Disney has released two more 30-second TV Spots for Sam Raimi's first 3D film "Oz: The Great and Powerful," the first Spot had recently aired during The Grammy Awards on Sunday night, and the second international spot is set to air in New Zealand sometime soon.
In the film, James Franco stars as Oscar Diggs, a traveling circus magician who magically gets whisked away to a far away land named Oz , and assumes the identity of a powerful wizard that the people have been waiting for to set the kingdom free from the wicked witch that controls their city. "Oz: The Great and Powerful" 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.
