'Oz, The Great and Powerful': A deep dive into Sam Raimi's new trailer

(Page 4 of 7)

Evanora goes above and beyond to make Oz feel at home. “The royal treasure of Oz,” she says, showing him riches only Aladdin could imagine. “It belongs to you.” Talk about giving away the milk the free. Can you blame the guy for going all Scrooge McDuck in his new fortune?

Oh, wait. There’s a catch. First, Oz has to defeat the Wicked Witch. Which old witch? The Wicked Witch. Wait, so who’s the Wicked Witch? Is Evanora siccing Oz on goody-goody Glinda for her own Machiavellian reasons? Or is there possibly a fourth witch in this tale? (Doubtful, yes, but there technically are four witches in the poster.) Oz and his bellhop monkey hit the yellow brick road and eventually encounter Michelle Williams’ Glinda. She certainly doesn’t seem wicked. She calls him the great wizard from Kansas, and flattery will get you everywhere with men who struggle with self-doubt. While Glinda is eager for Oz to set things right, he collects another road companion, a porcelain doll whose cracked leg he mends.
