If there were any question as to whether Sam Raimi understands the unique visual challenges of making a Wizard of Oz prequel, some new promotional shots answer the question. Yes, he gets it—and he wants to absolutely blow our minds.
There's really only one word to describe these luscious peeks at the world Raimi is creating for Oz The Great and Powerful: gorgeous. The colors pop, and it truly seems to fit the aesthetic of the classic original.
The film stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Zach Braff, and it follows Franco's Oscar Diggs as he's transported to the magical world of Oz.
