Proving again that Dorothy Gale didn’t have a clue what she was talking about when she told Glinda that witches are old and ugly, EW can confirm a Variety report that Michelle Williams is in talks to play the good witch in Disney’s Wizard of Oz prequel, Oz, The Great and Powerful.

Williams, who recently earned her second Oscar nomination for her role in Blue Valentine, would join two other stunning non-hags, Rachel Weisz and Mila Kunis, who would play sister witches destined for evil. James Franco is the wizard-to-be in the project, to be directed by Sam Raimi.
