    "Fantasia 2000" matches the original film's captivating visuals and wonderful music selections. It does hardly look, though, like a "Fantasia 2000", it is more like a "Fantasia 1940 2". The animations are certainly upgraded, of course, but there is little use of contemporary art in terms of both film themes and music. Disney in 1999 was much more than idiotic humour, but the filmmakers"Fantasia 2000" matches the original film's captivating visuals and wonderful music selections.

Disney in 1999 was much more than idiotic humour, but the filmmakers chose not to bring innovative art in the film, unlike Walt Disney attempted with the 1940 film. In "Fantasia 2000" modern story themes and modern art music were absent. Even Stravinsky's "Firebird" feels extremely conventional, compared to his "Rite of Spring" in the 1940 film. Generally, this 1999 picture reminds of early Disney's commitment to unite music and sound, but feels more like an animation gala rather than a mystical experience like its predecessor. Expand

    I am a classical man, who enjoys the music overpowering the dialogue. Although 'Fantasia/2000' is far less magnificent and artful than 'Fantasia', the modernized animation creates a wider range of classical music, that couldn't have worked in 'Fantasia'. I employ and advise Disney to be more sophisticated with its animation now, like here, or then with the original 'Fantasia'.

    Like the original, this move combines beautiful music with Disney-approved, beautiful visuals, in the forms of mini-stories. It's a different experience from most movies you will watch, and everyone should definitely experience this movie and the even-better original Fantasia. As an avid and devoted musician, I recommend his movie very much, even just for the music!

    One of the last great Disney films that was inspired to use some evidence of using drawings instead of computers to create the image. Much like its predecessor, it captures the link between sound and sight perfectly and adds humour. Good range of musical numbers that are widely known, and the stories that accompany them will be memorable to any viewer.

  1. Although it's less novel and feisty than the original "Fantasia" of 1940, this collection of music-filled animations is highly entertaining at times.

    The rest of these animated sequences...depend on gimmickry, cuteness, or facile ideology, and don't come close to demonstrating the complex relationship between sound and image found in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice."

    What's missing from Fantasia 2000 is the shamelessly pandering Disney cutesy that made the original such a full-blooded nostalgic memory.
