VIDEO: James Franco Is the Wizard in Oz: The Great and Powerful

Oz: The Great and Powerful takes place before The Wizard of Oz. The film doesn’t come out until next spring, but director Sam Raimi dropped the first teaser at Comic-Con today. James Franco plays Oz, a half-cocked magician in Kansas finding his way to the Emerald City.

It looks Amazing. Keeping that “Oz” feel, the movie goes from black and white into color.
