Fantasia is the third animated movie produced by Walt Disney Productions. It was first released on November 13, 1940. It was originally released by itself instead of RKO Pictures, which was the distributor of Disney from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, until Peter Pan.

Fantasia contains eight classical music pieces. One of them is from Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring. It tells the story of life on Earth until the extinction of the dinosaurs. Another famous work that appears in the movie is Johann Sebastian Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor for organ. The most famous classical music piece in this film is Paul Dukas, The Sorcerer's Apprentice. This is Mickey Mouse's most famous role.

A sequel to this movie, Fantasia 2000, was released in 1999.
