The great and powerful book
Evanora | Oz Wiki | FANDOM powered by WikiaWhen it comes to adapting the wonderful world of Oz, Hollywood is, admittedly and regrettably, in a bit of a bind. Frank Baum's mythology is treading on the memories of millions of fans. The film is such a massive piece of film iconography that it has become the definitive version of this tale, and outstripped the Baum book itself. The outcry — "How dare you remake The Wizard of Oz! Yet Baum's Oz mythology didn't begin and end with Dorothy. He wrote 17 Oz books 18 if you count "The Royal Book of Oz," but you shouldn't, because it was written by Ruth Plumly Thompson in all, and they're marvelously weird, violent, and enchanting.

Sign in. A frustrated circus magician from Kansas is transported to a magical land called Oz, where he will have to fulfill a prophecy to become the king, and release the land from the Wicked Witches using his great but fake powers. Oscar Diggs James Franco , a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz. At first he thinks he's hit the jackpot-fame and fortune are his for the taking. That all changes, however, when 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 of Oz but into a better man as well.
Evanora is a main character, and the main later secondary antagonist in the movie " Oz: The Great and Powerful. She is played by Rachel Weisz. Once Theodora and Oscar Diggs arrive in the Emerald City , Theodora's sister Evanora appears in the throne rooom, seemingly relieved that the wizard has returned to help them stop the Wicked Witch's reign of terror. Evanora then asks Oscar to join her later on for a tour of the palace. As Oscar leaves the room, Evanora scolds her sister for bringing "that oaf" to Emerald City and letting him sit on the throne. Theodora tries to defend Oscar, believing that Oscar is really the wizard who will save them. Evanora scoffs, voicing her opinion that Oscar could have been an imposter sent by the Wicked Witch and then accuses her sister, Theodora of being in league with the witch and of being wicked herself.

By Robbie Collin. PG cert, min. Oz The Great and Powerful is the story of a huckster who swindles an entire kingdom, so perhaps we should allow for a certain degree of salesmanship in the title. He is hailed as the wizard of legend who will bring peace to the kingdom, and two bonny witches Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz send him down the Yellow Brick Road to bring a dangerous rebel to heel. That rebel, however, is the white witch Glinda, played by Michelle Williams in a smart performance slyly garlanded with Garlandisms.
