Full Trailer For Sam Raimi’s Oz The Great And Powerful

Posted by November 14, 2012 Comment

Disney have just dropped their first full trailer for Oz The Great and Powerful, next year’s lavish, epic reworking of a fantasy classic.*

There’s a lot more plot in this new trailer, and it up-ends some previous assumptions about how things were going down. For example, the Wicked Witch seems to co-exist alongside Evanora and Theodora, so it seems there’s more of a Jekyll and Hyde component than I previously believed.

It looks there’s supposed to be an element of mystery to the Wicked Witch’s identity. Oops. I think I’ve been spoiling that for a few months now. Better stop…

Yes, that all appears to take place in a fantasy world that bends the normal rules of physics, most often optics. Not quite the way Peter Jackson handles a fantasy epic, for example, but this is Oz, after all.

*As opposed to Alice in Wonderland, 2010’s lavish reworking of a fantasy classic, or Maleficent in 2014. It’s getting to be a bit of a thing over at Disney.
