Disney has just released a one-minute sneak peek for Sam Raimi's new fantasy adventure film, "Oz: The Great and Powerful" for international markets. In this new clip, we see more footage from the film starring James Franco as Oscar Diggs, a small-time circus magician, who gets whisked away into a fantasy land where Oscar meets Theodora (Mila Kunis), one of three witches who believes that he might be the great and powerful wizard that they have been expecting to bring peace to their world.
"Oz" also stars Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Zach Braff as the flying monkey Finley, the film is scheduled 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.
