Since I got back from the premiere of Oz the Great and Powerful, which opens in theaters March 8, I have been asked two questions over and over: Is the movie good? and, Is the movie too scary for my child?
I will have a full review of the movie coming soon, so parents can be armed with information about what content might be too scary for their kids. What I can say now, is that I recommend the movie for ages 7-8 and up. Of course, it always depends on the kid. My 5-year-old will be fine with this movie, and she'll probably see it. However, I'm not so sure about my 7-year-old. She's just a little more sensitive. The movie review is embargoed for now, but follow me on Twitter or Facebook to find out as soon as the review is posted.
We did have a chance to sit down with director Sam Raimi after the world premiere of the movie, and he talks about what he did to make sure the movie 1. lives up to the legacy and 2. is perfect for families.
