Courtesy of Walt Disney Studios Australia, we have a new clip from Disney’s upcoming Oz the Great and Powerful. The clip — titled ‘Bananas’ — features a little male bonding between Oscar Diggs/The Wizard (James Franco) and Finley the flying monkey (voiced by Zach Braff) as they venture along the yellow brick road in their quest to rid Oz of the Wicked Witch of the West so that Diggs can claim the sea of treasures of the Emerald City as well as ‘appropriately’ pay Finley for his assist in the act. Diggs also gives off the vibe that he’s a bit of a love ’em and leave ’em type — surely that can’t can’t come back to bite him in the end.
Also released earlier today is this behind-the-scenes featurette courtesy of Walt Disney Studios UK in which James Franco, Zach Braff, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams all sing the praises of director Sam Raimi. Williams in particular seems in awe of the fact that an actual yellow brick road exists, ironically a feat that would have been near impossible to achieve on film prior to the introduction of CGI (couldn’t resist).
