Disney’s big budget live action adventure story, Oz the Great and Powerful, had a long and bountiful run at the box office, earning $80 million in its first weekend in the US and going on to earn $482 million worldwide. Since it spent a long while in theaters, the film is getting a fairly quick Blu-ray, DVD, digital download, and On Demand turnaround, hitting the market on June 11.


Set in the land of Oz, the film stars James Franco as Oscar, a two-bit musician who ends up embarking on a fantasy adventure of epic proportions, meeting three different witches, played by Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, and Michelle Williams. If you haven’t caught the film, give the incredible opening credits a shot. If a look at the old timey world of Oz aren’t enough to pique your interest, maybe the knowledge that Spider-man franchise director Sam Raimi helmed Oz The Great and Powerful will give you a little more confidence.

Walt Disney Home Entertainment usually puts together some spectacular sets, but this time the company is making fans choose between a cheaper DVD set with very few extras or an extensive Blu-ray set offering a slew of music videos. Some of these are your typical behind-the-scenes featurettes. However, a couple of them should be downright weird, including this video by Mariah Carey and a documentary called “My Journey in Oz” by James Franco—and if you’ve read the actor’s fiction, you know where I am going with this. I will say that Oz The Great and Powerful is a stunning enough film that the viewing experience should be enhanced with a Blu-ray copy, and all the extras don’t hurt either. You can check out the full list, below, or pre-order a copy over at Amazon.
