The Wizard of Oz received five Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, and captured two Oscars® - Best Song (Over the Rainbow) and Best Original Score - plus a special award for Outstanding Juvenile Performance by Judy Garland. The film was an overwhelmingly popular and critical success upon its initial release and repeated its ability to captivate audiences when MGM reissued the film in 1949 and 1955.

Released to wide acclaim and recognition, and with a long-lasting legacy in the film world, The Wizard of Oz owns a place in multiple AFI lists, including: 100 Years... 100 Movies (#6); 100 Years... 100 Thrills (#43); 100 Years... 100 Heroes and Villains (#4); 100 Years... 100 Songs (#1); 100 Years... 100 Movie Quotes (#4); and Greatest Movie Musicals (#3).

In 1989 The Wizard of Oz was part of the inaugural group of films selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for being culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant.

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 colourist Janet Wilson, who has overseen every remaster of The Wizard of Oz for the past 20 years.

The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc of The Wizard of Oz will feature Dolby Vision HDR that dramatically expands the colour palette and contrast range and uses dynamic metadata to automatically optimize the picture for every screen - frame by frame.

The Wizard of Oz is remastered and reissued on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 28th October 2019 from Warner Home Video.
