While this update is still a masterful achievement of sound in animation, it doesn't quite match the power of the first feature.

If "Fantasia" represents the "2001: A Space Odyssey" of Disney animation, consider "Fantasia 2000" its "2010" - a workmanlike sequel that still has stunning moments but hardly approaches its forefather.

It's a clip show not a concert.

balance in animation styles

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

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

Delightful, but may scare more sensitive kids.

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

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

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

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

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

This new installment perhaps aims slightly lower than the original.

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

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

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

My only complaint is that it was over too soon.
Dec 3, 2002
It is a reminder that, after all these years, memories of the first Fantasia can still conjure magic in the mind.

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