Ranking Disney: #20 – Fantasia 2000 (1999)

I love the idea of Fantasia. It’s simply just – here’s music, let’s animate it. And you get three things from these movies: first, you get great classical music, which is being introduced to children (and, to an extent, everyone). Then, you get brilliant animation, specifically my favorite kind of Disney animation – abstract animation, where they get to get as visually creative as they want to be (which, when you look at Disney, is always when they do their best work). And third, you get movies that are pretty much impossible to be considered bad. How can you call a Fantasia movie bad? It’s just music and animation.

So no matter how much I feel like I should rank this film lower, I can’t do it. Because when I watch it, I love it more than most other Disney movies.
