The Costume And Makeup Magic Behind ‘Oz The Great And Powerful’ (VIDEO)

Get to know the characters from Oz The Great and Powerful
There’s some serious movie magic going on behind the scenes of Disney’s upcoming film Oz The Great and Powerful.

To create a completely unique and immersive feel for Oz, director Sam Raimi employed two of Hollywood’s most respected creatives — costume designer Gary Jones and makeup artist Vivian Baker. Together the pair helped transform James Franco, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, Mila Kunis and the rest of the cast for this highly-anticipated movie.

Both industry vets, Jones and Baker know a thing or two about using costumes and makeup to render some of Hollywood’s most-recognizable faces … well, unrecognizable for various roles. Jones has created the costumes for hit movies such as Spider-Man 2, Valentine’s Day and Georgia Rule, while Baker has handled makeup duties for Spider-Man 3 and Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.

And now the two have joined their creative forces to transport readers to the newly-imagined Emerald City in Oz The Great and Powerful.

From the inspiration to the costumes and the makeup, Jones and Baker give us a behind-the-scenes look at how they were able to bring the film’s characters to life in the video above.

Oz The Great and Powerful opens in theaters everywhere March 8th.
