Judy Garland’s much-loved The Wizard of Oz is to be released in IMAX cinemas in 3D format.

To mark its 75th anniversary, the film has been digitally re-mastered and is due to be in cinemas from September 12.

The film, which was originally released in 1939, received five Academy Award nominations, winning Best Song (Over the Rainbow) and Best Original Score.

The Wizard of Oz is one of the most beloved films of all time and we are thrilled that our long-time partners at Warner Bros Pictures have made IMAX a part of this exciting milestone event,” said Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President of IMAX Corp.

“This film revolutionised the use of colour and special effects in cinema, and we're excited to add another 'first' - bringing this timeless classic to moviegoers ... through the power of IMAX 3D for the very first time.”

Meanwhile, the 75th anniversary edition of The Wizard of Oz will be available on Blu-ray and DVD from November 3.

Here's the trailer and it looks amazing!
