Fantasia 2000 is a 1999 American animated movie. It was produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and released by Walt Disney Pictures. It is a sequel to Fantasia (1940). Like the earlier movie, it has animated segments set to pieces of classical music. The Sorcerer's Apprentice is the only segment that is in both movies.

The soundtrack was performed by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra with conductor James Levine. A group of celebrities introduce each segment in live-action scenes. The celebrities include Alec Baldwin, Bette Midler, Penn & Teller, James Earl Jones, Quincy Jones and Angela Lansbury.

Fantasia 2000 was shown at Carnegie Hall on December 17, 1999. It was part of a five-city concert tour, with performances in London, Paris, Tokyo and Pasadena, California. An exclusive release in IMAX theatres followed from January 1 to April 30, 2000. It became the first animated feature-length movie in the IMAX format. Fantasia 2000 was opened in the United States on June 16, 2000. It has earned $90.8 million in gross revenue worldwide.
