I really enjoy this animation. The plot was interesting and magical and had very good animation. I was highly entertain throwout the movie. It meet the hype, and the place i seen the movie was even more exciting. Trailer didn't show the full glory of this movie. Is This Movie Mainstream Or Pretty Obscure? The movie is mainstream and obscure, I am not a musical fan, but this movie is a 10, i never been more excited to watch a film in recent history. The movie is fun for the kids, but as an adult you will also enjoy this film. It sad they don't make good pictures like this anymore t
First off, the Fantasia I had in mind was from those days I visited Disneyland and Disneyworld. I remembered the awesome music and when I accidentally chanced upon it on one of China’s biggest online bookstores, a DVD for less than a US$1, I grabbed it without much of a thought. The beauty of ordering online in China is that no matter where you’re within China, shipping is free of charge as long as your order amounts to a total of some US$4 or so.

I recently acquired a licensed DVD copy of this movie in China and while watching it, an interesting thought came to mind...

Walt Disney took a big chance with this ambitious anthology of animated fantasies. First, he set them to lengthy classical music pieces, and then he boldly experimented with different forms of animation, sometimes jettisoning any sort of narrative altogether. The result is a sometimes mesmerizing, sometimes hilarious, sometimes frightening, but always beautiful moviegoing experience. A box-office failure when first released, it's now considered a timeless treasure. Highlights include: Mickey Mouse in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," the leaping hippos and alligators in "Dance of the Hours," the rise and fall of the dinosaurs set to Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring," the dancing mushrooms of Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker Suite," and Mussorgsky's "Night on Bald Mountain," with its fearsome winged demon raging at the heavens.
