Entertainment Tonight were invited onto the set of Sam Raimi’s Oz: The Great and Powerful, and they’ve uploaded their visit online for all to see (which usually means a trailer isn’t far off).
The 5 minute+ video features James Franco and Mila Kunis in what will eventually be Emerald City (it’s just a whole load of blue screen at the moment). The pair talk about their characters, and we see some of the sets and extras. Sam Raimi pops up briefly too.
Here’s the official synopsis:
When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis) Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.
Oz: The Great and Powerful will be released March 8th, 2013 and we’ll probably be getting more from the movie at Comic Con.
