Watch new TV spot for Oz The Great and Powerful

Sam Raimi will soon be taking us to the Emerald City in Oz The Great and Powerful, and you can watch a brand new TV spot for the adventure here, with a look at the film's three witches...

Due for release in March 2013, Oz The Great and Powerful stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Zach Braff.

Here's the official synopsis and you can scroll down to see the poster in full;

Disney's fantastical adventure
Oz The Great and Powerful, directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved character, the Wizard of Oz.

When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he's hit the jackpot-fame and fortune are his for the taking-that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting.

Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity-and even a bit of wizardry-Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.
