For the record, mine is Bambi. But everyone's entitled to their opinion:
Everyone has their personal favorite Disney movie, and you can make an argument for most of the classics as being “the best.”
But the opinion of Diane Disney-Miller, the eldest daughter of Walt Disney, probably carries a bit more weight than others, and when asked where the 1940 Fantasia ranks, she didn’t hesitate: “It’s got to be tops.”
“Because of everything involved, the music, the effects, the animation,” she said Oct. 20 at The Walt Disney Family Museum, which is celebrating its one-year anniversary this month. “I think it has to be at the pinnacle.”
Looking at the home video treatment by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, you know the studio also realizes how special this film is: The Nov. 30 four-disc Blu-ray Disc combo pack ($45.99) includes both Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 on DVD, the seven-minute, Oscar-nominated short Destino (a collaboration between Walt Disney and Salvador Dali), all-new documentaries, commentaries, interactive art galleries and screen savers, BD Live features and more.
“It’s a great package,” Disney-Miller said. “It is really timeless, and it was made well enough to stand the test of time.”
