Walt Disney Studios has released four new character posters for "Oz The Great and Powerful."
The upcoming film stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Zach Braff.
The new film, directed by Sam Raimi, is an imagined tale of the origins of the classic L. Frank Baum character -- the Wizard of Oz.
James plays Oz in the film, a character described by Walt Disney Studios as, "a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics."
After he's swept away from Kansas to Oz, he meets three witches -- Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams).
The film opens on March 8, 2013.
