Take Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz and add a sprinkling of Disney magic and what do you get? Why, it’s the wonderful wizard of Oz. New pictures from Disney’s epic movie Oz: The Great and Powerful (*new trailer alert* - scroll down to watch!) which will be released on 8 March next year have landed and we’re absolutely loving seeing some of our favourite big screen Hollywood actresses with a fairytale makeover.
A prequel to both the novel and the Judy Garland all-singing-all-dancing bonanza that is The Wizard of Oz, Disney’s latest venture see James Franco as Oscar Diggs arriving in Oz from Kansas as a small-time circus magician who battles good and evil to become the all powerful Wizard. Along the way he meets Glinda, the Good Witch of the North played by Michelle Williams and Wicked Witch of the East Evanora (Rachel Weisz) with Mila Kunis as westside Witch Theodora .
We think Michelle Williams looks oh-so-beautiful in her good witch getup. From her flowing blonde locks to the off-the-shoulder gown (nipped in waist, full skirt, check!) she is every bit the Disney princess. Seeing her all dolled up in such fantastical fashion got us thinking about our other big screen heroines with a whisp of witch about them. How about Charlize Theron as the evil Queen in Snow White and the Huntsman or Michelle Pfeiffer in Stardust? Tilda Swinton made for an icy White Witch in The Chronicles of Narnia while Cate Blanchett’s Galadriel in Lord of the Rings was positively enchanting.
You might have noticed that these gals are all blonde bombshells but in Oz, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz take one for team brunette joining the ranks of Kristen Stewart who played Snow White and Anne Hathaway in The Princess Diaries.
Move over munchkins, these snaps have certainly given us some inspiration for next year’s Halloween costume but which witch will be clicking her ruby slippers all the way home and who is the fairest of them all? Check out our gallery and see for yourselves…
