It begins with an abstract battle of light and darkness set to the music of Beethoveen’s Fifth Symphony. Then we see the adventures of a Humpback Whale calf and his pod set to “The Pines of Rome.” Next is the humourous story of several lives in 1930’s New York City, scored with “Rhapsody in Blue.” Following is a musical telling of the fairy tale, “The Steadfast Tin Soldier” set to Dmitri Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Then a goofy Flamingo causes havoc in his flock with his yo-yo to the tune of the finale of “Carnival of the Animals.” This is followed by the classic sequence from the original film, “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” starring Mickey Mouse and followed by “Pomp and Circumstance” starring Donald Duck as a harried assistant to Noah on his Ark. Finally, we see the awesome tale of the life, death and renewal of a forest in a sequence featuring the composition, “The Firebird.”
Plot: Blending lively music and brilliant animation, this sequel to the original ‘Fantasia’ restores ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ and adds seven new shorts.

I can’t stop watching it!!! Four of the seven new segments in this film are alone well worth the admission. Roy Disney Jr. sets the stage for a remarkable departure from the usual animated dreck that Disney has been bogged down by for the last half-decade (Toy Story aside). Disney have hereby restored my faith in them as leading the pack in animated cinema. I want more!!
“Pines of Rome”, a marvelous piece set to the “story” of whales leaving the water and eventually the planet, is worth viewing several times for it’s symbolism and exquisite look. “Rhapsody in Blue”, by Gershwin, is given perfect treatment by a day in the life of New York City. The pace is quick and manages to give each character studied enough depth to make a very satisfying and touching ending. “Pomp and Circumstance”, the graduation standard, is humorous and sweet. Creating a love story involving Donald and Daisy Duck into the story of Noah’s Ark worked surprisingly well. “Firebird Suite”- WOW. This is the most incredible segment of the film. It’s a PERFECT marriage of music and animation and MUST be played loud. Very emotional and powerful indeed.
I had to post another comment because I can’t stress enough that it’s a worthy successor to the original Fantasia, and Walt would be proud.
An Enduring Legacy
The first time I heard about it, I was a little skeptical about another Fantasia, as I am shy of sequels. However, I learned that it was the original intention of Disney to make Fantasia an ongoing project, so I decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did.
Beethoven’s 5th Symphony- Probably his most famous work due to the iconic dun dun dun dun’s, the opening sequence does not fail to excite. The abstract imagery set against a powerful composition echoes the original Fantasia’s opening number. It’s simple, it’s fun and it whets my appetite for what’s coming up.
Pines of Rome- I did not like this one very much at first. The flying whales were just a bit strange to me, and I didn’t quite understand the point of the segment. The 3D and traditional animation didn’t mix very well either. However, it has grown on me, especially the latter half. The music is quite beautiful and stirring.
Rhapsody in Blue- I love this one so much. The amount of development each character gets for only having a 10 min time slot is staggering. I was able to empathize with each one. The clever beginning with a single line shaping the New York skyline is fun to watch. The quirky caricatures compliment the jazz style very well.
Piano concerto No 2- This is a beautiful treatment of the Tin Soldier by Hans Christian Anderson. The computer animated characters look a bit simplistic, but it helps emphasize they are children’s toys: the complexity is in your imagination. The computer and traditional animation mesh much better in this short. As for the “Disneyfied” ending, I thought the original was depressing anyways. If you are still mourning the obligatory happy ending in every single Disney film, you really should have stopped watching years ago.
Carnival of the Animals, Finale- Zany, colorful and quick enough that it doesn’t have a chance to get old. The bright watercolors offer a refreshing POP to the program.
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice- I’m kind of sad they chose to put this short into the new version. Yeah, I get that mixing old with new was part of the original concept, but it was never my favourite. If you want my opinion on it, check out my review of the original. I usually skip it in Fantasia 2000 anyways.
Pomp and Circumstance-Yay for Donald Duck! A secular company telling the story of the Ark is a tricky thing, but the animators blended in humor without being irreverent. Pomp and Circumstance is a wonderful piece of music, not just for graduations. Despite the usual gags, the subplot of Donald losing Daisy was quite tender.
Firebird Suite- hands down, this is my favourite. Music: superb, theme: classic, animation; beautiful. The cycle of life, death and rebirth through the eyes of a sprite and an elk is poignantly portrayed with the eruption of a volcano. It also echoes the ending of the original Fantasia. LOVELY!
As a whole, I really loved this movie. All the music is truly beautiful and every segment has it’s outstanding points. What really annoyed me were the celebrity skits. They got old after the first viewing. I would have preferred much more straightforward, streamlined information. Overall, though, great! I hope to see more someday soon.
