First Poster for Sam Raimi's 'Oz The Great and Powerful'

Sam Raimi’s “Oz The Great and Powerful” releases its first poster, complete with ominous tornadoes. The Disney film, which re-imagines L. Frank Baum’s Wizard of Oz character before he was great and powerful (through James Franco, alongside Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Zach Braff), won’t descend into theaters until March 2013. Check out the synopsis below; Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire penned the script. It sounds fun:

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.
