Oz the Great and Powerful!

Yay Disney's back with another awesome movie!!!
The previous time I was talking about Brave, linking to Wreck-It Ralph & now?
A totally different Disney movie again!
Love how they never fail to excite me over and over again.

Soooo what's this movie again??
Oz the Great and Powerful!!!

What excites me about this movie is definitely the storyline!
(read on about what's up with the storyline after the synopsis & trailer!)

Here's the synopsis!
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 and powerful wizard but into a better man as well. “Oz The Great and Powerful” is produced by Joe Roth, with a screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire (credit not final). Grant Curtis, Palak Patel, Philip Steuer and Josh Donen are serving as executive producers. “Oz The Great and Powerful” opens in Singapore theaters on March 7, 2013.
& here's the trailer!!
(The trailer really got me, & i was like dayum got to catch this!)

 Is it making you excited too?!

Actually, what's making me REALLY excited is that I'll get to catch 'Wizard of Oz' in the wizard's perspective!

Remember our childhood stories about Wizard of Oz?
 They are always from Dorothy's viewpoint!
How she's from Kansas & got swept off etc etc? RMB??
With her dog Toto! 
Nostalgic, really.

& then there was the Wicked Musical 2 years back in 2011!
 This was the point of view from Glinda (the Good Witch of the North) & Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West)!
Leslie & I had the privilege of watching it!
What's more, on 8th Dec - our 15th monthsary! Heh.
(Here's the post on Wicked!)
So finally, this time, it's from the Wizard's perspective!!!
I know all 3 adaptations are different but it's still interesting to see one from the Wizard's point of view!
A handsome wizard at that ;)
Recognize him yet?
James Franco!! 
The lead in 127 hours, Rise of the Planet of the Apes etc
& he kick-started his career with Spiderman - he played Harry Osborn!

Haha yup, so other than the superb graphics that any Disney movie will definitely have, I'm excited to catch the show cause it is from the Wizard's perspective and the Wizard's handsome HAHA #cantbelievemyself
Of course, the rest of the cast is awesome as well!
With Mila Kunis(love her!), Rachel Weisz & Michelle Williams!
