The Wizard of Oz To Get 3D Blu-ray Makeover

By October 4, 2012

Follow me on:

Yes, the headline says it all! As a part of its 90-anniversary in 2013 Warner Bros is going to release the 1939 technicolor classic, The Wizard of Oz, on Blu-ray (after a brief theatrical run) in 3D.

For those 3D detractors that may be throwing up their arms in disgust over the thought of tampering with this classic film, keep in mind that the way the film was shot, using interior sound stages, bright stage lighting, and in technicolor, the cues are all there that could aid in a successful conversion from 2D to 3D.

No word on who is going to do (or has done) the actual 2D-to-3D conversion, but if the proper care and time is (was) taken by skilled stereographers this could definitely be worth a look, if not a must-see. What do you think?

For more details on this, and other, Blu-ray surprises (including a new studio logo) Warner Brothers has in store for its 90-anniversary in 2013, read the report from MovieWeb.
