There’s No Place Like Oz
Spider-Man’s Sam Raimi returns to the director chair for the prequel of the 1939 masterpiece. Even though we just have the poster and this synopsis to go on, it looks as if we are in for an epic journey:

Oz: The Great and Powerful 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.
Although all there is to look at right now is this poster, with Comic Con so close, there is sure to be a movie trailer in the near future!
Oz: The Great and Powerful drops into theaters March 8th, 2013.
