In this update of Disney's masterpiece film mixture of animation and music, new interpretations of great works of music are presented. It begins with an abstract battle of light and darkness set to the music of Beethoveen's Fifth Symphony. Then we see the adventures of a humpback whale calf and his pod set to "The Pines of Rome." Next is the humorous story of several lives in 1930's New York City, scored with "Rhapsody in Blue." Following is a musical telling of the fairy tale, "The Steadfast Tin Soldier" set to Dmitri Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 2. Then a goofy flamingo causes havoc in his flock with his yo-yo to the tune of the finale of "Carnival of the Animals." This is followed by the classic sequence from the original film, "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" starring Mickey Mouse and followed by "Pomp and Circumstance" starring Donald Duck as a harried assistant to Noah on his Ark. Finally, we see the awesome tale of the life, death, and renewal of a forest in a sequence ...Written by

The "Carnival of the Animals" segment with the yo-yo-playing flamingo was originally conceived with ostriches in mind by Joe Grant, 91-year-old head of story on Fantasia 2000 (1999) and the only crew member to have worked on the original Fantasia (1940). See more »
In "Pomp and Circumstance", the first time Donald takes out a picture of him and Daisy, both (in the picture) are looking towards the "camera". The next time he looks at it, Daisy is looking at him instead. See more »

[introducing the Carnival of the Animals]
These drawing boards have been the birthplace of some of the most beloved animal characters of all time. So it's no surprise that they choose for our next segment, "The Carnival of the Animals" by Camille Saint-Saëns. Here the sensitive strains of impressionistic music combine with the subtle artistry of the animator to finally answer that age old question: "What is man's relationship to nature?"

Right after the final credits, you hear Steve Martin's voice, wondering out loud if he's still on camera, then realizes it's the end of the movie. He then asks the audience, 'Can I have a ride home?' See more »
