The teaser trailer for Evil Dead and Spider-Man trilogy director Sam Raimi’s Oz the Great and Powerful (which Disney premiered at this year’s Comic-Con) overflows with vibrant colors, zany creatures, and picturesque 3D trickery, but it does little to counter a longtime assertion – namely, that the Mouse House’s semi-prequel to The Wizard of Oz is an attempt to replicate the $uccess of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland by giving the same cinematic treatment to L. Frank Baum’s Oz literature (right down to the March release date).

A full-length trailer for Raimi’s Oz the Great and Powerful is now online, offering a better look at the film’s unique rendition of that land ‘somewhere over the rainbow’ (as envisioned by Alice production designer Robert Stromberg) and the human cast which includes James Franco – playing the young ‘wizard’ Oscar Diggs – as well as Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams as the three witches wrestling to control the fate of Oz (Theodora, Evanora and Glinda, respectively).
