Here's the first official 30-second TV Spot for Sam Raimi's new fantasy adventure film, "Oz: The Great and Powerful" starring James Franco as Oscar Diggs, an aspiring traveling master magician and illusionist who magically gets transported to a far away land called Oz, where he meets three witches who he must convince that he is the great and powerful wizard that they were expecting.
The film also stars Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, and Michelle Williams as the three iconic witches, "Oz: The Great and Powerful" is set to open in theaters on March 8th.
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.
