Mila Kunis: Playing 'Oz: The Great & Powerful's' Wicked Witch Of The West Was 'Incredibly Scary'

Mila Kunis had her fears about taking on the role of Theodora – The Wicked Witch of the West – in “Oz: The Great and Powerful,” but she loved every second of making the “The Wizard of Oz” of prequel.

“It was great. It’s an amazing movie to be a part of,” she told Access Hollywood at CinemaCon 2012 in Las Vegas, but said taking on the iconic role was “incredibly scary.”

The Sam Raimi-directed project also stars James Franco (Oz) and Michelle Williams (Glinda), who Mila loved working with.

“It was a phenomenal cast,” she beamed. “So, if you’re ever going to take on a risk, you couldn’t ask for a better group of people to do it with.”

The 28-year-old beauty said fashion fanatics will love the movie’s elaborate costumes.

“It really was a stunning wardrobe, it’s all corseted… [it was] truly, truly beautiful,” she added.

“Oz: The Great and Powerful” is slated to hit theaters in March 2013.
