Product Description

Triple box set. 'Fantasia' is the famously ambitious animated epic from Disney studios, including sequences set to music by - amongst others - Bach, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Mussorgsky, Schubert and Beethoven. Also featured is the famous 'Sorcerer's Apprentice' routine, in which Mickey Mouse (voiced by Walt himself for the last time) creates magical mayhem when he tries to get his chores done with the aid of a spell or two. Semi-sequel 'Fantasia 2000' also features 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice', plus seven other all-new animated interpretations of classical music. Highlights include the interwoven stories of a group of 1930s New Yorkers accompanied by Gershwin's 'Rhapsody in Blue', the volcanic eruptions which illustrate Stravinsky's 'Firebird Suite', and the story of Noah, his ark, and his assistant Donald Duck, played out to the strains of Elgar's 'Pomp and Circumstance'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant animation. 29 Mar 2001
By A Customer
When I bought the Fantasia 3 DVD box set,I was delighted with the third DVD which has great extras covering animation history,film of Walt Disney,music history,alternate endings(I really liked this extra),disgarded concepts recreated(another good extra),posters,release history etc.A fantastic third disc,however,the first two discs do not have the audio commentaries,do not have the featurettes and only have one extra each,namely the wonderful Clare De Lune and the Toot Whistle Plunk Boom cartoon.The removal of these extras was disappointing to say the least.Still,it's worth buying for the superb extra DVD as well as the wonderful animation.I also have to say that the decision to remove the original host was the correct one and they should not have brought him back as it slows the original Fantasia down.

Disney's groundbreaking film "Fantasia", released in 1940, stands today as one of the most incredible films to come out of the studios glittering array of films. It symbolises Walt Disney's pursuit for experimentation in the art form he did so much to create. Disney's dream was to turn Fantasia into a constantly changing film that audiences would return to year on year, much like a live concert, to see different pieces set to music. It never happened... that is until "Fantasia 2000".
In Fantasia 2000, Disney's new generation of animators got their chance to carry on that legacy. It is of course a legacy almost impossible to surmount, but the miracle is that at times they achieve it. Eric Goldberg's animated versions of "Rhapsody in Blue" and Carnival of the Animals", hit the mark perfectly and the Brizzi brothers electrifying adaptation of the Firebird Suite has rightly been referred to as the 'Sistine Chapel' of Disney animation. Other segments, such as "Pines of Rome" and "Pomp and Circumstance" (Fantasia 2000's answer to "The Sorcerers Apprentice") fair less well and the interstitials are more frivolous that the original. However in my view, the short films that succeed are worth the DVD by themselves. It certainly is no surprise to see the original Fantasia standing proud and undiminished, and after seeing it previously on VHS, the DVD transfer reveals details and colours previously never seen. Baring in mind "Fantasia" is one of the few colour films made in the era and the first to experiment with a surround sound score, to see and hear the film in this quality is, I think, stunning.
The bonus disk, "Fantasia Legacy" is a treasure chest of achieve material, viewing galleries, interviews and rare animation footage, one of those rare bonus disks you find yourself actually returning to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Film, Lacking DVD Release 9 Jan 2005
I guess many people are aware that Walt Disney's Fantasia is a masterpiece of the arts and the imagination. If it weren't, it would've long been forgotten. Artsy and mature, this motion picture appeals more to the adult crowd than the kids, who cannot possibly appreciate the artistic integrity on display on their TV. It's sad, however, to see that on Region 2, this film receives such a mediocre DVD release. Not only is the 1940 Fantasia disc missing extras, but it also sports a very undesirable transfer. Whereas its Region 1 counterpart boasts DTS, a THX-Certified transfer, and the best version of Fantasia we'll get for now - meaning that it's is almost like the original Roadshow version, the Region 2 copy has none of that. Instead it provides murky, grainy, and generally hideous picture quality and a less than remarkable sound mix.

Don't get this. Spend your hard earned cash on the US DVD release instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars BLISS ! 5 Nov 2000
By A Customer
The most expected DVDs ON EARTH will be yours on the 4th of december.
* "Fantasia", the greatest animated classic ever created, gets the COLLECTOR treatment. And it's an extraordinary one. Deleted scenes, audio commentary by Walt Disney himself, Dolby Digital sound... Amazing and incredible !
The videocassette, now deleted, is one of the most sought after in the world. So buy the DVD right now : it's an instant collector.
* "Fantasia 2000" is a sheer delight too. The power of human imagination has no limits. And the creators of the films prove it with great maestria.
