When Oscar Diggs (Franco), a small-time circus magician is hurled away from Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s in the right place and he will be able to gain fame and fortune, that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Kunis), Evanora (Weisz) and Glinda (Williams). These three witches are not convinced he is the great wizard that everyone has been expecting. Oscar is reluctantly drawn into the problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants and he 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. Look for this film to hit theaters March 8, 2013.
