Just shown off to the gathered hoards in Hall H Disney have released the first trailer for Sam Raimi’s OZ: The Great and Powerful starring James Franco, Mila Kunis and Michelle Williams and it’s gorgeous.
Flying monkeys, a solid dose of CGI as well as a dash of Alice in Wonderland flair permeate the proceedings and it has one ruby-slippered foot in the world of OZ we know and love and another in a new, slightly odd-looking world. I’m sold.
When small-time magician Oscar Diggs (James Franco) pulls one flimflam too many, he finds himself hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz where he must somehow transform himself into the great and powerful Wizard—and just maybe into a better man as well.
Here’s the trailer all the way from Comic-Con,
