I did use the Search Feature and i dont see any post about this so i will give it a shot. 72 years ago today, November 13, 1940, Walt Disney's 3rd Animated Feature, FANTASIA, was released. Originally titled, THE CONCERT FEATURE, it is considered an innovation during its time due to the development and use of "Fantasound" (precursor of Surround Sound) for its roadshow release. It is a combination of the talents of Disney Animators, conductor Leopold Stokowski and Philadelphia Orchestra and Deems Taylor. One of the famous segment, the Sorcerer Apprentice, was planned to be a Silly Symphony short. But, due to its cost, Sorcerer Apprentice became part of a feature film, together with 7 other segments. What is your Favorite Fantasia segment?
I will always have fond memories of my grandma taking me to see Fantasia when I was around 8. So when Disney rereleased the movie in 1990 I took my husband who I was dating at the time to see it. He fell asleep during the movie. I guess it wasn't for him. Thanks for the post.😄 - RadiatorSprings4Ever   942.9 #167 11-14-12 12:08AM Like(1)  Reply

Still one of my favorite Disney productions! Although I wasn't terribly impressed with the "Sorcerers Apprentice" with Nicholas Cage. - DisneyDavidEMT   1610.3 #86 11-13-12 11:24PM Like  Reply
i never watched the live sorcerer apprentice, but i'm glad they incorporate the brooms there - otilegna  1855.8 #72 11-13-12 11:39PM
The brooms and the mops were the best scene in the live version. - DisneyDavidEMT  1610.3 #86 11-14-12 12:24AM

for me, it is hard to say my fave segment. but the one that gives me the goosebumps is Mussorgsky's Night on the Bald Mountain, featuring Chernabog :) - otilegna   1855.8 #72 11-13-12 11:50PM Like  Reply

The dance of the hour was ALWAYS my favorite! Remembering when i was little, i asked my mom for a pink tutu so i can dance like the hippo. Hahaha. I always thought she was cute, especially how ben ali gator admired her lol this scene will never get old for me, wait, the movie itself!!!! - BrinnieMouse182   174.2 #2207 11-14-12 3:45AM Like  Reply
That is cute :) - otilegna  1855.8 #72 11-14-12 12:55PM
I always loved the ancient Greek one with the drunk man/goat, then Zeus throwing lighting bolts. That one was my favorite! - lovetheland7   175.1 #2194 11-14-12 6:06AM Like  Reply

It's the only Disney movie I've never finished watching. At out the parts I've seen I love the dancing hippos - Minderella   299.1 #832 11-14-12 8:26AM Like  Reply
I have no idea about which scene is my favorite. I love them all. What I remember most about this movie is putting the tape into the VCR, getting my 3 babies their pillows and blankets to watch it, and the next thing I knew was 2 hour naps for all of us. I still have the tape, and can't wait to share it with our grandson. - Sugarbuzz   168.4 #2306 11-14-12 9:11AM Like  Reply
Awww. I will say the Vhs version are more nice compare to the BluRay version (even if they try to make it as the roadshow version) - otilegna  1855.8 #72 11-14-12 10:41AM
Thanks so much for posting this! Fantasia is my favorite film! (I'm a music major.) So neat to find out it was released on my birthday. And we are birthday buddies too! - JamieFaye   199.5 #1897 11-14-12 10:45AM Like  Reply
Ohhhh sweet! Yeah i guess that is also one reason why i love fantasia - otilegna  1855.8 #72 11-14-12 12:37PM
