The Great and Powerful… Marketing Campaign… When a studio has millions of dollars to spend just on a single commercial’s airtime as a part of their advertising campaign, you know they think they have a hit on their hands. Did this commercial for Disney’s upcoming feature Oz the Great and Powerful make you want to rush out to the theater?
Or did you kind of think that maybe the towering classic upon which it’s based, a little film called The Wizard of Oz, probably didn’t actually need much updating?
We suppose this looks like a fun family adventure, but we’ll understand if your response to that mild assertion is “What were you talking about? Yeah, whatever, pass me more pita chips/crackers/sandwiches.”
