Oz The Great And Powerful

Posted: Updated:
"Oz The Great And Powerful" looks at the characters we didn't get to know too well in the original film. We meet the good, bad, and ugly witches, and learn how the wizard got his power. Or not.For his role as the wizard, James Franco learned to fake it, with the help of uber-magician Lance Burton.JAMES FRANCO: "He taught me more than made it in the film but yeah he taught me quite a bit."James spent two intense weeks with Lance learning the secret tricks of the trade. And our wannabee wizard wasn't the only student.Michelle Williams, who plays Glinda, picked up a couple of tricks.Great, i'm hungry.RACHEL WEISZ: "I didn't need to learn tricks, I have actual magic."Rachel Weiss didn't get any magic lessons, but that's fine with her.I'll keep my distance...and Mila Kunis spent the time constantly amazed.MILA KUNIS: "He was like 'I know you like magic so how about THIS!' and things would appear and I was like OMG how did this just happen in front of me."But the moral of the story isn't about smoke and mirrors or special effects. It's about family, right zach?ZACH BRAFF: "That's what wins in the end. It isn't special powers, it isn't magic. It's goodness."
