Warner Bros. off to see ‘Wizard’

Warner Home Video will release two new special editions of “The Wizard of Oz” on Oct. 25 that include the first new restoration and new bonus features in 12 years. The restoration utilizes Warner’s proprietary digital “Ultra-Resolution” technology process used on recent releases of titles such as last year’s “Gone With the Wind.” The new restoration has been created with high-def presentation in mind. Although Warner has not named “Wizard” to be one of the first batch of high-def DVD releases this fall when it plans to introduce the first releases on one of two incompatible high-def disc formats called HD DVD, Warner Home Video senior VP classic catalog George Feltenstein said it will likely be among the first waves of movies released in high-def. The score and soundtrack have also been enhanced and remastered for a new 5.1 channel stereo audio track, creating more separation from the two microphones used to record some of the music, in addition to the option of the original mono track.
