Fantasia 2000 Reviews

November 16, 2009
The rest of these animated sequences depend on gimmickry, cuteness, or facile ideology.
September 7, 2008
It provides some fine artists the chance to stretch and frolic, even as it reminds today's audiences of animation's limitless borders.

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

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.

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.
March 21, 2001
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.

Sixty years after Walt Disney's animators first set cartoons to classical music, they've conjured up seven new sequences for Fantasia 2000. Judging from the often Mickey Mouse results, they may have been too hasty.

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
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
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.

Where else can you see Perlman's hair in such stunning details, find Donald Duck as a major character in a Bible story and experience the distinctive mixture of comfort and grandeur that Disney excels in creating?

Seems to have been made by people with nothing in particular to prove.

Beautifully designed and presented.

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

Ideally the music and imagery should fuse into something larger than either. It has rarely worked out that way.

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

Not only music made visible. It is a millennial medley to the max.

An exhilarating animation concert.

A labor of love.

More than lives up to its clever positioning as the first movie of the new millennium.
