Are you wearing your ruby red slippers, my pretty? You might want to have them on when you watch the new trailer for Oz: The Great and Powerful, which stars British Oscar winner Rachel Weisz along with James Franco, Michelle Williams and Mila Kunis.

The fantasy film, set to open March 8, imagines the beginnings of Wizard of Oz author L. Frank Baum’s famous tale. Franco plays the title character, a young, minor-league circus magician who finds himself in the Land of Oz, where he encounters three witches (Weisz, Willams and Kunis).

The film is directed by Sam Raimi (Spider-Man).
