Oz The Great & Powerful: Travel by Bubble Clip

I can remember my mother’s excitement the first time we watched The Wizard of Oz together when I was a small child.

The film occupied a special place in her heart, and in turn, I grew to love the magic that accompanied the click-click of two sparkling ruby slippers, too.

With the nostalgia that I feel for The Wizard of Oz still permeating some of my warmest memories, I am really looking forward to Disney’s new film, Oz The Great and Powerful (starring James Franco and Michelle Williams), which opens in theaters on March 8th.

If you want to learn a little more about the story and characters behind Oz The Great and Powerful, you can visit the official site, or follow the movie on Twitter & Facebook. For an extra-special glimpse at one of most gorgeous scenes from the film, watch the clip below.

Now, who wouldn’t love to travel by bubble—really?

When I showed my 3-year-old, Evan, this clip, he immediately wanted to blow bubbles. As the iridescent bubbles we blew drifted then drooped around us, he asked me what I thought it would feel like to float inside a bubble.

I told him I wasn’t sure, that I thought it would feel pretty exhilarating, and then I asked him what he thought it would feel like.

“I think it would feel like… magic,” he said.

Me too.
