Hollywood is not only caught up in a reboot craze, but prequels are also all the rage. And of course, now, The Wizard of Oz has even managed to get one. Because nothing is sacred. However, I have to admit that I’m looking forward to Sam Raimi’s Oz, The Great and Powerful.
In this new film, we will be meeting Oz (James Franco), a carnival magician from Kansas who is trying to get out of town in a hot air balloon. Obviously, a tornado sends him spinning into the world that is eventually named after him. Yes, we already know the story if we’ve seen the film it’s based on, but Hollywood felt the need to expand on that idea.
And now, thanks to the San Diego Comic Con, new footage from this film has surfaced.
