Fantasia 2000

Initially released to IMAX theaters at the crescendo of millennial fever and 60 years after the original Fantasia, Fantasia 2000 was meant to revitalize Walt Disney's goal of a constantly evolving film, with new segments replacing old ones with each re-release. Only "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" remains, with seven new shorts. Angular, abstracted butterfly-like shapes fly through the air in Beethoven's "Symphony No. 5"; computer-animated whales take flight in Respighi's "Pines of Rome"; Al Hirschfeld's caricatures of New York life come alive in George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue"; Hans Christian Andersen's "The Steadfast Tin Soldier" is retold with computer animation against Dmitri Shostakovich's "Piano Concerto No. 2, Allegro, Opus 102"; frantic flamingos try to stop their yo-yoing comrade in Camille Saint-Saëns' "Carnival of the Animals, Finale"; Donald and Daisy Duck play Noah and his wife trying to manage the ark to Sir Edward Elgar's "Pomp and Circumstance"; and the cycle of life, death, and rebirth are celebrated in Stravinsky's "Firebird Suite." ~ Emru Townsend
