Now, after all these years, the Wizard’s story is getting a facelift in Diseny’s ‘Oz: The Great And Powerful.’
The new movie isn’t a remake or retelling, but instead a prequel that focuses on the Wizard instead of Dorothy. The 3D action-adventure movie will tell the story of how the wizard got to the land of Oz. Here’s the official synopsis:
When Oscar Diggs, 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, Evanora and Glinda, 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.
As you can see in the trailer below, the Wizard seems to have an interesting story. Check it out:
