3D 'Wizard of Oz' is coming to DVD
Next fall, there will be no place like home — provided one’s home is equipped with a 3-D television.
Warner Bros. announced today that a new 3-D conversion of The Wizard of Oz is coming to DVD and Blu-ray in 2013. The release is part of the studio’s 90th anniversary celebration; a special 100 film DVD collection and 50 film Blu-ray collection will also be released in honor of this milestone. Additionally, the studio has put together a pair of documentaries — Tales from the Warner Bros. Lot and The Warner Bros. Lot Tour, which gives viewers a virtual version of the tour given at Warner’s Burbank headquarters.
The Wizard of Oz first hit theaters in 1939. In 2009, a four-disc 70th anniversary edition of the film was released on Blu-Ray; it included a variety of production documentaries, outtakes, and still galleries, but only two dimensions.
