Overview
For the first time ever, Fantasia is available on DVD in a special, uncut edition! Restored and remastered, this special 60th anniversary DVD truly captures Walt Disney's unique inspiration – complete with the intermission and narration – which have not been included in the film since its original theatrical release!

Fantasia created the mold for blending music and movie magic into an exhilarating movie-going experience. Unforgettable images are brought to life by some of the world's best music – the comedy of Mickey Mouse as a troublemaking sorcerer's apprentice, the beauty of winged fairies and cascading snowflakes, even plump hippos performing ballet in tutus!

With this special edition DVD, you are invited on a behind-the-scenes look at Fantasia. Included is a compilation of audio interviews with Walt Disney spanning three decades, much of which has never been heard, as well as insightful commentaries by Roy E. Disney and others whose talents have contributed to the Fantasia legacy.

Never before has this masterpiece looked and sounded better than in this 60th anniversary edition DVD. Enjoy the history, the sounds, the sheer excitement that is Fantasia!
