Are you enchanted by this new trailer for Oz the Great and Powerful?

Oz the Great and Powerful proper header

Just yesterday a full poster triptych was revealed for OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL, and now a new trailer has come along to showcase Sam Raimi's Oz brought fully to life.  Full of vibrant colors and explosive effects and more than a few nods to THE WIZARD OF OZ, the trailer pulls no punches with what viewers should expect - magic, munchkins, anachronistic humor, curious creatures, and a big budget put to impressive use.

I'd be curious to ask the creator of EVIL DEAD his thoughts on the course his career has taken over the years, as OZ seems to present one of the biggest departures yet from his past filmography.  Though you can certainly see his horror roots in those wicked flying monkeys...

But enough from me - here's the trailer.  View it below, and then strike back below that to with what you think!

OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL arrives to whisk you away on March 8th, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: That definitely sounds like Rachel Weisz saying "the treasure is yours only after you defeat the Wicked Witch." I had thus far assumed that she would be the one to become the Wicked Witch, which means I'm now officially confused. Also, what's this prophecy business all about?
