when i hear the word 'Oz' i would instantly think of The Wizard of Oz. unfortunately for me, i don't have any memory about the book because i've only read it once when i was a child. i actually have a plan to read the original work, but haven't because of my piling TBR list. but when i saw the trailer to Oz: The Great and Powerful, i made up my mind to read the book soon! but don't be mistaken, because this movie is not the movie adaptation of The Wizard of Oz. this movie is intended to be the prequel to the movie The Wizard of Oz; which tells the story of how the wizard arrived in Oz, defeated the enemy, and became the ruler of the land. let's check out the trailer below ;)
do you like it? you know what, i LOVE IT! i'm pretty sure the special effects would be amazing and a great pleasure for the eyes. the movie is directed Sam Raimi (the director for The Spiderman Trilogy) and produced by the same producer for Alice in Wonderland. for those who've seen Alice in Wonderland, you can expect the same level of extreme imagination - if not higher - in this movie. further more, i'm loving the cast which includes James Franco as Oscar Diggs; and for the three witches there are: Mila Kunis as Theodora, Michelle Williams as Glinda the Good Witch, Rachel Weisz as Evanora. for me, the casts are pretty promising; i hope they'll do a great job for this awesome-looking movie. the movie is set to be released March 2013; really really can't wait!
