Oz The Great And Powerful Trailer (2013) (by FilmsActuTrailers)
Oh. Huh. Wow. This could be good.
“The character that we’ve set up is, he’s not a bad guy, it’s just that, I guess because of his life circumstances — he grew up on a farm in Kansas, his father, it was very hard — so he does everything he can to succeed,” Franco says in the video.
The prequel is based on characters created by L. Frank Baum in his series of 14 books — the first of which was published in 1900. Franco apparently has read them all.
