Since its premiere August 25, 1939, The Wizard of Oz has become a beloved, American classic. The film, which stars Judy Garland as a young Kansas farm girl who is whisked away by a twister to the land of OZ, achieved mild success upon its original release in theatres, but it was its television premiere that made the film a household name. Seventy-five years later, the Technicolor wonder has cemented its status as a classic among American films.
For the 75th anniversary of the film, Warner Bros. will partner with IMAX in a week-long IMAX 3D run in 400 IMAX theaters beginning September 20. The Blu-ray release, which will hit shelves October 1, has been digitally remastered and was scanned in 8K before being rotoscoped and converted from the original Technicolor negative to 3D.
