Best Animated Feature of All Time.

Fantasia is definitely one of the most classical Disney movies. I think it can be hard to be understood by the newest generations of today, so used to be overstimulated and not being able to enjoy the simple nature of things, as a beautiful well executed classical piece that brings up to life fantastic creatures and original stories. There is no need to have a specific plot when the idea is that the music and images are the red thread thorough the movie. Some parts might be a bit too complex for kids to understand and purely enjoy, but why everything has to be easy and served on a silver plate?

Just because this movie has no story doesn't mean it sucks. The animation mixed with several different classical pieces works so beautifully and brilliantly that it ultimately makes the film one of Disney's absolute greatest accomplishments.

Such a beautiful film. Some scenes are confusing, but the music goes together wonderfully with the visuals. It was a masterpiece in animation when it came out and the beauty still holds true.

The third Walt Disney Pictures animated feature film, "Fantasia" is a groundbreaking experimental project from Walt Disney that showcases classical music and imaginative animation. Taking short Walt Disney Studio animation shorts and pairing them to compressed classical music pieces performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra was an extremely ambitious undertaking in 1940. The animation is extremely impressive for its time as it features Disney's signature character Mickey Mouse in 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice' segment as well as using pioneering sound reproduction system that made "Fantasia" the first commercial film to use stereophonic sound. This was Walt Disney's masterpiece that uses music to express imagination and feelings together with animation.

"Fantasia" has the essence of Disney at its core. Charming stories with memorable characters set to music, it's the magical world of Disney summed up in one feature.

Only flaw is it's too long, but everything else is perfection

Basically perfect. Though you have to be in the mood for it.

The Sorcerers Apprentice & Night on a Bald Mountain / Ave Maria are some of the best musical moments attached to a film ever created. Simply beautiful. The rest however, falls kind of flat.

People who think this is boring were always going to find it boring. Take that for what you will.

Uno dei migliori film d'animazione mai creati, si basa sull'idea allora rivoluzionaria di esprimere visivamente grandi pezzi della musica classica. Più che un film è un' esperienza unica che ci trascina dentro la musica, con animazioni incredibili che hanno già fatto la storia: audio e video diventano una cosa sola con lo scopo di far vivere allo spettatore un vero a proprio sogno. E' evidente come gli splendidi disegni diano ispirazione a gran parte dei film futuri Disney, vista l'evidente somiglianza tra le figure e i movimenti. Sono sicuro che se fosse durato la metà avrebbe comunque conservato le sue migliori qualità: ancora adesso il film risulta essere molto pesante e difficile da seguire fino alla fine. Si tratta solo di un dettaglio superficiale che non scalfisce un film di una bellezza così maestosa.

Fantasia is timeless for mixing classical music pieces and animation together!

For a movie that's 56 years old and relies solely on classical music, Fantasia is still an entertaining spectacle for both eyes and ears. Though it's definitely not for everyone, the animations are stunning and diverse through its many sections and leave viewers interested. The movie could have done without the pointless "Meet the Soundtrack" section and the Dance of the Hours segment left a little to be desired, but for the most part the animators created some gorgeous work and included some classic scenes like Mickey's first film appearance in The Sorcerer's Apprentice.

La mejor película de animación de todos los tiempos para mí. Decir cualquier otra cosa sería redundar mucho. Una obra de arte en toda la extensión de la palabra, bella, atemporal, única, mágica, y si no la has visto, no sé qué has estado haciendo con tu vida todo este tiempo.
