Fantasia SAL – Week 6

from The Nutcracker Suite
by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Fantasia fun fact: Disney had the idea to re-release Fantasia every year with a few new songs. In 1941, Walt and his team created eight new additional sequences for the film. Some of the sequences were put to Wagner’s “The Ride of the Valkyries” and Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Flight of the Bumblebees”. Sadly, this never came to fruition. But, these scenes along with a few others were used to create a sequel, Fantasia 2000.
