It's always refreshing when movie studios take a fresh approach to an old story, which seems to be the case with Disney's Wizard of Oz remake 'Oz The Great and Powerful.'

Rich with fictional creatures and vibrant, fantastical landscapes, this Wizard of Oz remake uses the land of Oz that we know and love as the setting for an entirely new setting. Instead of Dorothy being whisked away from her home in Kansas, James Franco plays Oscar Diggs, a small time circus magician. Diggs is tasked with figuring out who is to be trusted and who is evil. On his journey he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams.)

This Wizard of Oz remake will certainly expose a whole new generation to the wonderful, yet mysterious world of Oz. Stats for Reinvented Fantastical Films Trending: Older & Mild
