To commemorate the 80th Anniversary of one of the most beloved movies of all time, Warner Bros. staged a series of screenings of the Wizard of Oz in theaters around the country earlier this year. Now word on the street has it that a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray edition is in the works and slated for release this summer.
Several sources have cited July or the July-August time frame but there has been no official word from Warner on when a 4K version will be released on disc and how it will be packaged.
It’s reasonable to expect that the studio will celebrate the milestone with something special as it has for past anniversaries, including the 70th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition and 75th Anniversary Collector’s Edition (including a 3D version). We also know that an 8K scan of the film exists.
