Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Among other things, Walt Disney was a man who was good at letting things spiral out of control -- usually to the enjoyment of the public for generations to come. In this case, it was a "Silly Symphony" featuring Mickey Mouse as the title character in Paul Dukas' "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" which eventually blossomed into Fantasia -- Disney's longest animated feature, which went from being a box-office bomb when it was released in 1940 to a widely recognized masterpiece decades later. It's not hard to see why; despite stunning, powerful animation that is unparalleled to this day, audiences in 1940 didn't know what to make of a feature cartoon with prancing centaurs, pirouetting nymphs, tutu'd hippos, and no story or narration. It wasn't until the psychedelic '60s that Fantasia began ascend to its current status, and the rise of increasingly thorough animation historical studies didn't hurt either. After decades of various alterations (including an ignominious shortened version, rescored sound, and new narration), a restored, nearly intact print of the original Fantasia was re-released in 1990 to critical and popular acclaim. Disney's original plan was to periodically re-release the movie, gradually replacing old segments with new music and animation, but its initial failure kept that dream from becoming reality. Work began on just such a sequel shortly after the 1990 restoration, which was eventually released in late 1999 as Fantasia 2000.

    Iconic and Beautiful - A must for every Disneyphile

    This is a classic of cinematic and animation historical importance. It is beautiful and fun. From Mickey "borrowing" the sorcerer's hat to the demon in the mountain, every single piece is iconic. If you've been to DisneyWorld's Hollywood Studios, you've see Fantasmic! and will recognize the characters from this movie. My personal favorite is the seeds turning to fairies and fairies ice skating to illustrate the seasons. Even if you hate classic music, you'll love the imagery and the seamless way the conductors and animators brought them together.

    An awesome collection of songs

    Since I am a big music lover, I decided to checck out this movie. I was extremely satisfying. My favorite song is Night on Bald Mountain. Walt Disney did a great job in asembling this movie.

    Why isn't Deems Taylor's voice on the DVD???

    Why isn't Deems Taylor's voice on the DVD? I don't get it. His voice was on the Laserdisc, and on the theatrical prints I saw in 1963 and 1972. The New Voice is considerably different, and Taylor's inflections were much more interesting and charming. I would be interested if anyone has inside knowledge on the reason for this unfortunate decision.
