Oz The Great and Powerful Arriving at Theaters and the 2013 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival

If you are a fan of Da Mouse you know how I love to use the word greatness because in the end isn’t that what we all strive for?  Isn’t it what we expect from the Walt Disney Company and others that we love and follow.  Indeed now the word great is being bolstered by the re-invention of a classic story, the Wizard of Oz.  Set to arrive in theaters on March 8, 2013 Oz The Great And Powerful brings the world of Oz to life with James Franco playing the man who must become the great and powerful wizard.  Keen you are if you noticed that March is a great time for flowers and namely it marks the beginning of the 2013 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival whose theme will naturally coincide and promote the live action film.  In case you aren’t sure why you should be excited for the movie just see the 2nd official trailer embedded below.  Trust me its good.  And as for the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival tie-in?  You can expect an “interactive play area” with “carnival games in a circus-themed area,” along with the “Land of Oz Play Area” featuring Oz’s crashed hot-air balloon.  But of course there will be flowers and exotic plants that will create an inspired, “Oz Movie Garden.”  Things are shaping up to be pretty good in March and we’ll have to wait just a little bit longer to see whether they will be, you know, great!
