Most of the movie didn't grab me, but the Firebird suite absolutely blew my mind with it's grace and power.
The first Fantasia is a masterpiece, and the segments in this film, while generally good and never bad, only match the original's with the beautiful Firebird finale (and the Sorcerer's Apprentice, but that doesn't count because it's just repeated from the first film). Honourable mentions to the Tin Soldier and Rhapsody in Blue. The celebrity cameos are unhelpful and lend it a variety-show feel.
It just doesn't feel as special as the original. This is more kid friendly than the classic Fantasia. The segments are shorter and faster paced. But it rushes along at too fast a pace. It feels like each segment is trying to be a cute cartoon. But the animation is very good and it's a better than average animated feature (which is what you expect from Disney).
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
