THE Animated masterpiece!!!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Fantasia 2000 (Full Screen) (DVD)I don't understand all of these one star reviews! I saw Fantasia 2000 in an IMAX theater when it first came out and I was knocked out! I grew up on all the animated Disney classics and this one is by far the most advanced artistically and creatively. With Fantasia 2000, Disney finally gives us an 'adult' production that is an excellent depiction of how far 'traditional' animation can go into scope, symbolism, expression, and stylistic ranges. There's something for everyone here, from the charming Tin Soldier to the Rebirth of the Firebird Suite. Some reviewers call this pretentious, but who cares! I like something that will make me think, nothing wrong with that.
The new Fantasia is better than the original, having recently watched them back to back. The original is great but slightly dated compared to it's sequal (or it's continuation). Mickey's segment is preserved in the 2000 version however. Fantasia is a work of art worthy of standing next to films the likes of 2001 Space Odyssey, Amadeus, Clockwork Orange, Godfather 1-2,or Lord of The Rings. Highly recommmended! Broaden your outlook, and grow up along with Disney studio's triumphant Fantasia 2000.
