‘Oz the Great and Powerful’ Triptych Gives First Look at Wicked Witch of the West

'Oz the Great and Powerful' Triptych Panel #1 - Wicked Witch of the WestYahoo! Movies has exclusively debuted the first of three panels featuring the witches featured in Saim Raimi’s Oz the Great and Powerful set to open in theaters nationwide on March 8, 2013.

Y! teases the figure represented in the piece is unknown, but we can’t help but notice a striking resemblance to Mila Kunis — who portrays Theodora — moreso than Rachel Weisz (Evanora) and certainly not Michelle Williams who plays the good witch (of the North) Glinda.
