I am thrilled to share the first trailer for OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL which will be coming to theaters in March 8th, 2013 my anticipation for this movie is high. This has been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl, now we get to have the prequel to enjoy, the effects look amazing.  I do not have the DVD, video or VHS of The Wizard of Oz, why?  Why would I have never bought this for my kids?  Because the sheer anticipation for Disney movies when they came on TV was a thrill for me when I was a young girl.  I did not want my kids to lose that feeling, if they could watch the movie anytime they wanted to how would they have that feeling like I did.  So today if The Wizard of Oz is on I am watching it, with joy.

I am really excited for this one!  Watch it over at iTunes.



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.

“Oz The Great and Powerful” is produced by Joe Roth and written by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire (credit not final). Grant Curtis, Philip Steuer and Palak Patel are serving as executive producers. “Oz The Great and Powerful” opens in U.S. theaters on March 8, 2013.
