The anticipated Wizard of OZ prequel, Oz the Great and Powerful, hits cinemas next month.
There's no scarecrow, tin man or Dorothy in Spider-Man director Sam Raimi's Land of Oz. No ruby slippers or Toto, too.
But there's James Franco as Oscar Diggs, a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, who is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz.
Upon arrival in the magical realm he thinks he's hit the jackpot-fame and fortune are his for the taking. But then 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 but into a better man as well.
Thanks to Disney we have 5 prize packs to give away, each includes a double pass for the movie, an Oz iPhone 4/4s case and an Oz T-shirt.
Disney's Oz the Great and Powerful opens in New Zealand theatres on March 7. More about the movie www.disneymovie.co.nz
