On this day: the premiere of Fantasia

Fantasia-poster-1940Fantasia is a 1940 American animated film produced by Walt Disney and released by Walt Disney Productions.

Disney’s ground-breaking animated film, Fantasia, premiered on the 13th of November, 1940.

At the time of its release it was not really a success, and because of World War Two it was unable to be released into the European market and so lost a lot of money.

However, over time the film has become widely recognised and appreciated. As of 2012 it was the 22nd highest-grossing film in the history of the United States.
