Product Description

Special Features

This multi-disc set comes laden with extras, accessible through needlessly fussy menus. The most interesting of the extras is the short documentary "The Schultheis Notebook." Herman Schultheis was an artist-engineer-cameraman who worked at the Walt Disney Studio in the early '40s. During his free time, he kept a meticulous notebook on the experimental processes used to create effects in Fantasia, from the whirling galaxies in "The Rite of Spring" to the spinning snowflakes in "The Waltz of the Flowers." An interactive display of the notebook can be seen in the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, and several animation historians (including this reviewer) discuss its significance. Fantasia 2000 offers Destino, the Walt Disney-Salvador Dali creation that took more than 50 years to complete, and an overproduced film about the making of it. The best of the supplemental pieces features artists Eric and Susan Goldberg and Al Hirschfeld discussing "Rhapsody in Blue," the film's most successful sequence. --Charles Solomon

HASH(0xa86c69cc) out of 5 stars Of course it's good, but I miss Deems Taylor's voice. Oct. 2 2015
By Paul Murphy - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
NOTE: this version of Fantasia does NOT have the original Deems Taylor narration; it has the voice actor Corey Burton who recorded all of Taylor's lines (most of Taylor's original dialogue tracks have not been preserved). Probably minor to most people, I find it very distracting: Deems Taylor's voice was rich and resonant while Corey Burton's is much higher in pitch.

Also, this version of Fantasia has a great deal of the original "roadshow version" footage restored. While this is nice from a historical perspective, I was purchasing this for nostalgia (I saw it for the first time as a child in 1977 and I would like to see that version). The musical portions are the same as in 1977 including the removal of the racist portrayal of the black centaurs which is a good thing (you can see the embarrassment of the original at

Overall still amazing and highly recommended.

Came very quickly in very wonderful condition. I've already watched both:) I'd been really wanting to watch them, but we only have the original VHS tapes with a VCR that decided to no longer work. I'm happy to get to continue watching these beautiful pieces over and over!

I had the original on videotape way back when, and finding this DVD with both that and the update done in 2000 is just great!
HASH(0xa84954e0) out of 5 stars Fantasia/Fantasia 2000: The Best of the Best April 20 2015
By Kathy.Frye - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
There is nothing better in music DVD's than the two Fantasias. If they are not in your library than you are missing the best. Run - do not walk - out and buy them. Everyone loves "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" from the original Fantasia. I particularly like "Rhapsody in Blue" in Fantasia 2000. But be aware: everything is great on these two DVD's, and it's a great way to acquaint children and adults to music that they might not normally hear.
