This film is widely regarded as one of the absolute greatest, if not the greatest animated film to come from Disney. “Fantasia” was released in 1940, making it the third full length animated movie from the Disney studio and it was Walt Disney’s biggest dream project to create a movie that was like an animated consort feature and that’s just what the movie is, a collection of animated short films that are all matched to classical music. While it’s personally not one of my absolute favorite Disney movies, I do still hold a lot of admiration towed this film for being so unique and innovative for its time. The same way that classic musical pieces like Beethoven's 5th symphony are considered immortal, I’d like to make the argument that “Fantasia” is also immortal for being such a landmark experience, not just in regard to Disney and animation but to film in general.
I give “Fantasia” 4 stars out of 5.
