Fantasia 1940

An innovative and revolutionary animated classic from Walt Disney, combining Western classical music masterpieces with imaginative visuals, presented with Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra. The eight animation sequences are colorful, impressive, free-flowing, abstract, and often surrealistic pieces. They include the most famous of all, Paul Dukas's "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" with Mickey Mouse as the title character battling brooms carrying endless buckets of water. Also included are J.S. Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor"; Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker Suite"; dinosaurs and volcanoes in Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring"; the delightful "Dance of the Hours" by Ponchielli with dancing hippos, crocodiles, ostriches, and elephants; and Mussorgsky's darkly apocalyptic "Night on Bald Mountain."

Fantasia Movie Review by James (5/23/2019)

Walt Disney strived to create some of the best content when concerning animation. He stunned audience's ears with 1928's "Steamboat Willie" becoming the first ever cartoon with synchronized sound. He defied the movie industry with the first ever feature length animated movie: "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" in 1937. And...

Fantasia Movie Review by Derringer (12/11/2011)

Released in 1940 - FANTASIA, a beautifully dazzling treat of both sight and sound, was the very first commercial film to be presented in stereophonic sound.

Even though FANTASIA was a commercial failure upon its release in 1940, since 1969 (due to regular re-releases) it has grossed over $76 million, making it the 21st...
