It’s somewhat strange to watch Sam Raimi’s Oz The Great and Powerful as a direct prequel to The Wizard of Oz - particularly in regard to the Witches. If the classic story tells us anything it’s that one witch is good and floats around in bubbles, one witch is green and hangs with creepy flying monkeys, and the final witch gets crushed to death by a house. Knowing these fates puts a funny spin on the characters as portrayed by Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz, but the film still fully respects their importance to the legendary tale.

I recently had the chance to sit down with two of the three actresses during a press event in Los Angeles and talk with them about their roles in the new film. Watch my interview with Michelle Williams to hear her talk about approaching a character who is considered pure good, and Mila Kunis talk about her long working relationship with James Franco and what it was like stepping into the world of Oz.
