Being an artist wanting for an animation career, I remember seeing Fantasia as the actual first Disney movie I was taken to. Now, like Fantasia inspired so many of us to become artists, Fantasia 2000 looks to bring even more people who want to dance act and draw their way onto the screen. This book is a masterpiece, giving detailed descriptions, beautiful conceptual and finshed art, as well as insight into Roy E Disney's plans for Fantasia 2000 and Conductor James Levine's joy in being a part of a tradition. The book has everything, from the abstaract beauty of Beethoven's 5th symphony, the Al Hirschfeld stylings of New York to Rhapsody in BLue, and even Shostakovich's Concerto no 2 to the works of the Steadfast Tin Soldier. If you see this film, or love the soundtrack, I recommend this book for you. who knows, the images may inspire your son, daughter, niece, nephew, etc. to take up an art career.
