I had the pleasure this past weekend at reliving a classic Disney Tale on Bluray. and Fantasia 2000 are out of the Disney vault and on Blu-ray/DVD.
Let me just say if you don’t have a bluray player you need to get one! The picture quality for any movie is stunning! Watching Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 at my house is like watching it at the theaters. LCD Big Screen and Surround Sound is the only way to watch a movie.
It’s not very often I get to crank the system up, as most times a Disney TV Show or My Little Ponies is playing on the tv for my little one. It was nice for Daddy to crank it up and watch one of my favorite Disney Movies growing up.
I can’t stress enough the quality of these films! All the bonus content you get on the bluray is well worth the extra cost. Among those Blu-ray special features is the highly requested Academy Award® nominated short Destino. Available for the first time ever on Blu-ray, the seven minute film is the result of a unique collaboration between Walt Disney and Salvador Dali begun in 1946, but put on hold due to studio financial concerns.
In 2003, Roy E. Disney worked with a team of modern day animators to complete the film as a tribute to Walt’s pioneering artistic vision. Accompanying the highly anticipated short is an all-new feature length documentary entitled “Dali & Disney: A Date With Destino,” which explores the origins of the relationship between Disney and Dali, their collaboration on Destino, and ultimately how the film came to fruition so many years after itsinception.
