The fantastical family adventure Oz, The Great and Powerful debuts on Disney Blu-ray, Digital Download on iTunes, 3D Blu-ray and DVD on 1st July 2013. Audiences are invited to step into the enchanted and vibrant world of Oz to discover the story of small-time circus magician, Oscar Diggs, as he embarks on a quest to restore unity and peace to the land and become the wizard of Oz.

The epic journey is all the more vivid in high definition Disney Blu-ray as Oz, The Great and Powerful comes to life with spectacular picture and enhanced sound. A captivating night in for the whole family to enjoy is complete with a sensational variety of never-before-seen bonus features which immerse audiences further into the magical world of Oz. These include James Franco's personal story of his journey to the land of Oz, produced and directed by the star himself; Mila Kunis' makeup metamorphosis hosted by Academy Award®-winning makeup artist Howard Berger; a back-stage journey through each of the visual effects process that brought Finlay, the comedic flying monkey performed by Zach Braff and China Girl (played by Joey King) to life; Walt Disney's fascination with Oz, hilarious bloopers and much more.

Based on the books of Frank L Baum author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the film is directed by Sam Raimi who helmed the record-crushing Spider-Man trilogy, and produced by Joe Roth who fashioned Disney's Alice in Wonderland. Oz, The Great and Powerful boasts a stellar cast that includes Academy Award nominee James Franco (127 Hours); Golden Globe nominee Mila Kunis (Black Swan); Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener); three-time Oscar-nominated actress Michelle Williams (Brokeback Mountain, My Week with Marilyn) and three-time Golden Globe nominee Zach Braff (Scrubs).

When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), 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 (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 a great wizard but into a better man as well.
