The OZ 75th anniversary celebrations are in full swing! The IMAX 3D edition of the film premiered last week at the newly refurbished Grauman’s Chinese Theater. That’s fitting because it was the site of the film’s big LA premiere in 1939. As Judy Garland and Oz fans alike trek to IMAX theaters around the country to see the new 3D version (which is getting stellar reviews), they’re also waiting for the release of the film (and the 3D version) on new DVD & Blu-ray sets.
Along with the film, many new products are coming out throughout the next few months. Some are already available. There are many, many more items, books, trinkets, collectibles, figurines, dolls – you name it! – coming out. Your best resource is Sharon Ray’s Curiozity Corner blog. She has the inside track on all – and I mean ALL – of the OZ-related products coming up. If you’re a serious OZ collector, you can’t afford not to bookmark her blog and sign up for regular updates. It’s amazing!
