We’re quite excited about seeing Sam Raimi’s prequel to the beloved classic THE WIZARD OF OZ, with OZ: THE GREAT & POWERFUL. The cast gathered also has a lot to with that, with the ever-talented James Franco headlining alongside a host of acting beauties with Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Mila Kunis as a trio of (friendly or ferocious) witches looking to see how his arrival affects those living in the Emerald City in fulfilling a prophecy.

The trailers and previous poster designs suggest a magical, family-focused fantasy film and this new Japanese poster certainly adds to that tone.

OZ: THE GREAT & POWERFUL will land in cinemas 8th March 2013 and co-stars Zach Braff, Abigail Spencer, Joey King, Bill Cobbs and Tony Cox (possibly representing those in the The Lollipop Guild).
