Wal Mart Movie Center

Walmart Moviecenter and T-Mobile are having a special promotion to celebrate the release of Oz the Great and Powerful. In this sweepstakes, which is exclusive only to 5 Minutes for Mom readers, we are giving away a plush Finley from the new movie, along with the original Wizard of Oz on Blu-Ray. To round out the prize, we are also giving away a $100 Walmart gift card and a set of Moviecenter shirts.

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.

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.

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!
