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.

‘Wreck-It Ralph’ on Digital Download Weeks Before Blu-ray

'Wreck-It Ralph' on Blu-RayWalt Disney Studios Home Entertainment today announced that Wreck-it Ralph from Walt Disney Animation Studios would be available for digital download on February 12, nearly one month before the 3D Blu-ray and its variants are available to purchase on March 5.

According to the announcement, the download (available as both high definition and standard definition formats), will include all of the aforementioned Blu-ray bonus features with exception to the Disney Intermission featuring Chris Hardwick.

This move marks a first for the company, although the move is not unprecedented as Disney was one of the first to release Blu-ray discs weeks before their DVD-only counterparts and is indicative of the company moving closer to the Disney Movies Anywhere initiative.
