Oz the Great and Powerful on Blu-Ray Combo Pack

I received a copy of Oz the Great and Powerful for review purposes only. All opinions are 100% my own.

Oz Box Art

It seems like just yesterday I was invited to attend the red carpet premier of Oz the Great and Powerful at Hollywood’s famous El Capitan Theater. During our time in California we were fortunate enough to have the chance to interview all of the main character actors as well as the director Sam Rami. If you have a few minutes, they are a fun read.

The film is directed by Sam Raimi who helmed the record-crushing “Spider-Man” trilogy, and produced by Joe Roth who fashioned Disney’s billion dollar-plus earning “Alice in Wonderland.” “Oz The Great and Powerful” boasts a stellar cast that includes Academy Award nominee James Franco (“127 Hours”) as Oscar Diggs, the predestined wizard; Golden Globe nominee Mila Kunis (“Black Swan”) as the tormented young witch Theodora; Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz (“The Constant Gardener”) as Theodora’s older sister, Evanora, the witch who rules over the Emerald City; and three-time Oscar-nominated actress Michelle Williams (“Brokeback Mountain,” “Blue Valentine,” “My Week with Marilyn”) as Glinda, the Good Witch.

My review of the film centers on whether it is child friendly, but you can also read my overall impression.
