Disc 01 The Magic of Oz the Great and Powerful (HD): Disney's Second Screen experience -- an interactive behind-the-scenes track of sorts -- offers iPad owners (second generation or newer) the opportunity to sync a Wi-Fi enabled Blu-ray player with their device and access content and materials not available on the disc itself.

Walt Disney and the Road to Oz (HD, 10 minutes): The studio and Uncle Walt's history with Oz, which traces back to the 1930s (when Snow White hinted at the success of feature fantasy), Disney's acquisition of the rights to fourteen Oz books, an abandoned 1950s musical adaptation (The Rainbow Road to Oz), and other milestones on the long and winding road to Oz the Great and Powerful.

My Journey in Oz, by James Franco (HD, 22 minutes): This sorta-day-in-the-life video journal is more of a Franco-hosted production documentary than anything else, and that's perfectly fine. Franco does everything from discussing the film to interviewing Sam Raimi to going behind-the-scenes to reveal how practical and visual effects were used to realize Oz.

China Girl and the Suspension of Disbelief (HD, 5 minutes): Oz's porcelain doll springs to life by way of on-set marionettes, computer wizardry and the voice performance of young actress Joey King.

Before Your Very Eyes: From Kansas to Oz (HD, 11 minutes): The design, development and creation of the lands of Oz the Great and Powerful, from the film's visual aesthetic to its costumes, sets, environments, locations and grand vistas.

Mila's Metamorphosis (HD, 8 minutes): Raimi and company bring the Wicked Witch to sinister, cackling life with prosthetics that simultaneously accentuate, sharpen and mask the actress's facial features.

Mr. Elfman's Musical Concoctions (HD, 7 minutes): Composer Danny Elfman and the film's score.
Bloopers (HD, 5 minutes): Franco, Braff, Kunis and the rest of the cast ham it up.
