Fantasia

 

Il 13 novembre 1940, settantanove anni fa, usciva sugli schermi americani “Fantasia”, uno dei film più famosi ed esteticamente innovativi di Disney. È un film sia d’animazione, sia musicale, composto da otto episodi accompagnati da brani di musica classica, diretti da Leopold Stokowski.

Il film iniziò come un elaborato cortometraggio delle Silly Symphonies per far recuperare popolarità al personaggio di Topolino, intitolato “L’apprendista stregone”, ma poi si trasformò in un film vero e proprio

Nell’episodio intitolato “L’apprendista stregone”, Topolino si produce con esiti catastrofici in sortilegi e stregonerie grazie al cappello magico rubato allo stregone Yen Sid (Disney scritto al contrario).

On 13 November 1940, seventy-nine years ago, “Fantasia”, one of Disney’s most famous, and aesthetically innovative films was released in US cinemas. It is an animated, as well as a musical film consisting of eight segments set to pieces of classical music, conducted by Leopold Stokowski.

The film started as an elaborate Silly Symphonies short designed as a comeback role for Mickey Mouse, who needed a boost in popularity, which titled “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”, but then it became a feature-length film.

In the segment “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”, Mickey Mouse performs spells and sorceries, with disastrous results, thanks to the magical hat stolen from the Sorcerer (Yen Sid or Disney spelled backwards).

  1. I have seen a lot of the Walt Disney movies, and I like the most Mickey Mouse series (especially the old ones 1920´s – 1960´s) and Goofy´s silly adventures; as well as most of the Disney movies like Snowhite and the Seven Dwarfs from 1937…

      1. A disneyland ho trovato uomini di una certa età pieni di spille commemorative e gadget attaccati alle camicie a mo di scout, forse ho sepolto i miei pensieri felici, ma la prossima volta ci vado vestita da fatina principessa, cercasi nostalgiche
