While the original "Fantasia" from 6 decades earlier still holds up better than this update, it's not without brief sparks of amazement.

This project stands up to the original Fantasia, with a new group of inspired musical compositions and brilliant animation accompaniments. All the pieces here are strong, but Rhapsody in Blue's modern art take on city life and Shostakovich's furious toy soldier ballad stand out here.

There is some really great music here, but the animation (in most segments) just didn't do anything for me. The celebrity guest appearances that show up between the segments are unnecessary and feel like a waste of time. I only like the 'Rhapsody in Blue', 'Pines of Rome' and 'Firebird Suite' parts.

Although I think the original has the better arrangement, this Fantasia sequel is none-the-less still impressive. The Firebird Suite is magestic while me personal favorite is Rhapsody in Blue. Fans of music and animation will rejoice.

Less artistic and a whole lot less imagination was thrown into this belated Disney sequel. The only reason they released one this late was to make a little extra cash.

Though this does not top the original, it's on the same level for me. The original Fantasia ran at 2 hours long, while this runs at a mere 75 minutes, but it's a really breathtaking 75 minutes. It features all new animated sequences to Bethoveen's Fifth Symphony, The Pines of Rome, Rhapsody in Blue, Dmitri Shostakovich's Piano Concerto 2, Carnival of the Animals, Pomp and Circumstance and The Firebird, along with the original Fantasia animated sequence The Sorceror's Apprentice. All in all, a wonderful experience, and a must see for anyone who loves the old "Fantasia", classical music, and/or animation at its finest! Oh, and wait until you see the "Firebird Suite" finale.... it will blow you away!
