Release Date: October 29, 2019
Considering that Warner Home Video marked the 70th and 75th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz with deluxe boxed sets, fans assumed that the same would happen for the 80th anniversary. Instead, the label released a modest set that featured the premiere of the film in the new 4K Ultra HD format. After all of those previous HD versions, it was assumed that the 4K format wouldn’t make much of a difference but – it does! Watching the film in 4K on a 4K TV is like going from VHS to Blu-ray. It’s dazzling.
The only boxed set of the 80th-anniversary release was in the UK (see below). It was also released in the U.S. in a steel case set which was a bit more deluxe than the main edition (see below).
The extras are the same (minus the 3D version) as the 75th Anniversary edition.
