To help conclude your fantasy filled afternoon of acid-induced visuals we bring you a selection of new official stills taken from the Sam Raimi helmed prequelisation of 'The Wizard of Oz'. The new images from 'Oz: The Great and Powerful' give us some insight into the fantastic world of Oz in which lead star James Franco ('127 Hours') is wandering about in, which bears considerable resemblances to that of Tim Burton's recent imagining of 'Alice in Wonderland'. We also have a sneak peek at hot witch Glinda played by Michelle Williams. Mila Kunis -below ('Black Swan') and Rachel Weisz ('The Fountain') also appear as some finely figured witch types in the new feature and they're joined also by fellow castmates Abigail Spencer, Zach Braff ('Scrubs') and Joey King. Check out the new images below.
"'Oz The Great and Powerful'" imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs, 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, Evanora and Glinda, 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."
'Oz The Great and Powerful' opens on 8 March 2013.
