Fantasia 2000 coloring pages

In 1940, Walt Disney released Fantasia, his third animated feature film, consisting of eight animated segments set to pieces of classical music. Initially he planned to have the film on continual release with new segments replacing older ones so audiences would never see the same film twice. The idea was dropped following the film’s initial low box office receipts and a mixed response from critics. Following preliminary work on new segments, the idea was shelved by 1942 and was not revisited for the remainder of Disney’s life. In 1980, animators Wolfgang Reitherman and Mel Shaw started preliminary work on Musicana, a feature film “mixing jazz, classical music, myths, modern art . . . following the old Fantasia format” that was to present “ethnic tales from around the world with the music of the various countries”. The project was cancelled in favor of Mickey’s Christmas Carol (1983).
