Delightful, but may scare more sensitive kids.

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.
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.
December 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.

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.

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.

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

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?
January 1, 2000
Beautifully designed and presented.
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.
January 1, 2000
A labor of love.
January 1, 2000
An exhilarating animation concert.
January 1, 2000
More than lives up to its clever positioning as the first movie of the new millennium.
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
Firmly re-establishes that studio's leadership in animation at the dawn of the new century.
