Hey, my wish came true! As I said yesterday, I’ve always been perplexed by the idea of doing a Wizard of Oz reboot under the guidance of Sam Raimi and starring James Franco, but y’know, after seeing this trailer, I think it could work. I’ve also been musing over how this film would appear when viewed alongside The Wizard of Oz. I mean, it’d explain a few things, right? Like why Oz would want the Wicked Witch’s broomstick, for one. Unfortunately, I’m getting a distinct Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland vibe from this trailer. I guess you can call me cautiously optimistic about this one.
Oz the Great and Powerful comes out March 8, 2013.
