In July we brought you the magnificent pictures of the scenery as created for Sam Raimi‘s movie Oz: The Great and Powerful, starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Joey King and Zach Braff, and we shared the dazzling trailer in November. Today we have closer pictures of the characters in their beautiful costumes. Just amazing. Cannot wait.
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 of Oz but into a better man as well.
Oz: The Great and Powerful, starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, and Michelle Williams, is slated to hit theaters on March 8th, 2013.
