A new clip from Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful has surfaced, with this one courtesy of Walt Disney Studios New Zealand and titled ‘Argument Over Oz.’ The clip features those wacky sister witches Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Theodora (Mila Kunis) as they debate over the credibility of the newly dubbed Wizard, Oscar Diggs (James Franco) and whether he is able to save the land from the tyranny of the mysterious Wicked Witch of the West. Evanora also begins to question Theodora’s loyalty, fearing/accusing her of pledging allegiances to the Wicked Witch of the West, which elicits quite an interesting response.

'Oz the Great and Powerful' Triptych Middle PanelCourtesy 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.

‘Monsters University’ Director Hints at Boo Tribute, Talks Prequel Timeline

'Monsters University' Teaser PosterEarlier this month, we had the opportunity to sit down with Monsters University director Dan Scanlon and producer Kori Rae, along with John Goodman, for a few minutes as part of a roundtable at the Disney/Pixar presentation at the 110th American International Toy Fair in New York City.

Following up on a tip I had received the day before, I took the opportunity to explore what overlap — if any — we might see between Monsters University and the original Monsters Inc. film. Unfortunately Scanlon nearly skirted the question altogether: ‘Well I don’t want to say that, I think you should wait and see. I will say that it’s teeing up to the original film nicely.’

WATCH: ‘Oz the Great and Powerful’ Super Bowl XLVII Ad

'Oz the Great and Powerful' Triptych Middle PanelDuring the 2013 Super Bowl big game, Walt Disney Studios shared an extended sneak peek at its upcoming film, Oz the Great and Powerful.

Disney’s fantastical adventure Oz The Great and Powerful, directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful wizard but into a better man as well.
