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, 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, Evanora and Glinda, 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.

When small-time magician Oscar Diggs pulls one flimflam too many, he finds  himself hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz where he must somehow transform  himself into the great and powerful Wizard—and just maybe into a better man as  well.
