Fantasia Continued...indeed!

Here we have a case of the marketing department cart getting ahead of the animation studio horse. This early 90's magazine ad warns us of our LAST chance to see the original Fantasia IN ANY FORM...EVER! It also promises us a new flick in 1996 called Fantasia Continued that will replace the original masterpiece FOREVER! I'm afraid all the hype was about as pointless as an Orange Level Homeland Security Warning. Walt Disney's film still lives on in DVD and we never did get `96's Continued film. However, four years later Fantasia 2000 debuted and now the two films happily co-exist in the same world.

The folks at Disney have been creating public excitement for their films long before they extended Hannah Montana's stay at the multiplex.
