If you’re one of the people who’s always wished for a prequel to The Wizard of Oz, your wish has been granted. That’s right, Disney has gone ahead and made said prequel and its called Oz the Great and Powerful. It stars James Franco and Milla Kunis and is directed by Sam Raimi.
The first trailer for the film screened at Comic-Con in San Diego on Thursday and we’ve got it for you right here, just in case you weren’t able to make it to the Con this year. No need to thank us. It’s what we do.
Disney also screened a trailer for The Lone Ranger, which we’ll get for you just as soon as we can. Meantime, this trailer gives us a good idea what we can from the movie which tells the story of how the Wizard (Franco) first arrived in Oz and became its ruler.
Look for Oz the Great and Powerful to hit theaters on March 8 of 2013. Check out the trailer after the break.
