New poster for Oz The Great And Powerful

Sam Raimi's exploration of the origins of The Wizard Of Oz is getting closer. Meet the wicked witch to prove it...

The Disney publicity department may have had one or two other things on its plate over the past day or so, but there’s also the small matter of some upcoming films to promote. As such, here’s the first in a collection of posters that are heading our way for next year’s Oz The Great And Powerful.

The film is being directed by Sam Raimi, and features in its cast James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and, of course, Bruce Campbell. And it’s the origin story, effectively, of The Wizard Of Oz.

The film is due for release next March, and this first new poster gives us a first glimpse at the stick-thin wicked witch. Expect more posters in the next week or two…
