“Oz, the Great and Powerful” coming to DVD/Blue Ray

0oz

 

On June 11th, “Oz the Great and Powerful” will be released on DVD and Blue Ray. I know this film had an either “love it or hate it” vibe, even in my own household. Two of us liked it, two of us didn’t! For those of you on the “must have” side, here are the details!

Oz is coming out in a 3D Blue Ray/Digital copy as well as a Blue Ray/DVD combo deal.

Again, June 11th is the release date, but you may also pre-order and reserve your copy through Disney ahead of time.

The release will also have MANY Bonus Features, including:
