We are also one month away from the long awaited unveiling of Fantasia 2000. This is another momentous first for animation as Disney releases this high profile film on IMAX screens before going to "normal" cinemas. Big screens are by no means a fixture in every neighborhood but are becoming more prevalent. It is fitting that Disney has made this move with a special film that is well suited to the big screen. I am sure it will bring more people to the local IMAX theater, build word of mouth for the film and a following for animation in this new arena. This month we continue our coverage of Fantasia 2000 with two articles by respected animation historian and writer, Charles Solomon. Both "Rhapsody in Blue: Fantasia 2000's Jewel in the Crown" and "The Goldbergs: Two Peas in a Pod" take a closer look at the "Rhapsody in Blue" sequence of Fantasia 2000.
Enjoy your last month of 1999 folks and I'll see you in 2000.
Until Next Time,
