A poster appears for Sam Raimi’s The Great And Powerful Oz…

This is an odd one, we all heard that this was coming but there’s been next to no chatter and now this…

We know that Sam Raimi is starting an OZ franchise and that James Franco and Mila Kunis are the stars – Franco is OZ by all accounts – and that this will lead up to the events in the original Wizard of Oz movies, a prequel of sorts (will they remake the original or count it as part of this new story? What about Return to Oz? Aghhhhhh!). That’s all we know.
But from the look of this poster, we could be in for something really special… the Oz movies, to me, should be dreamy and hauting… hopefully this is the direction they are heading.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
