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.
