'Oz The Great and Powerful' Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D Up for Pre-Order!

Posted Mon Apr 8, 2013 at 12:20 PM PDT by

Prepare to travel somewhere over the rainbow again on both Blu-ray formats later this year.

In an early announcement to retailers, 'Oz The Great and Powerful' appears to be in the works for Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D.

Disney's fantastical adventure 'Oz The Great and Powerful,' directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he's hit the jackpot -- fame and fortune are his for the taking -- that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity -- and even a bit of wizardry -- Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.

Specs, supplements, and a release date have not been revealed yet, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack and the Blu-ray 3D are both set at $44.99. A separate Blu-ray/Digital Copy combo pack without a DVD is also planned for a suggested list price of $39.99.
