One Week Until Oz the Great and Powerful!

So. Excited.

Before we get into all of the Oz the Great and Powerful news, I'd like to mention that L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is doing a weekly web-series called "Creating Kansas." New episodes will be uploaded to YouTube on Fridays, and you can check out the first one here.

The Wicked Witch of the West is gracing the cover of this week's issue of Entertainment Weekly, which hit shelves today. Read more about it here.

Some very cool set footage (called "B-roll footage") has been released, and it's definitely worth a looksie, I'd say. But, be warned, there are some potential spoilers present. You can watch the B-roll footage here.

A five-minute preview of the film with lots of new footage has been released. The only bad thing about it is... it's in German. But, there's not much dialogue here, so it's still enjoyable and the visuals are fantastic. Check that out here.

A fun new clip from the film has been released, which you can watch here!

You can watch a nice new TV spot for the movie here.

Several new hi-res stills from the film have been released, which you can check out here.

Fandango is offering some neat limited edition giftcards with Oz characters on them. Take a look at them here.

A ton of on-set interviews have been uploaded to YouTube, you can shuffle through them all at the specified links below...
Disney has added a bunch of Oz merchandise to this week, including mousepads, shirts, and posters. You can take a look at what they've got right here.

The Hollywood Reporter has done a fantastic write-up on the making of the movie, which you can check out here.

Exclusive Oz the Great and Powerful merchandise will be available at Disney theme parks soon! The exclusive line of merchandise will include t-shirts, Vinylmation figures, and iPhone cases. Read more about them over at the Disney Parks blog.

Speaking of Disney theme parks, Oz-inspired art is coming to Disneyland's Downtown Disney District! Read more about the artwork and the artist here.

That's it for this week. Next week's blog will feature my review of the film! As mentioned before, I got tickets to a Thursday night screening, so I am very excited about that. Let me know in the comments section if you're planning anything special for next weekend!

You accidentally credited Rachel Weisz also as 'Theodora'.

Can't say for certain I'll watch these clips with spoilers (some parts of the story I'm already figuring out and are obvious) but I hope your review next week isn't too spoiler-ish; I'm sure many others reading this blog may not be able to see this movie as soon as it opens, some may even see it later or wait till DVD/Blu-ray.
