First Official Image for <i>Oz The Great And Powerful</i> Released

Disney has released the first official image of Sam Raimi’s Oz The Great And Powerful. Within the image, all the classic iconography is present: tornadoes, the yellow brick road, the Emerald City and Oscar Diggs’ multi-colored hot air balloon. As the title suggests, Dorothy will be absent from this film, instead focusing on small-time magician (James Franco) who finds himself in the middle of a bitter battle between the three Witches of Oz (Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams).

Disney will be promoting and releasing more details about the film next week at Comic-Con in San Diego. The film is slated for release on March 8, 2013.
