Oz the Great and Powerful

Hall H never has any shortage of cool reveals, and this year’s Disney panel definitely delivered on that front. Among the treats they had to offer was the very first trailer for Sam Raimi‘s Oz: The Great and Powerful, a prequel to L. Frank Baum‘s Wizard of Oz. While it’s way too soon to judge the movie as a whole, I can say without hesitation that the footage so far looks utterly gorgeous.

The trailer showing was followed by a quick Q&A session featuring Raimi and two of his stars, Michelle Williams and Mila Kunis. Watch the new promo and read some choice quotes after the jump.

The panel kicked off with a supercut of Raimi’s previous films, though as Russ was quick to point out to me, Crimewave seemed to have been mysteriously omitted. Even so, it effectively whetted our appetites for the sumptuous Oz video to come. We don’t have that montage available to upload right now, unfortunately, so you’ll just have to imagine it to prep for the trailer below if you want to recreate our Con experience at home.
