Wizard Of Oz 75th Anniversary Gets An IMAX 3D Release


In honor of its 75th Anniversary, the Wizard of Oz is returing to the big screen in a big way on September 20th.

Warner Bros. is releasing Wizard of Oz in IMAX 3D for one week.

There will also be a 5-disc Blu-ray 3D collector’s edition debuting in October.

Wizard of Oz debuted in 1939 on a $2 million budget and at the time was not considered a success with onlya little above $3 million in sales.

Only when the movie began being televised in 1956 did it become the blockbuster we know of it as today.

Wizard of Oz was directed by Victor Fleming and starring Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr, Jack Haley, Billie Burke, Margaret Hamilton, Charley Grapewin, Clara Blandick, Pat Walshe, and Terry as Toto.

The 75th Anniversary will also see major promotions launched including a float at the 87th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
