‘Oz the Great and Powerful’ New Hi-Res Still, Behind-the-Scenes Images

Traveling by bubble is not for the feint of heart if this newly released still from Oz the Great and Powerful is to be believed. The image features Glinda (Michelle Williams) in the forefront and at peace in her travel bubble while Oscar Diggs/Oz (James Franco) seems a tad less enthused about the mode of travel. It’s just the latest in a series of hi-res stills from the film provided to us by Walt Disney Studios.

In addition, we have received a couple of behind-the-scenes images featuring James Franco with director Sam Raimi as well as a wicked peek of a scene highlighting the developing relationship between Diggs and Theodora (Mila Kunis).
