Wicket Witch of the East

The Wicked Witch of the East

The Wicked Witch of the East is the main antagonist in Benny, Leo and Johnny's Adventures with the Lion of Oz. She is bent on ruling over the entire land of Oz, but is prevented from total control by the Flower of Oz. The Witch tricks Lion and the Fantasy Adventure team into finding the flower for her. She is defeated and vows revenge. Unfortunately, she is never seen or heard from since because unseen and unknown to our heroes, she was crushed by Dorothy Gale's house when Dorothy and Toto appeared in Oz at the end of the film.

In the Disney prequel, Oz the Great and Powerful, she started out as Evanora, the former advisor to the original King of Oz, whose murder she has committed prior to the events of the film, framing his daughter Glinda for the murder. Being a Wicked Witch, she has a hideous form which she hides by wearing a necklace that gives her the appearance of a young woman. She deceives Oscar by framing Glinda for the King's murder and telling Oscar that Glinda is the Wicked Witch rather than herself. Also, she's played by Rachel Weisz.
