Fantasia created the mold for blending music and movie magic into an exhilarating moviegoing experience.

With this special edition DVD, you are invited on a behind-the-scenes look at Fantasia . Included is a compilation of audio interviews with Walt Disney spanning three decades, much of which has never been heard , as well as insightful commentaries by Roy E. Disney and others whose talents have contributed to the Fantasia legacy. Never before has this masterpiece looked and sounded better than in this 60th anniversary edition DVD. Enjoy the history, the sounds, the sheer excitement that is Fantasia !

Fantasia 2000
Disney animators and filmmakers have again expanded the boundaries of imagination with Fantasia 2000 . Fulfilling Walt Disney's original vision of uniquely fusing sight and sound in a full-length motion picture, this film begins where its predecessor, Fantasia , left off, with seven completely new segments and the return of the popular "The Sorcerer's Apprentice." In this fun-filled movie, breathtaking images are coupled with classical music favorites. From Beethoven to Gershwin -- from flamingos bobbing yo-yos to a city in bluesy motion -- vivid animation brings the music of the masters to colorful life. Sixty years after the original masterpiece, Roy E. Disney has orchestrated a brilliant collaboration of more than 1,200 artists and technicians -- including the animators of The Lion King, Beauty And The Beast and Aladdin -- to present Fantasia 2000 , a film filled with "dazzling moments" (The New York Times) and "arguably the greatest Disney film ever" (KNX-CBS Radio), that is sure to captivate viewers of all ages!
