The original 1940 animated classic features sequences set to music by Bach, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Mussorgsky, Schubert and Beethoven. The film opens with the now-famous 'Sorcerer's Apprentice' routine, in which Mickey Mouse conjures up a troublesome mop when he messes around with a magical wand. This movie still stand up today and brings back memories of a simpler time and artistry.
Fantasia 2000 is an ode to the original film, Fantasia. It starts withe original film's most famous sequence - the Mickey Mouse adventure 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice' and seven other all-new animated interpretations of classical music. Among the best is a sequence that features the stories of 1930s New Yorkers accompanied by Gershwin's 'Rhapsody in Blue', a tale of volcanic myth set against Stravinsky's 'Firebird Suite', a comical version of the Noah's Ark story and Elgar's 'Pomp and Circumstance'.
The two films feature the talents of Leopold Stokowski, Walt Disney, Steve Martin, Bette Midler, James Earl Jones, and James Levine. The documentaries included add to the magical and musical experience.
Both films provide animated takes on the classic music we usually find boring to make it into something memorable. If you ever want a charming film to watch get this special double pack with the original Fantasia film and Fantasia 2000.
Deems Taylor's voice is dubbed over, and that is irritating to my childhood memory of this film.
