Oz the great and powerful

Disney gaf een eerste (fijne) teaser-poster vrij voor Sam Raimi‘s “Oz the great and powerful”. De film wordt een prequel op het klassieke fantasieverhaal “The wizard of Oz” en voert James Franco op Oz himself.

Het verhaal draait rond Franco’s personage, een onbeduidende circus goochelaar met een twijfelachtige ethiek, die plots getransporteerd wordt (doet wat denken aan “John Carter” niet)
naar Oz. Enkel en alleen maar om vast te stellen dat hij temidden een gevecht tussen 3 heksen is beland, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) en Glinda (Michelle Williams) geven het beste van zichzelf.

Alsof deze 4 nog niet genoeg zijn bevat de vast verder nog Zach Braff (“Scrubs”) als circus assistent, Braff gaat ook z’n stem verlenen aan de vliegende aap Finley.

Disney zal de film promoten op ComicCon, verwacht je dus maar aan nog veel meer marketing materiaal, bovenstaande teaser-poster is nog maar het tipje van de sluier. In Amerika verschijnt de film vanaf begin maart 2013, een Belgische release datum is voorlopig nog onbekend.

Hieronder staat de officiële mededeling van Disney:

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.

When small-time magician Oscar Diggs (James Franco) pulls one flimflam too many, he finds himself hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz where he must somehow transform himself into the great and powerful Wizard—and just maybe into a better man as well.
