I'm always excited for more Oz - and this looks visually promising at the least.
A prequel to the 1939 MGM classic, in Disney's new Oz: The Great & Powerful, we see the arrival of the future wizard played by an always dreamy James Franco. And just like the original, Kansas has yet to discover technicolor and tornados are the most convenient mode of transportation.
We only get a hint of my favorite green skinned character - but she seems more evil than Wicked.
While nothing can beat the classic, I'm hopeful we get something slightly twisted enough to make a new cult of its own - as in another favorite of mine, 1985's Return to Oz. God I love me some Fairuza Balk as Dorothy.
