All right, it’s official.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has just announced that they’ll release The Wizard of Oz on 4K Ultra HD on 10/29, in honor of the film’s 80th anniversary.

The original Technicolor camera negative has been scanned in 8K and graded for high dynamic range in both HDR10 and Dolby Vision (the disc will include both).

Per the studio’s press release, “The process was supervised by MPI colorist Janet Wilson, who has overseen ever remaster of The Wizard of Oz for the past 20 years.” SRP for the release is $41.99. The package will include both the 4K and a Blu-ray.

All right, we have a quick late breaking news update for you today.

We’ve gotten a flurry of release information from our retail sources this afternoon, including both U.S. and international sources.

Based on that, we now predict the following U.S. street dates for upcoming Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD titles.

Keep in mind, these titles are not yet officially announced, but are likely to be in the coming weeks.

These are in addition to those titles already announced by the studios.

If Amazon pre-order links are available, we’ve added them to the titles (we expect more to go live soon).

We’ll post further updates here on The Bits, in our 4K Ultra HD Release List here at the site, and on our social media channels as new information comes in.

Stay tuned and have a great weekend!
