Earlier this week two new and very brief clips were revealed on a US talk show for Disney’s upcoming Oz: The Great and Powerful. Now one of those clips has landed in a much better extended version, while the second clip is brand new.
The first clip see’s James Franco’s Oz struggling to travel by bubble (who wouldn’t), and while the clip features plenty of lighthearted comedy, it is the scale and wonderful scenery which is showcased brilliantly. It would appear that Raimi has done an excellent job re-imagining Oz. The second clip features two of the films witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis) and Evanora (Rachel Weisz) having a bit of a disagreement, which ends in a way that could only happen with two witches. Put it this way, the argument gets a little heated!
Sam Raimi directs from a screenplay written by Mitchell Kapner, and the story is based on the novel written by L. Frank Baum. The credited cast includes James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, Abigail Spencer, Joey King, Zach Braff and Martin Klebba.

Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, 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.
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.
