Witches, witches, everywhere – but which one of them is wicked? We don’t get the answer in this new, longer trailer for Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful – but the clip does formally introduce us to Mila Kunis’s good witch Theodora, Rachel Weisz’s vampy witch Evanora, and Michelle Williams’s clearly virtuous Glinda.
All three magical ladies are pleased as punch when James Franco’s “Wizard” is dropped into Oz by a mighty tornado; he’s destined to fulfill a prophecy by defeating that still unidentified wicked sorceress. L. Frank Baum geeks will also be pleased to get a better look at the Wizard’s new Ozian sidekicks – Finley, a kind flying monkey (voiced by Zack Braff), and a girl made of porcelain (voiced by Ramona and Beezus’s Joey King) who’s probably a native of Oz’s Dainty China Country – as well as Munchkins and the Yellow Brick Road. Go off and see the wizard for yourself:
Oz will make movie theaters more colorful on March 8.
