Disney’s new epic adventure movie, OZ The Great and Powerful is due for release on the 8th March in cinemas nationally and I am really looking forward to seeing it.
There is just something magical about Disney movies, even those aimed at adults, like the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ series, which engulfs you into the story line and take you away from your every day life for a few hours.
The story is set pre Dorothy, where Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, 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.
I think it sounds like a great story line with a feel good vibe to it. Below is the official trailer:
