Does Not Live Up To The Original
on December 24, 2010
Fantasia 2000 is one hour and fifteen minutes long and was released in theaters on December 17, 2000. This film is a full fifty minutes shorter then the original Fantasia. In the original Fantasia one host is used and in Fantasia 2000 there are a total of nine hosts\hostesses in this film and that is one too many in my book. Both films feature the same number of musical segments and The Sorcerer's Apprentice is the only segment to be featured in both films. Also another difference between both films it the production of the films. The original Fantasia was produced all at once while Fantasia 2000 segments were produced during gaps of full length feature films and that why Fantasia 2000 looks like is was done if a cookie cutter fashion.
Barring the negatives that I wrote above Fantasia 2000 art is great as well as the animation. The Steadfast Tin Soldier lead characters are completely computer animated as well as the flying whale, which the exception of the eyes, in Pines of Rome. There are over five dozen different colors used in this film alone. Still I was left wanting more. Fantasia 2000 gets a C+.
