Much like the Wizard of Oz himself, James Franco really has no idea how to control a hot air balloon.

Franco made a grand entrance to Jimmy Kimmel Live, floating in by hot air balloon. Well, really the balloon was already tied down and they just lowered it a couple of feet so Franco could step out of it. The balloon, of course, was emblazoned with the title of Franco’s new movie, Oz The Great and Powerful, and its release date (March 8). 

Here’s hoping that Franco’s hilarious grandmother, who he introduced on the show, makes it in the film. According to Franco, when she visited the set she was dressed as “one of the townspeople in Glinda’s kingdom.”

His grandmother joked, “All of my jealous friends were sure I was a munchkin.”
