A new behind-the-scenes featurette on Sam Raimi’s Oz The Great and Powerful has hit the web. Check it out below.
In the film, 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.
In the featurette, the cast talks about the magical world of Oz. Out of all the actors, Franco seems to be the most excited about the project. There’s some great shots of the setting and also some behind-the-scenes footage of the crew working on the set.
Oz opens in theaters on March 8th. Here’s the video:
