Trailer - Oz The Great & Powerful
Disney is tempting fate with a quasi-rehashing of the Wizard of Oz tale scheduled for a spring 2013 release. Now...f@#$ing around with a classic that is the perfection of the 1939 original film version is not highly advised, but after seeing this teaser trailer we surmise that this is, point of fact, not a remake. Rather, it is an additional tale based in the land of Oz with some familiar characters re-invigorated, and with L. Frank Baum writing 13 additional Oz based books, there is plenty of source material to be exploited. We especially dig the homage to the original in the changing from black & white to colour once in Oz.
