What's it about? Oz, the Great and Powerful is a prequel, drawing more from the other Oz books than the classic film, telling the story of how a small-town carnival magician named Oscar Zoroaster Phadrig Isaac Norman Henkle Emmanuel Ambroise Diggs Oz for short, played by James Franco finds himself swept away in his hot air balloon to the magical land of Oz, where he reluctantly becomes the reigning Wizard. Along the way, he meets three young witches; Theodora Mila Kunis , a naive and innocent girl who only wants peace in the land; her older sister, the elegant and regal advisor to the late king and acting regent Evanora Rachel Weisz ; and the king's daughter, Glinda Michelle Williams.

Evanora is a main character, and the main later secondary antagonist in the movie " Oz: The Great and Powerful. She is played by Rachel Weisz. Once Theodora and Oscar Diggs arrive in the Emerald City , Theodora's sister Evanora appears in the throne rooom, seemingly relieved that the wizard has returned to help them stop the Wicked Witch's reign of terror. Evanora then asks Oscar to join her later on for a tour of the palace. As Oscar leaves the room, Evanora scolds her sister for bringing "that oaf" to Emerald City and letting him sit on the throne.
Sign in. A frustrated circus magician from Kansas is transported to a magical land called Oz, where he will have to fulfill a prophecy to become the king, and release the land from the Wicked Witches using his great but fake powers. Oscar Diggs James Franco , a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz. At first he thinks he's hit the jackpot-fame and fortune are his for the taking. That all changes, however, when 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.
When it comes to adapting the wonderful world of Oz, Hollywood is, admittedly and regrettably, in a bit of a bind. Frank Baum's mythology is treading on the memories of millions of fans. The film is such a massive piece of film iconography that it has become the definitive version of this tale, and outstripped the Baum book itself. The outcry — "How dare you remake The Wizard of Oz! Yet Baum's Oz mythology didn't begin and end with Dorothy. He wrote 17 Oz books 18 if you count "The Royal Book of Oz," but you shouldn't, because it was written by Ruth Plumly Thompson in all, and they're marvelously weird, violent, and enchanting. Baum styled himself as "Royal Historian of Oz," trying to maintain the illusion Oz was a real place, and that he received the stories by telegraph by Dorothy and Princess Ozma themselves.
