Fantasia / Fantasia 2000

 (1940-1999)

Fantasia / Fantasia 2000 Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Fantasia: this ambitious animated epic from Disney studios includes sequences set to music by - amongst others - Bach, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Mussorgsky, Schubert and Beethoven. Also featured is the famous 'Sorcerer's Apprentice' routine, in which Mickey Mouse creates magical mayhem when he tries to get his chores done with the aid of a spell or two.

Fantasia 2000: A semi-sequel to Disney's 1940 classic 'Fantasia' which features the original film's most famous sequence - the Mickey Mouse adventure 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice' - plus seven other all-new animated interpretations of classical music. Highlights include the interwoven stories of a group of 1930s New Yorkers accompanied by Gershwin's 'Rhapsody in Blue', the volcanic eruptions which illustrate Stravinsky's 'Firebird Suite', and the story of Noah, his ark, and his assistant Donald Duck, played out to the strains of Elgar's 'Pomp and Circumstance'.

Fantasia / Fantasia 2000 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Aesthetically, Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 couldn't be more different. However, Disney has invested considerable effort into restoring, remastering and presenting each one as faithfully and proficiently as possible, and the 1080p/AVC-encoded results are equally beautiful. Color erupts from the screen at every turn, regardless of how blazing or bleak a particular segment's palette may be. Primaries are gorgeous, black levels are rich and inky, and contrast is strong and satisfying throughout. Each hand-painted backgrounds and CG dreamscape stands as a testament to its animators' skills, and textures -- whether born from an artist's brush or a turn-of-the-century computer -- are perfectly preserved and precisely resolved. Moreover, Fantasia's hand-drawn frames are as true to their source as Fantasia 2000's razor-wire line art and computer-generated characters. Yes, the latter is noticeably sharper than the former, but anyone who tries to pit the 1940 classic against its 1999 sequel is a poor, misguided apprentice in need of a master. Both transfers are largely free of artifacting, noise and other distracting anomalies, and only a few, brief oddities spoil the otherwise flawless presentations. Specifically? Inherent ringing and color bleeding haunt Fantasia's live-action scenes, and some extremely minor banding (watch the green sky during The Carnival of Animals), blocking (keep an eye on the murky depths of the ocean during Pines of Rome) and aliasing (typically associated with the film's CG elements) invade Fantasia 2000 on occasion. Again though, each instance is so negligible that even the most unflinching videophile will overlook whatever issue arises. Both Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 look fantastic, and Disney has done a wonderful job of ushering each one into the 21st century. Animation enthusiasts and Vault collectors will be exceedingly happy with the treatment each one has received.

Oh, and the controversial, racially charged frames that appeared in the original version of Fantasia's Pastoral Symphony? None of the exorcised material has been reinstated, but let's be very, very clear: it amounts to a few seconds (none of which is essential to the segment in the slightest), doesn't impact the flow of the animation and, most importantly, hasn't appeared in an official presentation of the film since 1969. While a small but vocal minority have aired their grievances on Amazon's user review page, this "censorship" (yep, I stand behind those sarcastic quotation marks wholeheartedly) doesn't hurt, hinder, impede, delegitimize or undermine Disney's excellent Blu-ray release in any way. I understand the argument, particularly in principle, and even commend those who would like to see the film presented in its original incarnation without any "edited" footage (those quotation marks are sincere). But to chastise and boycott an entire release over such a small issue -- especially a release as marvelous as this one -- is akin to cutting off your nose to spite your face. Take a breath, put things in perspective and enjoy.


Fantasia / Fantasia 2000 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There's no two ways about it: Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 sound magnificent. Boasting two impeccably mastered, utterly absorbing DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround tracks, each film surpasses expectation, drawing the listener into every whirlwind dervish and swirling symphony the pair have to offer. Strings rustle beneath a storm of horns, trumpets pierce lumbering bass lines, timpani tum-tum-tums hang heavily over fleeting frenzies of flutes, and tumbling harps stir gracefully within the majesty of it all. Gripping melodies roar and relent, the orchestra fills the front channels convincingly, and sound spreads around the room with natural ease. Throughout each animated segment, LFE presence is profound and powerful, rear speaker activity enhances the illusion of sitting in the middle of a concert hall, and dynamics are bold, brazen and breathtaking. It's enough to leave the hair on your neck and arms bristling in the sonic breeze. Meanwhile, the various introductions feature crystal clear voices, and the interaction between the narrators and the conductors never falter. Likewise, directionality is subtle but precise, pans are wholly transparent, and the whole of both experiences is perfectly engaging. Audiophiles of all ages will be thrilled with the results.
