Wizard of Oz IMAX 3D Trailer

Aw, I adore this film. One of the truly great cinema classics. But does it need a 3D upgrade? Not really. That said, we can't stop the powers that be and it's happening whether we want it to or not. As was announced a month ago, Victor Fleming's 1939 musical The Wizard of Oz will be getting re-released in IMAX 3D this September. In honor of the upcoming re-release, Warner Bros has debuted a full trailer for the musical. It's meant to be seen in 3D in the theater, but it's a charming reminder how wonderful this film still is (even in plain ole Technicolor 2D). As much as I don't want to see it in 3D, I love the way this ends. "Step forward!"

Watch the trailer for the IMAX 3D re-release of Victor Fleming's The Wizard of Oz, found on YouTube:

The Wizard of Oz, starring Judy Garland as Dorothy, Ray Bolger as The Scarecrow, Bert Lahr as the Lion, Jack Haley as the Tin Man, Billie Burke as Glinda and Margaret Hamilton as the Wicked Witch, will get its IMAX 3D re-release starting September 20th later this year. The musical will play in 400 IMAX theaters nationwide for one week before the 75th Anniversary Blu-Ray hits shelves after. Referring to the experience of seeing so much vibrant color on film at that time, IMAX CEO Greg Foster says, "that must have been an amazing experience to see it then, to be truly taken away to another world. That's what we'd like to do [with IMAX 3D]." I love Wizard of Oz, it's one of my all-time favorites, but I don't think I'll see it in 3D. Anyone?
