Forget what you know about Dorothy and her ruby slippers, this tale of Oz is nothing like you could imagine. In the new trailer for Oz: The Great and Powerful, a magician (James Franco) is transported from a black-and-white land to a colorful fantasy world (familiar, eh?) where he meets three witches: Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams). They believe he’s the key to a prophecy; as part of that prophecy, they would serve him in Emerald City — with a catch, of course…
Evanora explains to him, “The royal treasure of Oz, it belongs to you. But only after you defeat the Wicked Witch.”
Watch the video above to see Sam Raimi (director of the Spider-Man trilogy, ergo why James Franco was probably cast) and the producers of Alice in Wonderland‘s work come to life! The movie hits theaters March 8, 2013. Is it on your list of must-sees? Tell us in the comments, and check out the new movie poster below!
