1. Trailer clip - "Oz The Great and Powerful"
London, 1 March 2013
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Sam Raimi, director - on what he would change about himself:
(Reporter: "What would you change about yourself? And why?")
Raimi: "I think similar to Oz and maybe that's why it reverberated with me, my selfish nature. I am so blinded by greed or self satisfaction that I, like Oz, fail to see the beauty in life right before me, the love that's right there to take. That's really the important they are. I fail to recognize the worth of my friend or honor him in a way, my dutiful friends and my good friends, deserve to be honored. And so I am kind of like Oz in the first act without ever having gone through that transformation. So I guess a similar transformation, if there was ever a way for me to grow as a human being would be wonderful."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) Michelle Williams, actress - on what she would change about herself:
"What would I change about my own self? Oh gosh I have to pick one thing? Well something I have been slowly finessing, I've been trying to not be so hard on myself. But at the same time realize that some of that is necessary, some of it is useful and some of it strengthens me and then some of it is just abusive and lacerating, and so I have just been trying to ease up a little bit on the self criticism."
4. SOUNDBITE (English) James Franco, actor and Zach Braff, actor - on what they would like to change about themselves:
Braff: "I just want to be more like James Franco."
(Reporter: "And you?")
Braff: "I too want to be more like James Franco."
Franco: "I'm very happy, I'm very grateful. One of the new chapters of my life is that I have been teaching quite a bit and it's been very, very satisfying, it puts my energy in a different direction and I get to allow others to achieve some of their goals and so it's made my life even better."
