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.

A Dramatic Improvement Over the Original

Disney's Fantasia was released in 1940, and though it was unpopular upon initial release, today it is considered one of Disney's best films. Personally, I found it to be immensely overrated, and downright lazy. And yet, I have found Fantasia 2000, the much anticipated sequel, to be entertaining and unique, and a massive improvement on the lacking original.

Fantasia 2000, like the 1940 original, has no single plot, but is made up of a series of animated segments with classical music scoring each segment. I will cover each segment in my review.

The opening segment is Beethoven's Symphony No. 5. This is basically just a bunch of abstract images put to music. As I was watching this segment, I was not only uninterested in the "events" onscreen, but I began to dread the rest of the ...

Review - Fantasia/2000 (1999)

After almost sixty years, audiences were finally able to experience the wonders of “Fantasia” all over again. Walt Disney’s project was finally continued with “Fantasia/2000.”

You can tell while watching this version of the classic concept that it was not made just for money. They really put time and effort into making it just as good as the original. While I don’t think it really does measure up, each piece is just as wondrous and beautiful as before.

“Pomp and Circumstance” brought back what “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” which incidentally was included, did for “Fantasia,” while “Rhapsody in Blue” used simplicity to its fullest to bring its masterpiece to life. “Firebird Suite – 1919,” the finale piece, is easily the most vivid of the group, bringing a very beautiful arrangement to...
