Great and Powerful Oz Poster Artwork
Disney has released promotional artwork for next years Great and Powerful Oz movie directed by Sam Raimi (Spider-man trilogy) and staring James Franco. Was having a hard time wrapping my head around Disney's Oz and one of MGM's signature movies - The Wizard of Oz. Disney's story is a prequel. Anyway, the lush images on the posters have kind of peaked my interest. Here's a sample. Hopefully there will be no creepy flying monkeys

Hopefully your interest is piqued as well.
I'm willing to give Sam Raimi the benefit of the doubt, but two years from filming to release and an early March release don't suggest a huge amount of faith in it by Disney.
My interest is definitely piqued, but I really just have such a negative stigma associated with prequels at this point that I'm going to remain only cautiously optimistic. I'm trying to think of even one time where I've seen a prequel film that actually lives up to its predecessor (though I am hoping that both The Hobbit and Monsters University manage to get it right).
Rich Ross inherited John Carter. Now Alan Horn walks into Oz (another $200 million dollar movie). Hopefully the results are a little better. Can't a Disney Studios Chairman get a break.....
