The “Great and Powerful” Danny Elfman has recorded his latest score for Disney’s lavish prequel Oz: The Great and Powerful, starring James Franco as the Wizard, with Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz as the ladies of Oz.

The film’s director, Sam Raimi, and Danny Elfman are frequent collaborators, as the four-time Oscar nominee also previously scored Darkman, A Simple Plan and the first two Spider-Man films for Raimi (as well as providing the “March of the Dead” for Army of Darkness and making a cameo appearance in The Gift). Oz is the first Elfman feature score released by Intrada, a co-production with the Disney label, and features 66 minutes of his music. The following video contains some fascinating “making of’ footage with some scoring session material starting at the 10:05 mark. Enjoy!
