We’re off to watch the Blu-Ray, the wonderful Blu-Ray of Oz. Sam Raimi hit some high notes this year with a prequel to the classic Wizard of Oz film, and even though it may have been lacking some substance, it was a visual thrill of note.
If you’re keen to own the film, here’s what you can expect to find lurking on the discs of said movie. Just don’t splash it with water, or it might melt.
The Blu-Ray version comes packed with the following features:
- The Magic of “Oz The Great and Powerful” (Second Screen Experience): An interactive experience, that includes pop up maps and features for viewers who are internet connected and happen to carry a tablet device with them when they watch movies at home.
- The Enchanting Characters and Creatures of Oz
- The Sounds of Magical Oz
- Sleight of Hand: Zach Braff Puppet Theater
- Mariah Carey Music Video
- My Journey in Oz by James Franco
- Mr. Elfman’s Musical Concoctions
- China Girl and the Suspension of Disbelief
- Before Your Very Eyes: From Kansas to Oz
- Mila’s Metamorphosis
- Walt Disney and the Road to Oz
The DVD version will include the Bloopers and the “Road to Oz” featurette, and that’s about it. Upgrade already!
