I have to say I was really impressed with this movie. It was simply well cast and well written. I honestly didn't know how this movie would turn out or if would do, The Wizard of Oz any justice. It certainly did. From beginning to end this movie was great. Although the beginning went a bit slow, but it picked right up. Both my kids absolutely loved it and my husband was impressed as well. James Franco did an amazing job as the Wonderful Wizard.
Filled with not only a great story letting us viewers know just how the great Wizard came to be, it's also filled with lots of humor to keep everyone entertained as well. Let me just say Finley won our entire household over being our favorite character with his witty and hilarious personality. I was also glad to see that Theodora (played by Mila Kunis) the evil witch, was not always bad. How they wrote that was pretty awesome.
This is definitely a great movie that needs to be watched and also a perfect way to introduce your kiddos to the amazing movie, The Wizard of Oz in case they haven't seen it yet. Oz The Great and Powerful is out on blu-ray and DVD today, June 11th, 2013!
