Fantasia 2000: The Imax Experience

The limitless possibilities of music and animation provide the basis for the first theatrical feature-length animated film to be formatted for and exhibited in IMAX theaters. This historic release pays tribute to its predecessor by encoring fully restored versions of the three best-loved pieces from the 1940 original -- "The Nutcracker Suite," "Dance of the Hours," and "The Sorcerer's Apprentice." In addition, there are six new pieces set to the music of Camille Saint-Saens' "Carnival of the Animals," Ottorino Respighi's "Pines of Rome," Dmitri Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 2, Beethoven's Symphony No. 5, Sir Edward Elgar's "Pomp and Circumstance" and Igor Stravinsky's "The Firebird." The film is described as "a labor of love which expands upon a bold experiment in sight and sound that was started over six decades ago."
