A couple of new TV spots for director Sam Raimi’s upcoming fantasy adventure Oz the Great and Powerful have made their way online. The film is a prequel to the classic The Wizard of Oz, and centers on a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics (James Franco) who finds himself transported to Oz and drawn into a battle between the three witches Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams). There are a few bits of new footage included in these here TV spots, but nothing mind-blowing. As a fan of Raimi’s I’m hoping for the best, but the film continues to look like Alice in Wonderland 2.
Hit the jump to watch the new TV spots. If you missed any of Steve’s set visit coverage, check out 30 things to know about the film plus a video blog, and his interviews with Sam Raimi, James Franco, Michelle Williams, Zach Braff, and Joey King. Oz the Great and Powerful opens in 3D on March 8th.
