I am on the hunt for some Ruby Red Slippers! That is what every gal should wear when attending the Red Carpet Premier of OZ The Great and Powerful, isn’t it?
Yes… did you read that? Little ‘ole Lori has been invited to walk the Yellow Brick Road with some seriously fantastic bloggers and… GULP – possibly some celebrities? I am leaving on a Jet Plane and landing in a world of wonder in February!
Now, I don’t know about you, but I have been SO excited to see this movie since I heard it was hitting theaters March 8, 2013! I LOVED the Wizard of Oz as a little girl and can not wait to see what this updated film has to offer! I mean, just read a little about it below and tell me YOU are not super excited too?!!?
Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. 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 the great and powerful wizard but into a better man as well.
“Oz The Great and Powerful” is produced by Joe Roth, with a screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire (credit not final). Grant Curtis, Palak Patel, Philip Steuer and Josh Donen are serving as executive producers. “Oz The Great and Powerful” opens in U.S. theaters on March 8, 2013.
Looks pretty good, right?
I will be traveling February 13 through the 15th and Disney has so much in store for me! I will be staying at the – are you sitting down? – SAME hotel that The Bachelorette’s Ashley and J.P. got married in last month, The Langham Huntington Hotel!! Don’t think for a second that I am not sharing every photo of that with you guys!
In addition – just GUESS where the premier is? The FAMOUS El Capitain Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard! This theater, built in 1926, has featured so many great Hollywood Films that I am sure the walls will talk! I can not wait! I actually have to pinch myself, guys!
And here is the MOST AWESOMEST PART – well, all of the parts are awesome but really, what little stay at home mom gets to sit down and interview James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, Zach Braff, Joey King and Director Sam Raimi????
Yea… I know!! Send questions now and I will try to ask them for you when I can actually form words around these awesome stars!
And to throw in more excitement, I’ll be screaming Wreck-It Ralph in anticipation of it’s in-home DVD release on March 5, 2013!
Oh my head is spinning with excitement! I need a dress, shoes, jewelry and to be pinched! Anyone know a dressmaker I can call? LOL
