Since Oz the Great and Powerful is an original prequel based on Baum’s first Oz book, it’s always nice to have the source material nice and fresh in your mind. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz tells the familiar tale of Dorothy Gale’s and her dog Toto’s fantastic journey to the land of Oz, but more importantly it lays out the details of the world of Oz which have inspired the new movie’s storyline about the land’s three warring witches.
For me, it was the special effects and 3D. If I had not see "OZ" in 3D, it would have been a bust for me.
The acting was okay, the story line was too sweet. I am used to murder mysteries but I was a "wizard of Oz" fan of the Judy Garland variety so I thought I would see how the wizard came to be the wizard. Totally not what I would have imagined had I not seen it.
Thank God for the special effects and "butter" on the popcorn.
@Maaz. Wicked doesn't follow the same timeline as this movie. So it would probably leave the average viewer more confused...?
So... no one should see wicked...?
You forgot one. How about watching "The Wiz" starring Michael Jackson and Diana Ross.

That's a neat ideal an OZ Party yummy-treats in all and catching up on seeing the Classic Wizard of OZ with legendary Actress Judy GARLAND. I get all misty eyes seeing Dorothy w/her pet Toto and friends Scarecrow, Tinman and the Cowardly Lion walk down the yellow brick road. So, looking forward to the pre-quel The Great and Powerful OZ on how everything started. cheers!!
