Oz The Great And Powerful: Characters Ranked By Likability

The movie Oz The Great And Powerful introduces a lot of engaging characters. Some are more likable than others and it’s no mystery why. Before Dorothy ever set foot in the Land of Oz, a whole other story unfolded. Oz The Great And Powerful portrays a fun and exciting rendition of the events that took place in Oz with so many characters that make the story genial.

These characters range from flying baboons to elegant witches and fans find some of these characters insufferable and others exceptional. Check out this list of characters from the film ranked by likeability.

Out of all the characters, Evanora (Rachel Weisz) has to be the worst character for her manipulation and treachery. While many fans have been under the impression that The Wicked Witch of The West is the most conniving villain in the kingdom, they soon learn that, initially, there is one person who is pulling the strings.

In order to begin her reign of terror, Evanora manipulated Theodora into believing that their other sister was up to no good. She also provoked Theodora into turning evil and had no qualms in killing innocents. There was not one ounce of goodness in her.

Actress Mila Kunis displays her talent by portraying both Theodora and her transformed evil side, The Wicked Witch of the West. After getting her heart broken by Oz, The Wicked Witch of the West decides to get her revenge and attacks the small kingdom of the Quadlings.

With no goodness left, the audience soon sees her try to kill her other sister, Glinda, out of spite and jealousy. Her drastic change and cruelest intentions make her a very unlikable character in the movie.

Although there are moments where the audience can sympathize with China Girl, especially when the audience learns of her backstory, the fans couldn’t really take to her character.

China Girl may have helped Glinda get her magic back, but, other that, she didn’t exactly bring much to the plot. She would just throw tantrums to get what she wanted and would just be used as moral support. The writers could have utilized her character a bit better.
