Fantasia 2000 brings to fruition Walt Disney's personal vision of reinventing his bold 1940 masterpiece Fantasia. Sixty years after the release of Disney's classic experiment in sight and sound, a new generation of Disney animators and filmmakers offer an exciting showcase for today's audiences as they visually interpret classical compositions by Beethoven, Shostakovich, Respighi, Gershwin, Dukas, Saint-Saens, Elgar and Stravinsky. Originally conceived as a "repertoire program" with changing musical selections, this newest incarnation features seven new sequences and one returning favorite from the original Fantasia. World-renowned conductor James Levine takes up the baton and embraces all the latest technological tools and innovations to tell its stories and create breathtaking imagery. This production is under the personal supervision of Roy Edward Disney, Vice chairman of the Walt Disney Studios, who serves as Chairman of Walt Disney Feature Animation.
