Fails to live up to more than its 60-year-old predecessor's two-hour running time.

January 1, 2000
Disney underestimates the intelligence and sophistication of young audiences.
January 1, 2000
For introducing children to the joys of classical music, the Warner Bros. Bugs Bunny cartoon shorts were far wittier and much less condescending.
January 1, 2000
Ideally the music and imagery should fuse into something larger than either. It has rarely worked out that way.

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.

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

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

Doesn't play like a celebration. In its sentimental yearning for a golden age when another one's upon us, it feels a little like a rebuke.
January 1, 2000
Compared to how visually and narratively imaginative Disney-released animated films have been in the 1990s, this one seems at a loss for purpose.
January 1, 2000
Seems to have been made by people with nothing in particular to prove.
August 8, 2001
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.
November 16, 2009
The rest of these animated sequences depend on gimmickry, cuteness, or facile ideology.
March 24, 2002
Big mistake.
January 1, 2000
Splendid entertainment.

Fantasia 2000 does not soar the way its predecessor did, but neither does it plummet to the earth.

As the first theatrical release designed exclusively for IMAX screens, it fills the eyes of the audience with splendor.

Delightful, but may scare more sensitive kids.

Firmly re-establishes that studio's leadership in animation at the dawn of the new century.
