An update of the original film with new interpretations of great works of classical music.
The new millennial version of Disney's 1940 groundbreaking fusion of animation and classical music includes seven new segments and keeps one from the original film (the wonderful "Sorcerer's Apprentice," starring Mickey Mouse). Despite the science-fiction title, "Fantasia 2000" is more backward-looking than futuristic. Movie star introductions lend the film the feel of a deluxe corporate promotion (Holden).
