If you believe the words of a 12-year-old--which you can't always, because sometimes it turns out they're just making fun of you and DO NOT actually think you look real cool in your scarf--Sam Raimi's Wizard of Oz prequel, Oz: The Great and Powerful, will include the same "holy shit, now it's color in Oz!" gimmick as the original film. Speaking to TeenSpot, Oz cast member and Ramona & Beezus star Joey King told the internet's coolest hangout spot for teenz:

"We're doing the same thing as the first Wizard of Oz, we're making it black and white in the beginning and then (it gets) colorful when we enter the Land of Oz. It's also going to be a 3D movie; I'm so excited about that."

I already can't wait for the instant that "wow!" moment of 1939 hits a modern audience, and the theater erupts in a unified, "Good, 'cause I was gonna say, I didn't pay to see some old-ass black and white shit, dude." It will be pretty magical, in 3D.
