At Comic-Con, Disney showed off the first trailer for Oz the Great and Powerful, and then released it online as a nice way of saying, “Thanks for standing in line, suckers!”  I thought the trailer looked very pretty, but I wanted to see more of the characters and plot.  Six new images from the film have gone online, and they once again confirm that the movie will look very pretty, which isn’t too much of a surprise considering that director Sam Raimi has a great eye for visuals and he has Robert Stromberg (Alice in Wonderland) as his production designer.  These images are basically stills from the trailer, but they’ll make for some nice desktop wallpaper.

Hit the jump to check out the images, and click here for our recap of the movie’s Comic-Con panel.  The film stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, and Rachel WeiszOz the Great and Powerful opens March 8, 2013.

Here’s the official synopsis for Oz the Great and Powerful:

Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. 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.

    Looks like a cross between Alice and Wonderland and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.

    It reminds me of Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.

      Yup.

    Did not have any interest in this before but now it’s got my attention. Looks very cool and Raimi is extra incentive to see it.

    Looks fake. They use green screen way too much.

      It’s Oz …

  • CanIHaveASlice?

    I’m not sure if I’m looking at concept art or screen shots here. It’s certainly vibrant and lively, reminiscent of technicolor. Looks good!

    The Wizard of Oz is probably one of the most boring movies I have seen.

      I’m sorry you’re dead inside.
