Walt Disney Studios had the world premiere last night of the upcoming film, Oz The Great and Powerful. All the stars of the film were in attendance at the El Capitan Theater on Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood. James Franco entered on Â a hot air balloon with Mila Kunia, Rachel Weisz, and Michelle Williams walking down the yellow brick road.
Disneyâ€™sÂ fantastical adventure â€œOz The Great and Powerful,â€ directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baumâ€™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 heâ€™s hit the jackpotâ€”fame and fortune are his for the takingâ€”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 everyoneâ€™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, ingenuityâ€”and even a bit of wizardryâ€”Oscar transforms himself not only into the great wizard but into a better man as well.
â€œOz The Great and Powerfulâ€ is produced by Joe Roth, with screen story by Mitchell Kapner and screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire. Grant Curtis, Palak Patel, Josh Donen and Philip Steuer are serving as executive producers. â€œOz The Great and Powerfulâ€ opens in U.S. theaters on March 8, 2013.
