USA Today is reporting that Victor Fleming’s 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz will be re-released in IMAX 3D theaters this September. The release will be for a limited time and will proceed the film’s release on Blu-ray 3D this October.
In this film based on the popular L. Frank Baum stories, Dorothy and her dog Toto are caught in a tornado’s path and somehow end up in the land of Oz. Here she meets some memorable friends and foes in her journey to meet the Wizard of Oz who everyone says can help her return home and possibly grant her new friends their goals of a brain, heart and courage. The Wizard of Oz stars Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr, Jack Haley, Billie Burke, and Margaret Hamilton and, after three quarters of a century, remains one of the most well-known works of cinema across the world.
Set for a one-week run beginning September 20, The Wizard of Oz will then arrive as a five-disc box set (which includes a disc playable on 3D televisions) on October 1.
