I am sure majority of you have heard about this children's novel titled Wizard Of Oz. This time, Disney is presenting us Oz: The Great and Powerful movie!!! I cannot express in words how much I love Disney movies, especially movies that are adapted from children's novels and fairytales. They never grow old!
Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. 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 but into a better man as well. “Oz The Great and Powerful” is produced by Joe Roth, with a screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire (credit not final). Grant Curtis, Palak Patel, Philip Steuer and Josh Donen are serving as executive producers. “Oz The Great and Powerful” opens in Singapore theaters on March 7, 2013.
What excites me in this movie is that the movie is not entirely based on the original story of Wizard Of Oz. It seems so much more magical, adventurous and interesting! I am definitely looking forward to Oscar's journey in the Land of Oz - how he is going to overcome the villians and fight the evil while trying to survive in a land where he was lost in. There are definitely life lessons to be learnt here! Say for example, after a life-changing experience at Land of Oz, he changed for the better? Well, that's for me and you to find out!
I am also looking forward to the amazing graphics and animation. Disney never disappoints me and judging by the trailer, I am already convinced that this movie will be a great hit.
