It has been several months since my family and I saw the first preview for the upcoming movie starring James Franco, Oz The Great and Powerful. If you know me, or really anyone in my immediate family than you know we all adore sci-fi and fantasy. This movie is a MUST see and I’d really like to get us all to the theater. I think, even though Amelia is only 4 months old, she would be fine as long as I have ear muffs for her because she is really well behaved. My gut says she’d sleep through part of it and be glued to the screen for the other part.
It’s not that I am of the generation that grew up with the original Wizard of Oz because I’m not. But the movie is a classic. All generations know of it and most people have watched it at least once. There is a scene when Dorothy sees her Auntie Em and then the Wicked Witch’s face in the looking glass and it still freaks me out to this day.
James Franco stars along side Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and the Flying Monkey who you will recognize has Zach Braff‘s voice. The film is meant to be a prequel of the original Wizard of Oz and shares the story of how the great wizard came to be.
In honor of this visually stunning flick I have put together some printables for you and yours.

And in case you missed another great fantasy movie opening last week. March 1st saw the release of Brian Singer’s much anticipated Jack the Giant Slayer starring Nicholas Hoult and Ewan McGregor. The classic tale has been updated for today’s sensibilities and the introduction of the giants Fee, Fye, Foe, Fumm and Fallon. Jack of course being a young farmhand fighting for a kingdom, but also for the love of a princess.
