Did you make it to the theater to see Disney’s Oz The Great And Powerful? If you did you know what an awesome movie this is. WOW! I was blown away by all the cool special effects and I have to admit the plot was not what I anticipated. Without revealing too much, I was shocked at who the bad witch ended up being! Such a cool twist on this classic story. So if you caught it in theaters, it’s likely you want it for your home collection, and if you didn’t make it to the movies, you’re also in luck because Oz The Great And Powerful is now out on Blu-Ray Combo Pack! It was released just today, June 11. You can order on Amazon and grab your own copy now!
To celebrate the release I have some fun extras to share with you! China Girl was one of my favorite characters in the movie. She and Finley together added humor and a sweet spot to some intense scenes! I loved her. Her voice was that of Joey King. Check out these cool clips to see how they captured her facial expressions on China Girl, and how they brought China Girl to life. This is SO neat! The third video is a hilarious scene where she convinces Oz to let her be part of the witch hunt:
Isn’t she the cutest?! China Girl and Finley were two of the highlights of the movie for me. But ranking at least a close second were the costumes! They were SO cool, especially the witch gear! Even nasty witches can rock the right attire.
Check out this cool slideshow of Oz costumes to get a better look and read some of the comments that the stars made about their wardrobe!
Neat stuff, right?! Now despite the scare factor the Wicked Witch might have been my favorite character. She was just all that and a bag of chips. What a COOL role to play! Mila Kunis was fantastic. Check out this clip to see how she went from sweet to scary. The process is so amazing!
I love watching these bonus clips. You don’t realize all the detail that goes into these movies, all the amazingly talented people that come together to pull it off. Here’s another one that blew me away. This video talks about the making of the Wicked Witch Waltz. You know music always sets the mood! This is so neat to watch!
