Sam Raimi moved from low-buget chainsaw mutilation to superhero superstar director pretty swiftly. His latest however, will be more family-friendly affair as he brings us the early adventures of Oz: The Great & Powerful.

James Franco takes the title role of small-town circus magician who is whisked away from Kansas in the prequel to classic fantasy The Wizard Of Oz. The film will also show how his character aligns with three friendly witches, whose jealousy-ridden and soured relationship eventually turns one of their number into the character we come to know as The Wicked Witch Of The North!

Following the first two posters we debuted the last couple of weeks (a third also expected this week), we have some stunning new stills from the film set for cinemas 8th March 2013.

Oz: The Great & Powerful is based on L. Frank Baum’s beloved novel and co-stars Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis, Zach Braff, »
