First Look At Sam Raimi’s Oz The Great And Powerful

The first promotional image for Sam Raimi‘s next reveals the lead character and his plot-crucial hot air balloon. Basically, it’s The Franco in a top hat.

I’m quite the Raimi¬†fan, and Oz¬†The Great and Powerful was written by the tremendous David Lindsay Abaire, so I’m very keenly looking forward to seeing more. There’s going to be a panel at Comic-Con, almost certainly including footage, and hopefully something online around the same time. I’m rotting for some top class flying monkey action, though a look at Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz as the witches wouldn’t go amiss.
