Fantasia is a truly unique movie that combines beautiful music with interpretive animation The movies music is exquisite but one would expect no less form the Philadelphia Orchestra who at the time specialized in such classical works as preformed in this movie The songs were written well but one would also expect this because they were written by musical geniuses such as Mozart and Bach and are some of their more popular works There is no disputing these two things but what of Disneys interpretation of these classical pieces The music selections were good because most are well known to all but on the other hand since people have probably heard these pieces before they already have formulated their own pictures to go along with the music they might disagree with what Disneys thoughts Fantasia may have been technologically advanced at the time but it fails to come any where close to todays animated movies You can tell the obvious difference in the color and movement of the animation The color seems to be dull not rich and contrasting like one would expect from a modern Disney movie The animation is a little stiff and lacks a life-like flow at times Fantasia is separated into eight different songs with a intermission with an educational cartoon about sound waves Toccata and Fugue by Bach Disney points out that this song was absolute music and had no story line and I guess they didnt bother trying to come up with one Shapes and colors flow with the music the music well but was not very creative and for the most part rather dull Nutcracker Suite by Tchaikovsky Disney was wise to stay away from a nutcracker plot and stick with the original purpose of the song which was to portray the four seasons This section was pretty entertaining and the dancing mushrooms and ice-skating fairies were rather amusing The Sorcerers Apprentice
