Fantasia SAL – Week 5

from The Nutcracker Suite
by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Fantasia fun fact: Disney wanted Fantasia to be an extraordinary film with extraordinary effects. He suggested 3-D effects, filming the entire movie in widescreen, and even using olfactory effects, such as wafting perfume through the theatre as the wildflowers danced during the “Nutcracker Suite” segment. While none of these concepts came to be, the ever innovative Disney was years ahead of his time and all of those effects were later used in many films.
