Walt Disney's animated musical masterpiece is an extravaganza of sight and sound-now brilliantly restored for the first time ever in high defi nition! Blu-ray technology fi nally allows you to experience Fantasia-and Fantasia 2000, the triumphant classic it inspired-the way Walt envisioned! Plus, for the first time ever on Blu-ray, experience the 2003 Academy Award®-nominated animated short Destino-the extraordinary collaboration between Walt Disney and legendary artist Salvador Dali!
Revealing new bonus features and commentary bring the Fantasia experience to life, allowing generations of moviegoers all over the world to enjoy this timeless classic like never before. See the music come to life, hear the pictures burst into song and experience the excitement that is Fantasia over and over again.
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 SolomonSee all Editorial Reviews

The original theatrical aspect ratio for Fantasia was the square 1.43:1 "Academy Ratio" which was standard for movies at the time. Widescreen movies didn't really take off until the early 50s. Widescreen had existed previously, but really took off at that time period as filmmakers and... Read More

There's almost no chance Amazon has any slips left. There are still plenty in the stores though. Maybe you can return it to a store that has it and try to exchange it. Say it was a gift so no receipt but you wanted one with a slipcase. It might work.

|Those who cry censorship should get over it||
Is it just the pastoral symphony scenes that are censored or are there other scenes?
And to state my position on this censorship issue, I will quote Kenneth Brown from his review on blu-ray.com "Oh, and the controversial, racially charged frames that appeared in the original version of... Read More

Do a google search---type in the name/model number of your player, and "firmware update," and you should easily find out all you need to know to update your player.
