Of the three competing Wizard of Oz movies slated for release in 2013—yes, there are three Wizard of Oz movies slated for release in 2013—the most anticipated is probably Sam Raimi’s Oz: The Great and Powerful, a prequel to the 1939 classic. (The other two will be Dorothy of Oz, an animated sequel, and Oz Wars, a stop motion martial arts version from the director of Corpse Bride).
In Raimi’s version, James Franco will star as Oscar Diggs, a small-time circus magician who is transported to The Land of Oz and becomes a figure in the local political scene. The three witches will be played by Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, and Michelle Williams.
Here’s the first poster, which may or not not have been photoshopped together from images from the 1939 original.
