Oz The Great And Powerful Gets A Flying Monkey-Filled New Poster

For what it was, the last Oz The Great And Powerful poster was actually fairly serene. Yes, the center of the image was the Wicked Witch of the West and that tree stump sure did look spooky, but they were surrounded by waterfalls, soft beams of light and small creeks with flower beds beside them. For the latest one-sheet they've gone in a different direction - and by that I mean they tossed the kitchen sink at it.

Disney has released a brand new poster for the Sam Raimi-directed film, and for this one peaceful scenery has been replaced by chaos, with flying monkeys, giant teapots, what I can only assume is some kind of fairy, a little girl made of porcelain, and a flaming hot air balloon. Check it out below and see it full size over at Yahoo!

See what I mean?

Due out out March 8th, the new film goes back to a time before The Wizard of Oz when a con man named Oscar Diggs (James Franco) first flew into the world of Oz. After managing to convince everyone that he's a great wizard he is treated like royalty - only the three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams) don't quite believe he is who he says he is. The movie also co-stars Zach Braff, Abigail Spencer, Joey King, Martin Klebba, Ted Rami, Bill Cobbs, and Tony Cox. For more about Oz The Great and Powerful head over to our Blend Film Database.
