Latest Oz the Great and Powerful Trailer Examines the Good, the Bad, and the Wicked

"You don't know much about witches, do you?"
One of the most highly-anticipated movies of 2013 is also, arguably, the one surrounded by most question marks: Oz The Great and Powerful. Director Sam Raimi certainly knows how to deliver a quality product regardless of high expectations after directing three highly successful (albeit occasionally polarizing) Spider-Man movies, however, his last feature, 2009's Drag Me to Hell, was embraced by horror movie fans but didn't exactly set box office records.
Further complicating matters is Oz The Great and Powerful's relationship to The Wizard of Oz. While the title and plot suggest the movie is a prequel to The Wizard of Oz, Disney does not hold the rights to the 1939 classic, but does own the rights to L. Frank Baum's Land of Oz books. Oz The Great and Powerful follows struggling magician Oscar Diggs (James Franco) as he mysteriously travels to the enchanted land of Oz and meets three witches Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams) who aren't convinced of his greatness.
