About Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful

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 wizard
but into a better man as well.

“Oz The Great and Powerful” is produced by Joe Roth, with screen story by
Mitchell Kapner and screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire.
Grant Curtis, Palak Patel, Josh Donen and Philip Steuer are serving as
executive producers. “Oz The Great and Powerful” opens in U.S. theaters on
March 8, 2013.
