At some point today, we’re going to get a trailer for Oz: The Great and Powerful, the highly-anticipated film that asks the question: “Hey, how did that dude behind the curtain get to run that crazy land anyway?” Starring James Franco and directed by Sam Raimi, the prequel to the classic, The Wizard of Oz, introduces us to Oscar Biggs, who is whisked away to the magical land and decides that he can really make a difference by conning everyone into thinking he’s a wizard.
Standing in his way, though, are the three witches – played by Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, and Michelle Williams – and they’re not really buying his BS. Williams will play Glinda the Good Witch, and I’m predicting that Weisz will play the Wicked Witch. That leaves Kunis as, I’m guessing, the Smoking Hot Witch. At least that’s how my whole casting process would go. That’s not to take anything away from Weisz, who is also quite the looker, but she’s had a kid, so I assume she’s cranky.
Speaking of Kunis, here’s a clip of her talking about Oz. I’d probably watch her talk about paint drying. And after the jump, you can check out Entertainment Tonight’s rehind behind-the-scenes look at the film, which hits theaters next March.
UPDATE, MY PRETTIES: Here’s the trailer for Oz.
