The Good Witch of the South, commonly named Glinda, is a fictional character in the Land of Oz created by American author L. Frank Baum. She is the most powerful sorceress of Oz, ruler of the Quadling Country south of the Emerald City, and protector of Princess Ozma.
Disneyâ€™s fantastical adventure â€œOz The Great and Powerful,â€ directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baumâ€™s beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks heâ€™s hit the jackpotâ€”fame and fortune are his for the takingâ€”that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyoneâ€™s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuityâ€”and even a bit of wizardryâ€”Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.
