James Franco And Zach Braff Talk Oz
Plus the great and powerful Michelle Williams

submit to reddit

Sam Raimi's Disney blockbuster takes him, and his stellar cast, back to the Oz of L. Frank Baum's stories and Victor Fleming's 1939 classic. This time, though, the flying monkeys have sharper nippers, the munchkins aren't allowed to sing and there's more CG spectacle than you can shake a ruby slipper at. We popped down to chat with James Franco (wizard), Michelle Williams (witch) Zach Braff (monkey) about the movie. NB Franco and Braff may have been better pals before Empire collared them than when we left them. Erm, sorry about that.
