A new trailer for Sam Raimi's Wizard of Oz prequel Oz: The Great and Powerful has been released, breaking down all the witches and bringing us into the gorgeous Emerald City.

The more we see of Raimi's (Spider-Man) Oz, the more intrigued we are to see the luscious world brought to life with a huge budget under the direction of such a seasoned veteran.

Here's the synopsis for the prequel:

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.
