The other film is positioned to be a real breakthrough as it is backed by the power of Disney. Fantasia did not do well when it was originally released. However, Fantasia 2000 might be a different story. We now have a culture, ready, eager and waiting for every new Disney adventure...well, this one introduces new styles, experimental themes and adult vignettes mixed in with comedic, more cartoony sequences. This might be the "different" animated feature that every family in America and beyond goes to see. Fantasia 2000 is like a miniature film festival all in one sitting. Laura Schiff in "Fantasia 2000: Millennium Magic For A New Generation" describes the sequences and I think that after reading it you too will be excited about these possibilities.
As Andrew Osmond concluded in "Cartoon Movies: Acting Their Age?": "One thing that can be said for the current animation environment is that there's indeed no shortage of new potential trendsetters, and with them new hope."
Until Next Time,
