Oz The Great and Powerful trailer see James Franco in magical adventure

Disney has released a new trailer for their upcoming fantasy adventure film Oz The Great and Powerful.

The film is a prequel to The Wizard Of Oz, and stars James Franco as Oscar Diggs, who becomes The Wizard.

Meanwhile Zach Braff, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, and Rachel Weisz also have roles – the three ladies in a variety of amazing outfits.

Sam Raimi directed the film, while the film has a similar look to Tim Burton and Disney’s 2010 version of Alice in Wonderland - no surprise given that film’s massive success.

The Wizard Of Oz has had an enduring legacy, with the likes of Broadway musical Wicked also based around that story, and set for film adaptation.

Oz The Great and Powerful hits theatres on March 8, 2013 in the UK and US.
