'Oz: The Great and Powerful' (March 8)

Short Story:
We know the story of Dorothy and Toto. We know the story of Wicked. But what about the story behind the wizard himself? Oz: The Great and Powerful takes us on that journey, revealing how small-time magician Oscar Diggs (James Franco) landed the job for which he is now famous. Also starring Mila Kunis as the Wicked Witch of the West and Michelle Williams as Glinda.

What They're Saying:
"I suspect that even [kids] will be fidgeting during the last 45 minutes; like so many other recent tentpoles, the film is stuffed with three endings too many." -- Entertainment Weekly

Rotten Tomatoes Rating:

Good for Kids?
No childhood is complete without many repeat viewings of The Wizard of Oz. But according to Common Sense Media, even this PG-rated prequel contains "dark surrealism, wicked witches and ominous imagery [that] could make this film quite scary for young kids."
