Returning to OzCelebrating the release of Sam Raimi's 'Oz: The Great and Powerful', the first major film to be set in L Frank Baum's magical fantasy world for nearly thirty years, the BFI is hosting Returning to Oz, a season of cinematic visions around the theme of Oz. Films will include 'The Wizard of Oz', starring Judy Garland; 'Wiz' a Motown interpretation with Michael Jackson and Diana Ross; and 'The Patchwork Girl of Oz', scripted by Baum himself but substantially different from the book. 'Oz: The Great and Powerful' is an upcoming Disney fantasy adventure film that takes inspiration from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz but is set before the film 'The Wizard of Oz'.

Competition:
LondonTown.com has teamed up with the BFI to offer two lucky readers a set of family tickets to the event, plus a copy of a new Puffin book, 'Oz The Great and Powerful', which is based on the new Disney movie.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer the following question:Who stars as Oz in Raimi's 'Oz: The Great and Powerful'?

Tickets are valid for one movie showing of the season. Please send your answer to competitions@londontown.com with 'Returning to Oz' in the subject header by midday on Wednesday 6th March 2013. Please also include your full name, contact number and postal address within the email. First two names out of the hat win. Good luck!
