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.

‘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.

While there are, of course, four witches in the land of Oz, the Good Witch of the South never quite gets her due, so the triptych instead focuses on the remaining directions, beginning with the Wicked Witch of the West. 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. Just sayin’.
