'Oz: The Great and Powerful' Trailer Hits Online Straight From Comic-Con

Jul 12, 2012

Disney debuted quite a few pieces of footage from some of its most anticipated new films at Comic-Con today, and of course one of the goodies in question was Oz the Great and Powerful from the great Sam Raimi. But limiting all the cool stuff to Hall H is for the birds and thankfully Disney knows this, so they've released the exact same trailer that just enraptured audiences there to the world at large.

Check it out below or hop over to Apple to grab it in full 1080p HD.

Disney's fantastical adventure "Oz The Great and Powerful," directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. 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 of Oz but into a better man as well.
