Movie Info

"Fantasia/2000" brings to fruition Walt Disney's dream of creating a "concert film" with a perpetually changing repertoire. Sixty years after the release of Disney's classic 1940 experiment in sight and sound, a new generation of Disney animators and filmmakers offer an exciting showcase for today's audiences as they visually interpret classical compositions by Beethoven, Shostakovich, Respighi, Gershwin, Dukas, Saint-Saens, Elgar, and Stravinsky. This animated extravaganza features seven new … More

Critic Reviews for Fantasia 2000

All Critics (85) | Top Critics (22) | Fresh (67) | Rotten (15) | DVD (12)

The rest of these animated sequences depend on gimmickry, cuteness, or facile ideology.

It provides some fine artists the chance to stretch and frolic, even as it reminds today's audiences of animation's limitless borders.

TIME Magazine
Top Critic

This must be the most belated sequel the movies have produced.

Time Out
Top Critic

As with the original Fantasia, the new film is a mixture of artistically respectable and mediocre moments, which for overall ambition and range, has no parallel in the world of contemporary animation.

Globe and Mail
Top Critic

It's not that the images aren't pretty, or that great care hasn't gone into them -- it's that the sensibility behind them is so icky, limited in its conception of beauty to picture postcards and the sort of paintings you see in chain hotels.

Top Critic

Whatever its flaws -- from kitschy cupids to racist centaurs -- at least the first Fantasia had a human touch. The sequel seems cold and mechanical by comparison.

Overall, though, I didn't find it particularly satisfying

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Although magnificent and filled with imagination, Fantasia 2000 doesn't hold up as being particularly ground-breaking or innovative.

Full Review… | December 25, 2010

Delightful, but may scare more sensitive kids.

Common Sense Media

A worthy successor to the original concept, allowing the next generation of animation talent to cut loose. [Blu-ray]

Groucho Reviews

A lightweight affair... Despite some momentary flashes of brilliance, this is no successor to the great Fantasia.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Fantasia/2000 will no doubt become a Disney perennial, but that does not by definition make it a classic.

Full Review… | October 18, 2008
Austin Chronicle

Like its predecessor, Fantasia 2000 offers a plotless string of beautifully animated vignettes set to music; unlike its predecessor, it's a good deal shorter and far less tedious for it.

Full Review… | September 7, 2008

This new installment perhaps aims slightly lower than the original.

Big Picture Big Sound

This new Fantasia corrects some of the flaws of the old movie, but generates some new flaws of its own.

Combustible Celluloid

The IMAX presentation of this millennial sequel is a welcome addition to the family, though it seems to lack the heart of the original.

Film Threat

A roller-coaster ride of energy, utilizing incredible animated imagery, elegant classical music and state-of-the-art technology.

Palo Alto Weekly

My only complaint is that it was over too soon.

It is a reminder that, after all these years, memories of the first Fantasia can still conjure magic in the mind.

Sight and Sound

This stuffy sequel features seven new 'movements' and 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice,' the buzz clip from the 1940 original.

In Fantasia 2000 a simple spell is rediscovered: elegant storytelling, masterful animation and timeless music make movie magic.

Audience Reviews for Fantasia 2000

My high school band had intimate relationships with several of the songs in this second incarnation of Disney's art and music fantasy. The slow yet strident "Pines of Rome" ended many an unconventional marching band show; the ubiquitous "Rhapsody in Blue" featured our prodigies in clarinet and piano; the bombastic and rhythm-mad "Firebird Suite" capped off my senior year concert; and "Pomp and Circumstance" (more widely known as "The Graduation Song") was played in its entirety by the junior band during commencement ceremonies.

"Fantasia 2000" is indeed a full movie-going experience with beautifully animated vignettes, classic but recognizable music, and entertaining if cheap celebrity appearances (instead of the plodding prologue of its predecessor). Watching it again recently though did provoke some criticism in me: the combination of sound and visual is sometimes too on-the-nose. The story is too clear; each audio beat is visually punctuated. There is very little room for abstract interpretation.

Beautiful film

Not as good as the original FANTASIA phenomenon.

Alexander Diminiano

Super Reviewer

I loved Fantasia but when I saw Fantasia 2000 on IMAX. Oh my gosh! What a great job. My favorites are The firebird suite, Rhapsody in Blue and Pines of Rome. Outstanding animation in all the three. Disney will never stop amazing you.
