That ‘Oz The Great And Powerful’ Poster Looks Familiar

Yesterday, we brought you a look at the complete three-part poster for “Oz the Great and Powerful,” and earlier today, a new trailer for the Sam Raimi-directed fantasy debut. (You can watch it here.)

But what really has people’s attention today is something that a Reddit user pointed out over on /r/movies. It turns out that Disney is really looking to recapture the enormous audience that came out to see their other revisionist fairy tale, “Alice in Wonderland.” One quick look at the two posters leaves little doubt that they’re trying to spark some connection between to the two movies.

Check out the side-by-side after the jump!

The two films were always going to bear some kind of resemblance. Robert Stromberg, who also worked on “Avatar,” served as production designer for both Disney productions, and there are certainly shades of his overall aesthetic in both Oz and Wonderland.

But it’s when you take a gander at the posters for the two films, that you begin to see how similar Disney wants them to appear.
