Rated: Universal, suitable for all Format: VHS Tape Fantasia [VHS] : Disney Fantasia reborn

Any1 who has viewed this as a child or imagining of seeing. Get this edition and not the more recent one as it misses some of the first attributes out.

Disney’s ‘fantasia’ has been exhibited in multiple versions and jogging periods considering the fact that its initial restricted highway-show launch in november, 1940 making use of the modern multi-channel fantasound seem technique. That original model ran 126 minutes as well as an intermission. Each of the animated segments was released by dwell footage of orchestral musicians and deems taylor’s narration. When rko put the movie into typical launch in 1942, it was shaved to 88 minutes, deleting several of the animated segments and the deems taylor dwell footage. (disney imagined this butchered the film and refused to participate in its slicing. ) the 1946 re-launch restored all of the animated segments and an abbreviated version of the reside deems taylor footage. At one hundred fifteen minutes, this turned the typical edition for further re-releases, as well as the 1990 fiftieth anniversary restoration (which also includes at the stop footage of the musicians leaving the stage–initially screened in advance of the intermission–about which are run complete movie and restoration credits). The 1990 restoration edition was introduced on videocassette in 1991. The 2000 us domestic release on dvd, celebrating the film’s 60th anniversary, and the 2010 us blu-ray remastering, restore for the initial time, all of the dwell footage and deems taylor’s whole narration, bringing the film’s jogging time back to a hundred twenty five minutes. Sad to say, the sound aspects for the whole live footage could not be recovered or were not usable, so all of this content (such as orchestral tuning background and ambient seem) was re-recorded with corey burton dubbing deems taylor.

Getting been an asia enthusiast considering that day just one but never ever viewing them dwell i considered the dvd of this concert would be great adequate, how mistaken i was the blu ray is even superior. From the (relatively embarrassing) opening to the music we all know and like it captures the essence of a stay asia functionality. This disc is especially very good at providing an perception into the a lot of unforgettable hits you in no way understood asia users were involved in, fanfare for the widespread gentleman, video clip killed the radio star all heading in the direction of a bumper best hits bundle live and loud in your entrance place in wonderful hello-def. Masters of guitar, keyboards and of program the three week drum solo each individual musician is effectively practised in the art and their potential shines by means of even immediately after quite a few years on the street and they gell with each other to re generate some of the ideal and legendary tracks of the 80’s.

Bought to exchange old movie, daughter loved this movie though has by no means found it all the way via as relaxes so a lot she even now drops off to snooze, terrific movie, advise to other individuals as family film.

A vintage specifically of system the broom and bucket scene.

Fantasia [VHS] : Having had the opportunity to watch both dvd versions of one of first animated classics from disney and as a former (now retired) member of disney management staff, it is strikingly obvious that the charm and production of how we (of a certain age) remember so fondly the animation, and it is somehow lost that in the newer disney releases, albeit digitally remastered, with the loss of widescreen vision, the over emphasis of sharp lines, etc. Buy the original release if possible – you will not be disappointed.

I appreciated seeing the film yet again, and listening to the new music, but there was considerably stuff i did not want, and i could not skip from just one merchandise to a further.

When the children learnt what relatives ties and values are. When all people sat observing and performing items to-gether. To-times modern-day modern society dont know what it is like obtaining respect as we were introduced up. These old periods are disappearing and at the time gone will under no circumstances be observed again. So remember to film administrators when producing films halt the foul swearing and get with it as you are environment the pace for your own generations to arrive together and generate and they will find out from you now.

In my view, this is disney’s very best perform. The animation, the music, the ambiance, the creativeness and the overall experience this film gives me is just remarkable. I actually get pleasure from all of the segments, but my personal favourites are the toccata and fugue, evening on bald mountain/ave maria segments, especially ave maria, which is quite feasible the most visually hanging and emotionally strong segment ever set in an animated movie. Looking at this movie again just now, i can say that it can be my third favourite film of all time, ideal powering vertigo and 2001: a area odyssey.

1 of my two toddlers enjoyed it, the other located it boring. It could be they were way too youthful, or it could be that grownups enjoy it extra than children. My spouse and i had been mesmerised by fantasia and watched it in one particular sitting down. I even uncovered myself, at one stage, dancing a walz all-around the sitting room with my a few 12 months previous. Mainly because they perform music we all know and really like, and add on the most surprisingly colourful, wonderfully drawn, cartoon stories, and the mix is so exclusive that i question why they will not re -launch it, both in the cinemas or live performance halls (comprehensive orchestra, photograph backdrop).

It is really generally the exact same issue: one loved a movie that just one noticed in one’s youth, and in my scenario youth is considerably guiding, and seeing it all over again in later lifestyle potential customers to disappointment. Of couse, paul dukas’s apprenti sorcier remains a masterpiece but quite a few other passages, like the dance of the hippopotamuses appeared to me ludicrous and of pretty lousy flavor. I also beloved the previous passage, i.

Still like this soon after looking at it for the 1st time in the fifties.

Anything at all by asia is fantastic in my eyes (and ears). This is an exceptional recording featuring the first users.

This dvd took me correct back again to my childhood. Even though the disney artists’ interpretation of the new music could vary from the composer’s interpretation, or your very own, you’ve got acquired to confess they’ve completed a marvellous career of bringing the audio and the people to everyday living. A good deal of fantastic audio, laughs and tears, too.

Even though increasing up i under no circumstances appreciated this master piece, but now i can definitely say i appreciate this film. Entire of walt disney’s now popular cartoon people incuding the one that commenced it all mickey mouse in his most famous job. The songs to accompany this film is also amazing and when blended is a feast for the eyes and ears. Delivery of merchandise was just before schedule by amazon and arrived in very good ailment.

Superb, it is a privilege to see and hear these kinds of a great creation of a excellent common like this.

As constantly with disney productions this dvd is truly fantastici acquired this for my partner but i did invest in the highly-priced just one and not the cheaper japanese variations everybody looks to complain about. I suppose you get what you spend for and absolutely nothing arrives free of charge. On this dvd you really get extra than the initial in that there are added scenes not even incorporated in the first movie. My lover enjoyed it whilst i went out fishing so despite the fact that i myself cannot admit to have observed it all i did see the beginning and it appeared to be perfectly up to regular.

Hadn’t found it since i was younger and great to see once again in these kinds of a amazing duplicate. An all time vintage that is a ought to for any disney fan and which shouldn’t be missed by everyone else. Unforgettable, of course, for mickey mouse in the sorcerer’s apprentice.

A classic dianey film that stands the exam of time. The properly known cleaning of the kitchen area is delightful.

Not at all sure about the subtitles – all you will need to do is select the english language variation.

This is my beloved motion picture of my complete lifetime. This is a wonderful transfer and restoration, but disney really should have bundled, in addition of the aged audio soundtrack, the new electronic recording designed by irwin kostal. The previous sound is a small less that ok. They need to have extra the new electronic recording which i located is superior that the stokowski recording created in 1939. Sorry but disney’s goofed on this a person once more. It would have been a awesome selection for this problem.

    Fantasia is easily disney’s most experimental “film”. The animation studio only just started becoming popular back in 1940, and so did the medium of film. Moving pictures edited sequentially to create a cohesive story, it was an art form that remained questionable as to whether or not people would leave their houses. Walt disney himself decided to push the boundaries by making fantasia. Typically music accompany film however the “house of mouse” decided to reverse it by crafting film to accompany music. Six short animations providing imagery for the orchestral pieces of music that power these pictures. Safe to say this was incredibly experiment. There’s no dialogue (aside from deems taylor introducing each segment), just a symphony or classic pieces conducted by leopold stokowski. The concept immediately had me hooked for the first few segments. One consisting of a montage of famous pieces from tchaikovsky’s ‘the nutcracker’, mickey mouse returning in arguably the most memorable segment of the program titled ‘the sorcerer’s apprentice’ and from there we have multiple tonal changes with each segment.

    Fantasia (1940) is disney’s 3rd animated feature film. The film consists of eight animated segments which are set to pieces of classical music conducted by leopold stokowski. Seven of these segments are performed by the philadelphia orchestra. Music critic & composer deems taylor acts as the film’s master of ceremonies, providing a live-action introduction to each animated segment. It was said that fantasia was a misunderstood masterpiece at the time of its release. Disney’s groundbreaking film combines both classical music and stunning animation to create something entirely mesmerising. Each musical cue is accounted for in the imagery, and the mood of each piece is captured perfectly in the segments. No words needed, just the beauty in what you see and hear, that’s the reason why fantasia stands the test of time. In addition, it is great to see a stepping stone to how disney has gone since the humble beginnings seen in this 1940 classic. Fantasia is one of my favorite classic disney films.
