Oz: The Great and Powerful

from the OZ website at

Disney is coming out with a new take on the OZ story, called Oz: The Great and Powerful.  This time it's the story of how the "small time circus magician of dubious ethics" found himself in OZ and what happened once he got there. After watching this trailer, I am really psyched to see this movie when it comes out in March.

The young faux wizard from Kansas is played by James Franco. The movie was directed by Sam Raimi. Take a look at the trailer. 

I wonder if this means they are going to update the Wizard of Oz section in the Great Movie Ride and Disney Hollywood Studios. I hope not. It's my favorite room in that ride, although to be fair I have adjusted to the Johnny Depp additions in Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean. 

The cinematography in the promo photos looks so beautiful, although it's obviously cgi. OZ looks wondrous. I can't wait until March 8th.
