Walt Disney Home Entertainment has officially announced and detailed the 2D and 3D Blu-ray Combo Pack releases of their fantasy film Oz The Great and Powerful. The film stars James Franco as the title character Oz, Rachel Weisz as Evanora, Michelle Williams as Glinda, and Mila Kunis as Theodora. Oz The Great and Powerful is directed by Sam Raimi and will be available online and in stores beginning on June 11th.
Oz The Great and Powerful imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot–fame and fortune are his for the taking–that is until he meets three witches 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 of Oz but into a better man as well.
Oz the Great and Powerful was released into theaters in March of 2013 and grossed over $486 million in worldwide box office to date.
