FANTASIA/FANTASIA 2000: 2-Movie Collection Special Edition – CLOSED

On November 30th, Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 were released onto DVD and Blu-Ray as a combo pack.

Here’s a Synopsis:

The dreams and visions of Walt Disney come to life in Fantasia, which blends music and film magic into an exhilarating movie-going experience. Unforgettable images are brought to life by some of the world’s best music, and highlighted by the comedy of Mickey Mouse as a troublemaking sorcerer’s apprentice, along with the beauty of winged fairies and cascading snowflakes, the majesty of Noah’s ark and even plump hippos performing ballet in tutus.

Motivated by his uncle’s foresight, Roy Disney continued the magic with Fantasia 2000 which begins where its predecessor left off. There are seven completely new segments, and viewers watch a bustling Depression-era metropolis in the style of Al Hirschfeld’s famous cartoons, a flock of flamingos with slapstick yo-yo talents, an ark full of animals gathered by Donald Duck as Noah’s first mate, and musical life breathed into a family of flying humpback whales.

When I first put on the DVD to review this movie, I was expecting the same Fantasia that I had watched many years ago as a young girl.  To my surprise, I was introduced to Steve Martin, it is then, that I realized that this was a new movie that I have not seen before.  I had heard of Fantasia 2000 before, but I thought it was just a restoration of the classic Fantasia film made in 1940.

Fantasia 2000 is based on the same premise as the classic, however, it’s a whole new set of music and animation (well kinda).  There is also one classic piece in Fantasia 2000 from the original, The The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (the one with the brooms and water). There are also famous guest speakers between each piece in Fantasia 2000, such as Bette Midler and Angela Lansbury.  Your kids may not know them, but you surly will.    It seemed a little less scary watching it this time, than it did when I was just a girl.

I found Fantasia 2000 to be a little less heavy than the original movie. There are still some scary parts, such as a jack-in-the-box that becomes a evil, and a very mean volcano.  Some of these are way too scary for little ones.  However, not all of the mini movies are scary – there are some very fun and light ones too. My favourite song was the flamingos, it’s a bright fun and silly song!  One of the flamingos is similar to the dopey Alice and Wonderland Flamingo.   I also really enjoyed Noah’s Arc, I think it’s great to bring in this classic bible story into a Disney film.  I wish they would do these things more often.

  2. I’d give it to my family…we just recently got a blue ray player and new tv so we don’t have many dvd’s yet. 😉 We love this film too…we were just saying that we should get this and add to our list of movies to buy! 😀 So perfect timing. 😉

  3. I would give this to my youngest son….he loves to dance and I
    love the music in these movies!

  5. I would give this to my sister’s kids. She has 5 of her own and a step-daughter. Movies do not last in her house, so even if they had it in the past, it would still be a good give for the younger kids (who may have missed this classic even)!

  10. i got to say my husband would love it … but also at the same time I think the kids would also love to watch it with him. Thanks for the chance to win

  11. I’d love to get this for my kids. We have Fantasia 2000 on VHS, so it needs to be replaced and my kids have never seen the original Fantasia.

  12. I’m sorry, but this would be a gift to *me*. I grew up watching Fantasia, and I got to see Fantasia 2000 in high school as a choir field trip. I love the combination of animation and classical music, always have~

  13. Is it awful to say I’d keep it for myself?
    Fantasia has always been one of my favourite
    all-time Disney movies!!!

  14. This movie would be a great gift for my 2.5 year old daughter (hopefully not too scary!) and I would enjoy watching it with her!
    thanks

  15. I would give this to my daughter so she could watch it with her two little girls and with me watching it with them too. 🙂

  19. I would give this as a Christmas Eve family gift so we could all watch it together in our new Christmas pajamas.

  20. I would give it to my best friends daughter, because we both loved the movie as kids I am sure she would too.

  21. I’m disappointed that this is the censored version of Fantasia and so I refuse to spend any money on it. I still want it, but I’m not going to buy it… I guess I’ll have to be super lucky and win it instead! My son has never seen Fantasia or Fantasia 2000, so I think he’ll be wowed. Thanks.

  24. I’d love to surprise my nephew with “Fantasia” – I don’t believe he’s
    ever seen it, and he’s just at the right age where he’ll be able to
    appreciate it. It would be a gift for me as well, because I’d get to
    share it with him and watch it alongside him. Thanks for the chance
    to enter!

  25. Thanks for the giveaway…I would give this to my 3 year old goddaughter, Eden.
