I’m pretty sure I just saw James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, and Rachel Weisz in a trailer for a The Wizard Of Oz remake to end all The Wizard Of Oz remakes. Some people were wondering why a classic movie needed this treatment. Run, don’t walk and you’ll find out.
Oz The Great And Powerful: First Trailer
Ok, what I looove about this trailer is that the storyline seems almost completely divorced from the original story we know and love and grew up on. When we saw the first poster a little while back I remember learning that the movie would focus on the wizard and that Dorothy would not appear. I thought this was strange, but now I’m thinking that it was a smart move. Too many of us are obsessed with Dorothy; she’s too much of an icon and it’s better to go this route instead.
Was anybody else loving this?! I totally got goosebumps; very dorky of me, I know. I’ll admit that I could be buying into the hype but I can’t fight that right now. I love James Franco! I love that it started off in black and white, then transitioned to color! I love how those flying monkeys came at us in the end! I love! It looks like such a magical story– but totally for adults. And we need a magical story sometime, lol.
