Beautiful, Original Take on Oz But Not for Your Youngest KIDS FIRST! Coming Attractions, www.kidsfirst.org

Oz.Great

The evergreen classic, Wizard of Oz gets a fresh new look in Disney’s new version,Oz The Great and Powerful starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams. Here, we have the tall tale about a circus magician, Oscar Diggs (James Franco), who dreams of becoming a great wizard. He sets off in a hot air balloon only to encounter a tornado that sweeps him away to the brilliantly enchanting 3D world of Oz. Seeing this as an opportunity to make something of himself, Oscar (aka Oz) convinces the good people that he is the great wizard they have been waiting for. Once he realizes that being the king of this great land is more work and less play, he has to decide whether or not to stay and protect the people that look up to him most, or continue in his ways of being a scammer.

KIDS FIRST! Film critic, 15-year-old Raven Devanney recently attended an advance screening and shares her review below.
