Fantasia (1940)

Samuel Armstrong, James Algar, Bill Roberts, Paul Satterfield, Ben Sharpsteen, David D. Hand, Hamilton Luske, Jim Handley, Ford Beebe, T. Hee, Norman Ferguson and Wilfred Jackson direct this animated anthology movie set to classical music.

Walt Disney’s boldest experiment but probably the most mealy mouthed in terms of entertainment. The iconic Sorcerer’s Apprentice (starring Mickey) and genuinely creepy Night On Bald Mountain finale are pretty spectacular but rest are drawn out – neato visual ideas that do not stretch to sync up with their orchestral pieces. It is never a Disney I’m particularly pumped about revisiting. The amount of times we paused it or found ourselves on our phones during this rewatch were pretty damning. Not sure I’d seek it out again unless there was a viewing project that made a rewatch essential.
