Michelle Williams and Mila Kunis Talk Playing Witches in New Oz Movie
Posted on July 15, 2012
Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis and director Sam Raimi are at Comic Con promoting their upcoming film Oz: The Great and Powerful. Michelle and Mila play younger versions of witches in The Wizard of Oz. They spoke with MTV News' Josh Horowitz about the characters they play. Mila explains, "I play a character named Theodora who is also a witch. She has a sister, Evanora, who too is a witch [played by] Rachel Weisz, who is fantastic. So you have Glinda, Theodora and Evanora. One is good, two are not so good.... One is really bad."
Michelle plays Glinda the Good and she was asked how much she relied on the performance of the original actress who played Glinda in the classic movie. Michelle replies, "I think I would hope to be inspired by it. Our story pre-figures The Wizard of Oz — that's who my character turns into, that's her in her most crystallized perfect form. I thought it was an opportunity to see who she might have been when she was younger, when she was at the precipice of her powers and wasn't fully realized into the Glinda that we know and love from the classic film."
James Franco plays Oz in the film which look pretty interesting. Take a look:
