Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For the millions of Fantasia's fans, here is the story of its creation — documented with character sketches, paintings, models, and actual animation frames from the film. Author John Culhane brings the reader into Walt Disney's story meetings and conferences by means of quotes taken from the Studio transcripts in those halcyon early days.

A throng of brilliantly imagined Disney characters romp through the book: dancing Chinese mushrooms; mythological flying horses; dinosaurs; hippopotamus ballerinas; seductively undulating goldfish and villainous alligators; and everyone's favorite — Mickey Mouse. The marvelously colorful settings illustrate Disney's assumption that for every beautiful melody there is a beautiful picture.

Review:

"Disney's original intent in making Fantasia, according to Culhane, was to produce a quality musical that the public would respond to; in doing so he forever stretched the limits of what animation could do. This volume is a testament to that movie classic, lavishly illustrated with sketches, storyboards and frames that reveal the creative process at work." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"For any fan of Fantasia...this book is a must. It is above all, as it should be, a picture book where we can find those images that first stunned and delighted us a long time ago." Ray Bradbury, Los Angeles Herald Examiner

Synopsis:

Noted film historian John Culhane tells the story behind the creation of "Fantasia", using a wealth of memorable illustrations, including actual frames from the classic film.

Walt DIsney's Fantasia is a perfectly written account of the making of this classic film. From production stills and story boards to meeting notes and conversations among the people who worked on this, John Culhane has done a magnificent job on recording the making of Fantasia.
