The film, directed by Victor Fleming, starred Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr, Jack Haley, Billie Burke, and Margaret Hamilton. The title has now been officially announced and received a press release. This is no longer a rumor, as I had previously reported. This has received a new restoration which has been discussed here (taken from the press release).
Using state of the art technology, a new 8K 16bit scan of the original Technicolor camera negative became the basis for the 4K UHD scan. The process was overseen by MPI colorist Janet Wilson, who has overseen every remaster of The Wizard of Oz for the past 20 years.
Tech specs for the release include 2160p video in the original 1.37:1 aspect ratio with HDR10 and Dolby Vision forms of High Dynamic Range. The audio format and configuration have not yet been detailed. The film is now available for pre-order on 4K UHD Blu-ray over at Amazon. The 4K release (in both forms) will come as a “combo pack” with a Blu-ray Disc and a digital code (copy) of the film included. The release will not only be coming out as a standard 4K but it will also be getting a 4K Steelbook which will be a Best Buy Exclusive (pictured below).
