizard who helped Dorothy.
