One of the greatest stories ever told first made it to film in 1939 when Judy Garland became Dorthy in the classic tale of 'The Wizard of Oz', and to this date remains on of the greatest films of all time.  Now Disney has just released the first trailer for their prequel to the story.

'Oz: The Great and Powerful' was directed by Sam Raimi who is responsible for the 'Spider-Man' trilogy, and stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, and Michelle Williams.

This movie, being a prequel, will show us how the Wizard of Oz becomes just that, and I would be willing to bet the studio is already making plans for the sequel.

This film has definitely caught my attention. I'm excited to see it when it hits theaters on March 8th 2013.
