The upcoming Disney film Oz The Great and Powerful, which tells the story of how The Wizard of Oz came to Oz, has released a new image today!
Next March, Disney will tell the tale of how Oscar Wiggs (James Franco) made his way into the Land of Oz. Upon ending up there after his hot air balloon meets a tornado, he meets three witches: Glinda (Michelle Williams), Theodora (Mila Kunis), and Evanora (Rachel Weisz). As Yahoo! states, we know Glinda becomes the Good Witch of the North, but it’s unclear whether Theodora or Evanora will become the green-skinned Wicked Witch of the West. The book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz doesn’t give any reference to the names of witches, and Elphaba from Wicked was named as a tribute to the The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’s author, L. Frank Baum.
Check out the awesome new picture of The Wicked Witch of the West below! This is the first section of a three-part image.
We’ll be sure to post the other two sections as they’re released! You can also watch the exciting teaser trailer here!
What do you think of the new image? Who do you think will play the green-skinned Wicked Witch of the West, and who do you think will play Witch who is later killed by Dorothy’s house? Leave us your thoughts below!
