I just had a viewing of this movie for the first time in possibly 10 years, and it remains a very valiant effort. The segments are very enjoyable, and I wish the overall peace could be a little longer, closer to the two hours of the original Fantasia. I would like to see them continue with Walt Disney‘s dream, and add additional segments, at any given time.
For fans of Citizen Kane, or for that matter 1930s Hollywood, this is a must see. The filmmakers have created such an excellent period piece, that at times I forgot it was new. Nearly perfect casting of the appropriate character actors, helps to maintain the illusion. This might be difficult for the average moviegoer, but for those with an IT for detail, and an enjoyment of old-school filmmaking (including the little editing marks at the corner of the screen), this movie is a joy to behold.
