This is until he meets three witches: Theodora (Mila Kunis), represents the queen of the West; Evanora (Rachel Weisz) is the queen of the East, and finally the beautiful Glinda (Michelle Williams), who plays the good witch. All three witches are endowed with extraordinary powers, and we will be able to witness magical battles within the film, with breathtaking special effects. Since, according to a prophecy, a great and powerful wizard should have arrived in Oz, and given his poor skill in administering what are the magical arts, the witches are not entirely convinced that the long-awaited wizard is the young Oscar. and initially, just like in Kansas, they give it little credibility. Despite the little trust they have in him, the boy finds himself involved in the conflicts between the inhabitants of the kingdom of Oz, which have plagued the country for a long time now and are very hard and heavy clashes. The boy, with his strength alone, must be able to distinguish the good from the bad of the fairytale world of Oz, in which there are goblins, gnomes, talking plants and flowers and also strange and evil flying beings.
