Fantasia was originally released in 1940, coming after such big hits as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Pinocchio. A beautifully made film that blends live action and classic animation with classical music as only “the Magic of Disney” can. Though it wasn’t considered a huge success, at first, it was the first film shown with stereophonic sound and even today still ranks 5th in AFI top ten animation films http://www.afi.com/10top10/
