Shireen on the Scene: Oz The Great and Powerful
Some people wish for internal good looks. Others for charm to ooze out their pores. Sometimes, wishes do come true. But mere mortals like James Franco can't grant wishes or can they? Tonight the stars of OZ tell Shireen which wishes they'd ask the wizard to grant.
JAMES FRANCO: "Here we fill in the blanks how he got to the world of Oz and how he became the wizard."
In "Oz The Great and Powerful" we see the wiz get his shot at greatness, and witches get their chance at goodness.
While the movie does give us some background, it also pays homage to the original "Wizard Of Oz."
From the yellow brick road to munchkins who have the music in 'em..
There is plenty for fans of the original to love.
Once again at the end, our hapless wizard gives out gifts to his cohorts. So we asked the stars which wish they would ask the wizard to grant.
ZACH BRAF: "Probably the ability to fly. I'll take that."
That makes sense.
ZACH BRAF: "Even though my monkey character can fly, my dreams are always flying thru the clouds."
James says he's learned the most important lesson of the film: Family.
JAMES FRANCO: "If I got that or more appreciation for the people close to me, that would be good."
Rachel weiss wants a more talented tongue.
RACHEL WEISZ: "It would be lovely to be multi-lingual to be able to speak every single language on the planet."
And Mila Kunis, who's become a paparazzi magnet since she started dating Ashton Kutcher, had a very simple, one-word answer.
