About Oz the Great and Powerful

In Oz, nothing is what it seems.

Oscar Diggs, a less than honorable circus magician, suddenly finds himself whisked from Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz. Mistaken for the magical wizard the people of Oz have been waiting for, Oscar thinks he has found an easy road to fame and fortune. But, upon meeting three witches, Theodora, Evanora, and Glinda, he soon learns otherwise. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems Oz and its inhabitants are facing, Oscar must figure out who is good and who is evil. Then, he can use his skills of magical arts and illusion to help save Oz. In the process, he can also transform himself into not only the great and powerful Wizard of Oz, but also a better man.

Oz the Great and Powerful is rated PG for sequences of action and scary images, and brief mild language. Stars include James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, and Michelle Williams.

    I like the sequence of when the trailer goes from black and white to color. The runaway balloon is creepy and scary and exciting.

  2. Steph says

    I like the colorful scenes from the trailer, the balloon hovering above the city, and the china doll character and the monkey of course.

  3. Lisa Brown says

    I like the clip: Bananas. Love the bright colored graphics (the yellow brick road) and the monkey :)

  4. Stacey B says

    I liked the clip of the man and monkey walking down the yellow brick road talking, gives you a good insight into how the movie is. Looks like an awesome remake

  5. Mary W says

    When the monkey is walking down the golden road in the second trailer, the monkey looks so real. The movements are incredibly life like.

  6. Kelly D says

    I liked when Oscar was shown the Royal Treasure of Oz and told it would be his after he defeated the Wicked Witch.

  7. jeff summers says

    I like the moment when Oscar realizes all is not what it seems in Oz, and must shift his thinking.

  8. April Yedinak says

    I loved the Practical Sets video. I love seeing the behind the scenes workings of how movies are made.

  9. Tabathia B says

    When he sees the monkey and ask is that a talking monkey in a bellhop suit

  10. Kate F. says

    I watched the practical sets clip. I thought it was cool that they made actual sets for the actors to work with.

  11. Ellie W says

    I’ve seen the trailer several times and I think it’s cool when it changes from black and white to color.

  12. Tiffany Walker says

    It definitely all looks so visually stunning.
    I really love how the directors actually built sets and the actors werent just on green screens the whole time. I think that was for the better, it really shows :)

  13. K.Pugh says

    My favorite part of the trailer is the amazing forest scene. The colors are beautiful.
    Thanks for the chance.

  14. Jeanna says

    I love the trailer! I like how it starts out in black & white & moves onto color! It really sucks you in and makes you want to find out what happened!

  15. Liz says

    I saw it in the theater with my daughter. We both loved the scene with the “tricks” in the poppy field.

  16. Heather says

    I liked the interaction between the Wizard and the monkey. I also liked seeing the sets in the behind the scenes. Can’t believe they built all of that!

  17. ginette4 says

    I love the vivid colours that are captured in this movie and my favourite line is just because she jumped off the cliff you’re going to jump off the cliff and the monkey answers..”I have wings”.

  18. Heather Hayes Panjon says

    I Love The Star Filled Cast, The Detailed Scenes That Capture The Emotion Of The Film!

  19. Stephanie C says

    I love the black and white beginning and then it switched to be very colorful. Love all the colors!!

  20. David says

    My kids love the original Wizard of Oz, but after watching the trailer, I am not sure if it looks like something that they could follow. It seems a little darker, and less upbeat than the original. Also, I think I saw Kathie Lee Gifford in the clip.

  21. Renee s says

    I like the parts with Finley the monkey and all of the pretty colors! I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I really would like to :)

  22. Annemarie Z. says

    I like how they talk about the actual sets were built (not just using blue screens) in the third trailer!

  23. Holly Messana says

    I love the fact that the sets were made and were not all blue screen. I also enjoyed the monkey and “OZ” walking down the path talking about how they were going to defeat the witch.

  24. Laura Jacobson says

    Oh I loved when James Franco and the monkey were walking the yellow brick road! I have been a huge James Franco fan since General Hospital…so its so neat to see him in this role!

  25. Michelle Tucker says

    I like the bananas clip. Also in the trailer, where the monkey sneezed on the plans.

  26. michele p says

    I liked the clip that showed how he arrived in Oz, the talking bellhop monkey, how he traveled in a bubble and of course the treasure of Oz that is his if he defeats the wicked witch that is!

  27. says

    The ‘bananas’ scene is absolutely the best. I don’t think they could’ve gotten Finley’s expressions any better! Hilarious!

  28. Georgia Beckman says

    I have not seen the movie yet & I’m just dying too. I agree, that monkey is one adorable little guy! My favorite part of the trailer was the scene with all of the gold everywhere! I used to have a recurring dream similar to that exact scene when I was a child!

  29. Jamie Brigham says

    I love the inside of the tornado and the hot air balloon flying, bwhahaha I love the talking flying Monkey.

  30. Jennifer says

    I loved the original Judy Garlands Wizard of Oz and I was a little sceptical of a prequel however after watching Oz the Great and Powerful for the first time on Blu Ray 3d last night I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, the cinematography was magically beautiful and I found Michele Williams performance of Glinda very heartwarming but winners of the cute awards has to go to Finley and China Doll who were equally engaging. The scenes I loved the most are when Oz stumbles across China Doll and magically glues her back together and then tries to send her on her way towards the Emerald City but she wasn’t having any of it!
