If you were impressed as I was with the Oz: The Great and Powerful poster released last week then the new trailer will surely blow your socks off. Apparently this debut preview comes to us second hand from this week's Comic Con, the ideal spot to launch such an awesome trailer. It's pure eye candy and a treat to The Wizard of Oz fan in many of us.
The trailer begins with an ambitious, pre-Oz Oscar Diggs (James Franco) who dreams of becoming more than a small-time magician. Be careful what you wish for. Diggs' hot air balloon is torn away from a dusty Kansas, engulfed in a massive tornado and taken to the wonderful, colorful land of Oz. He believes fame and fortune await him there until the encounters three witches: Theodora (Mila Kunis), Glinda (Michelle Williams) and Evanora (Rachel Weisz) who fail to believe Diggs is this so-called great wizard.
In a nutshell that's what we learn in the first teaser trailer for Sam Raimi's ambitious film. It's just enough footage of out of this world creatures and more for a teaser to whet our appetites, plus provides a little fright in the end, which I won't spoil for you.
Oz: The Great and Powerful will be in theaters March 8th, 2013.
