According to a listing on DisneyStore.com, Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful will be available to own on 3D Blu-ray beginning June 11, 2013. Although the listing itself is for the 2D edition, Amazon.com is accepting pre-orders for the 3D Blu-ray/digital copy edition as well as the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack.
Just ahead of tomorrow’s debut of Oz the Great and Powerful from Walt Disney Studios, its star James Franco received a star of his own today on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Hollywood, California. To commemorate the even, Walt Disney Studios has provided us with several images from the event.
Franco was joined by friend Seth Rogen who spoke on his behalf as well as Franco’s brother, Dave, and mother, Betsy. Also in attendance were Oz the Great and Powerful director Sam Raimi, producer Joe Roth and co-star Joey King (voice of China Girl).
We have just a few more days before Oz the Great and Powerful debuts in theaters nationwide on March 8, 2013 and so far we’ve seen plenty of images of the mystical land and its inhabitants. Today, Walt Disney Studios has decided to share with us stills of a couple of characters from Oscar Digg/Oz’s world in Kansas, where he performs in the traveling Baum Brothers Circus. While we have a photo of the sideshow Strongman (portrayed by Tim Holmes), we also have a photo of a young lady who bears a striking resemblance to actress Joey King. How’s that? You know how the classic 1939 film The Wizard of Oz ends (the book itself does not share the same ending in the slightest), so it’s only fair that you know just how this prequel begins. It’s already been shared that Zach Braff, who voices Finley, also serves as Oz’s assistant in Kansas. In fact, there may be even another friendly face or two in the opening scenes, so you’ll want to keep an eye out.
In addition to the final component of the triptych, Walt Disney Studios has also provided us with several new stills from its film, Oz the Great and Powerful, which debuts in theaters nationwide on March 8, 2013.
The stills, released in anticipation of the new trailer tomorrow, give us a closer look at Oscar Diggs (the Wizard), Theodora, Evanora, Glinda as well as the flying monkey Finley (voiced by Zach Braff) and the China Girl (voiced by Joey King). The new stills have been added to the beginning of our gallery of images from the film below:
