The first image for Sam Raimi’s new film Oz: The Great and Powerful has surfaced.
The film, starring James Franco, is the origin story of how the wizard first came to Oz. As a prequel to L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz, the movie shows the young illusionists escape from a traveling circus.

The movie is slated for release March 8th, 2013 and also stars Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Abigail Breslin.
