Oz The Great And Powerful

Have you heard of the movie called Disney’s OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL?  When I first heard of it, I thought they were re-making the Wizard of Oz, which is one of my favorite movies.  I wasn't sure about that, then I discovered it's going to be the story of how The Wizard becomes, well The Wizard.  Now, I can't wait to see it, but I guess I'll have to wait until it comes out next year. 

About the movie:

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.
