5.0 out of 5 stars A boxset unlike any other from Disney, 11 April 2007
This review is from: Fantasia Anthology [DVD] [1941] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Well! What can you say about such a special, one of a kind collector's boxset? The Disney company created something incredible here - for Walt's best film ever, I think of it as his best film.

The fact about the Uncut Roadshow Edition edition of FANTASIA is that although all the scenes that were deleted from the movie are back in the actual film (where they belong, I'd say) Deems Taylor's voice had to be dubbed in order to be able to experience this masterpiece properly as the audio for his extra personal sequences was apparently missing. That's fine by me, I guess, but what a poor choice of a man whose voice was meant to match Deems'! Corey Burton sounded absolutely nothing like him! I was outraged! Anyone could tell that that was not Deems Taylor's voice! There are people I know from this country in England (be it friends or family) who would make a better match than HE did! Whoever chose him in 2000 must be deaf for god's sake! I'd probably choose to write and complain about this to the person who wrongly selected Corey for the role but I'm not native to America so it wouldn't be so practical but I hope at least one American finds out who permitted Mr Burton to impersonate Deems Taylor and passes this message on them: "on the next DVD re-release of the movie, please try and find a replacement voice that matches Deems Taylor's voice perfectly. Corey Burton did his best but, just the same, did a poor and deficiant job of dubbing Mr Taylor's voice." That is, of course, if that future re-release IS the Restored Roadshow Edition. I'm sure that if you purchase this stunning boxset yourself, you'll agree with me completely! The difference of the two voices is that Deems' Taylor's own voice is very soft and very much like milk chocolate and Corey's voice is the exact opposite of that; sharp, painful and irritating - you did a bad job, Corey, pal!

FANTASIA 2000 is also included - a more modern yet less powerful sequel. Though the pieces are a little too short and too cute for this day in age, it is impressively well made. A very good film as a whole!

THE FANTASIA LEGACY is not yet another film but an interactive DVD full of featurettes, interviews, close-ups of the original storyboards, the story behind each and every segment, biographies of the people who made each film possible e.t.c - and this is for both FANTASIA
