It’s the Wizard of Oz like you’ve never seen him before. The movie trailer for the upcoming movie Oz: The Great and Powerful premiered at Comic-Con this week, and it looks to be amazing.

The film is directed by Sam Raimi and stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, and Rachel Weisz. This film would seem to have three witches rather than the two that we’ve come to know and love from the classic Wizard of Oz, and they’re proving to be much sexier.

The film is the story of a circus magician who finds himself in the land of Oz, and it begins in black and white, just as the original Wizard of Oz. The film is a prequel to the classic, and introduces characters that were never shown in the past. The trailer also shows that Oz isn’t the colorful, beautiful place that many remember it, but parts of it, along with those who reside there, are dark and sinister.

We’ll have to wait a while to watch the final product. The movie has a release date of March 8, 2013, so for now we’ll just have to sit back and speculate on whether or not it’ll really be as good as the trailer looks.

Is this a movie you’ll check out?
