The Golden Globes took place last night and a brand new TV Spot for Oz: The Great and Powerful was released. With just a few weeks before the movie is released, a lot of new material is being released to make sure that the anticipation levels are at a peak when the film hits the big screen.
The synopsis for Oz: The Great and Powerful is as follows:
Disney's fantastical adventure "Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. 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.
As well as James Franco, Oz: The Great and Powerful also stars Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Zach Braff. Oz: The Great and Powerful is directed by Sam Raimi, based on a screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and is set to be released on March 8 in both the US and the UK.
