PINES OF ROME
Stunning three-dimensional computer animation is used to bring life to a pod of whales that miraculously take flight when a supernova explodes above their iceberg-laden habitat in Walt Disney Pictures' animated extravaganza "Fantasia/2000." Director Hendel Butoy drew inspiration from Resphigi's dramatic composition and noted, "It felt like the music just took off. It just soared. Our first objective was to find an idea that had to do with flight. One of our artists came up with an illustration of cloud-like images in the sky like the ones a child might imagine seeing. One drawing in particular of a whale just stood out and sparked the entire story. The music itself is lively and fun in the beginning, slower and more melancholy in the middle, and has a triumphant march at the end. The challenge was to structure a story or a concept with whales with that piece of music in mind."

POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCE, MARCHES 1, 2, 3 & 4
Donald Duck has always been a bit envious of Mickey's star status and now, after 60 years, he finally gets equal billing. In this entertaining episode of Walt Disney Pictures' animated extravaganza "Fantasia/2000," the highly flappable duck takes on the role of Noah's assistant and finds himself leading a procession of animal couples onto the ark. When he becomes separated from his own better half, Daisy Duck, confusion follows along with much pomp and some comical circumstance. Francis Glebas directs this segment of the film, which features rich classic-style animation. The special musical arrangement by Peter Schickele utilizes parts from four of Elgar's popular marches to create this exciting rendition.
