Meet the Wicked Witch of the West in New 'Oz' Poster

Sam Raimi’s Oz the Great and Powerful has been playfully withholding its greatest asset – namely, the terrifying Wicked Witch of the West. The last trailer ended with a hair-raising shot of the villain’s hand slamming down on a table, then dragging her vicious nails across the surface. 

Well, the curtain’s finally being pulled back, and it’s everything that you’d hoped it would be. 
 
Walt Disney Pictures is distributing this return trip to Oz, which tells a bit of a prequel story about a Kansas magician (James Franco) carried over the rainbow by a mysteriously powerful twister. The witch will look familiar, though you’ll see new faces in other key roles: Franco’s “wizard” eventually gets caught up in the fight for the future of Oz, and he’s assisted – we believe – by three witches played by Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz and Mila Kunis. That, we can get behind.

Oz the Great and Powerful will be in theaters in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D on March 8, 2013. What do you think of the witch?
