Wonderful, magnificent, moving
To all Disney lovers in the world: go and see Fantasia 2000 and you'll not
be disappointed. Sure it is something different from the original classic
(and the insertion of "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" makes this obvious: the
styles are completely apart, although it's always Disney style) but it's
breathtaking and moving. The only thing that I missed was that the typical
effect of the music panning through the screen to follow the characters is
somewhat missing in the recording of the pieces. Dolby Digital is a little
minus convincing that the old surround of the original classic. Donald and
Daisy are great in "Pump and circumstance" but the segments that are truly
irresistible are the "Rhapsody in Blue", the "Carnival of the Animals", and
the wonderful "Firebird suite" , a strong and chilling description of the
struggle between Nature and Fire. I don't say a word more!!! Go, watch and
enjoy the music..

Loved the original Fantasia..
something is missing
The good news is that this is not a bad movie, and could be a nice afternoon
out. There are some nice pieces of animation, the music and sound-track
quality is superb, there are many cameos of well known figures,
The magic and spirit of the original "Fantasia" are gone. There's too much
use of computer animation (like in the "pines of Rome" segment), which, when
compared with the original painstaking hand-drawn animation in "The
Sorcerer's apprentice" seems somewhat hollow and flat. There are too many
people in this movie - Steve Martin, James Levine, Bette Middler, to name
only a few. The result is lack of coherence, and a general air of "This is
your life", and not a whole movie.
The stories in the different segments are not always clear enough (for
instance "Pines of Rome" again, and "Rhapsody in blue"). All in all, it
should have been a much better movie. As it is now, I miss the
