Today, filming on Oz: The Great and Powerful officially gets underway at Raleigh Michigan Studios in Pontiac, MI.
The Disney movie, which is a prequel to the Wizard of Oz, stars James Franco, Mila Kunis and Michelle Williams.
One of our Twitter followers, @ADDCollection, let us know that there had already been a sighting of Mila Kunis last Thursday, tweeting, “Mila Kunis was at #Starbucks in Royal Oak today.” Mila’s been keeping busy- she just wrapped Ted with Mark Wahlberg in Boston last Sunday, then headed to NYC to promote Friends With Benefits before going to straight to Michigan to start Oz.
On July 14, Mila’s co-star Abigail Spencer tweeted the first photo from the studio (which you can see above) with the hashtag “This is happening.”
We’ve heard from multiple sources that most of the movie will be shot in the studio, where they’ve been building elaborate sets for weeks, with little filming on location. But, that doesn’t mean that the the cast won’t be out and about in Michigan during their free time so be on the look out for the movie’s stars and be sure to let us know if you spot them!
