As a classical music fan I really enjoyed this film. My favorites are the Tchaikovsky Nutcracker sequence and the terrifying animation to go along with Mussorgsky's "Night on Bald Mountain".

Fantasia is always forgotten. When people do remember it, they never have anything to say about it. This film is full of probably Disney's best hand-drawn animation all played out to history's best music. This film could be timeless if people would just give it a chance.

With outstanding musical symphonies, gorgeous animation, incredible visuals and emotion in every scene, Fantasia sends Animated Disney films soaring to new heights.

Definitely one of my favorite Classic Disney films. This film is a masterpiece. Mixing classical music with cartoons was a great idea. All the chosen classical pieces are amazing. The cartoons put with the music are beautifully drawn. This film doesn't drag even though it's 2 hours and 5 minutes. Definitely check it out if you LOVE Disney.


Rating: 10/10

A misunderstood masterpiece at the time, Disney's groundbreaking film combines both classical music and stunning animation to create something entirely wonderful. Each musical cue is accounted in for in the imagery, and the mood of each piece is captured perfectly in the segment. No words needed, just the beauty in what you see and hear. For those wanting to go into the music business or join an animation studio, this is a must, because there is a reason why Fantasia stands the test of time. In addition, it is great to see a stepping stone to how Disney has gone since the humble beginnings seen here.

Beautiful and imaginative but questionable, standards-wise, Fantasia lifts the usual air about classical music to be an inspirational experiment in art.

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.

Fantasia mixes some excellent music with Disney's animation talent to make a perfect mix of sound and sight.
