Who’s watching the big game this weekend? I’m not a huge football fan myself but it’s a good excuse to snack and I love the commercials. 😉 One of the commercials this year will be for Walt Disney Studios’ “Oz The Great And Powerful”, due out in theaters on March 8. I can’t wait! This looks like an awesome movie. Check out the sneak peak of the ad that will run during the Super Bowl this weekend:
“Oz The Great and Powerful” is the story of Oz told from the Wizard’s perspective! Never wondered where he came from, did ya?
Here’s the scoop:
Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. 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 wizard but into a better man as well.
After the commercial airs check out Disney’s website where the witch and all her power will take over the homepage! Can’t wait to see what this looks like! You can keep up with all the latest “Oz The Great And Powerful” news on their Facebook and Twitter pages. At least we know there will be one commercial we’ll love this year during the Super Bowl!
