Additional 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

Format: Blu-ray
For those of you who may be reading through the other reviews here on Amazon, and being turned off of this product due to all of the complaints of so-called "censorship", I feel the need to set things straight. You are not being told the whole story by the angry one-star reviews.

First of all, the missing (approximately) 15 seconds from the film has been missing since 1969. Most of us probably weren't even born at that time. So it's not like this isn't the Fantasia that we grew up with. Besides, Fantasia has undergone many edits over the years. The original theatrical version was only 81 minutes long (and included the 15 seconds of racism), the version on this new blu-ray/DVD release is 125 minutes (and does not include the 15 seconds of racism, but has 44 minutes of footage that has been restored since the original release). There have been almost a dozen re-edits of Fantasia since it's release in 1940, most of them to restore and repair lost or damaged footage, so making a big deal out of losing 15 seconds is redundant.

More importantly, if you actually saw the 15 seconds of edited film that has caused such a stir, you'd understand the need to remove it (by the way, if you're curious enough you can find the missing scenes on youtube, or do a google image search for "Fantasia Sunflower" to see the black centaur). This is no small offense. The Pastoral Symphony scene is packed with beautiful skinny centaur girls of many different vibrant colors, all with perfect bodies (at least the non-horse part) and long flowing hair. Of the many colors of centaur there is only on black one, and this one black centaur also happens to be short and goofy looking with crooked teeth, big hips, messy matted hair, and huge pail lips.

After originally looking at this item and its reviews, I was worried that I wouldn't get the version I'd grown up with (I'm 26) - people were complaining about censorship and edits (one review said the movie was only 90 minutes long). I checked the VHS I own - it's 120 minutes. So, of course, I was concerned.

However, after looking into it, this seems to be one of the most complete copies that exists. I looked for images of the back of the actual box - the running times are listed as 125 minutes for Fantasia, and 75 minutes for Fantasia 2000. Both of these times are LONGER than their respective VHS times. The original roadshow release of Fantasia was 125 minutes long, so it sounds as if everything has been restored.

This leaves the censorship. The "censored" scenes haven't been in the releases of the film since 1969, so I'd never even seen them. After viewing the "uncut" version on YouTube, I have to say that this is VERY minor, and I don't miss it at all. The character of Sunflower (besides being very racist) is very jarring amongst the rest of the sequence. She simply doesn't fit in, which was probably the original racist intention, but it disrupts the rest of the art. Besides, in total, the cuts number a few seconds in length, and have no impact on the storyline. I don't think it's that important - especially since OTHER black centaurs exist in the film. (They accompany Bacchus/Dionysus into frame - they are the "zebra" centaurs, and in my opinion are some of the prettiest.)

Finally (and look down on this if you like), I read the release history of the film on Wikipedia. The history confirms that this is likely the most complete release available (it mentions no differences between this release and the 60th anniversary edition).

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
If you're looking for the highest quality presentation of Fantasia available, this is the set to purchase. The Blu-ray versions of both Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 in 1080p are positively beautiful. Crystal clear animation with no discernible artifact (banding), lush grays and blacks, and the artistic beauty of Disney's animators at their best is featured in these two extravagant movies. And yes, the movie has been censored in that we're missing a portion of one frame for a few seconds thanks to some overanxious lawyers at Disney, but that shouldn't stop you from enjoying what are otherwise superb video presentations. (One star lost to the censorship issue).

There's an additional downside. The prior release of this set was the Fantasia Anthology. This was a DVD (not Bluray) release with three discs. You'd not be faulted for thinking: "That set has three discs. This one has four. This one, therefore, has more content." You would, however, be wrong. In both sets, one disc is Fantasia and one disc is Fantasia 2000. In the Anthology, Disc 3 is Fantasia Legacy, a bank of hours of supplemental features. In the new four disc set, Disc 3 is simply a DVD (non Bluray) of Fantasia while Disc 4 is simply a DVD of Fantasia 2000. Where did the Legacy supplemental material go? It's now on BD-Live in the "Disney Virtual Vault." So the picture resolution and overall quality has deteriorated AND you get to wait for the BD-Live connection to come to life AND you're counting on Disney making this available for the life of the disc (e.g. forever) which may or may not be the case.

Fantasia lovers out there will therefore want both the Bluray set here for the best possible presentation of the movie AND the Anthology 3 disc set for the supplemental feature disc.

I have Bluray.

Some cinephile explain to me why Fantasia is in full screen but Fantasia...
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

No slipcover?
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.
