Fantasia 2000 Reviews
September 29, 2020
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.
