Question: Was Fantasia a flop?

The film, of course, is the animated masterpiece known as Fantasia (1940). Fantasia was a critical and popular failure upon release. This idea died with the films box office failure. Though it has become a very profitable picture in the 75 years since its release, it took decades to get that way.

Was Fantasia a box office hit?

With Fantasia, Disney hoped to achieve something else. “Weve got more in this medium than making people laugh,” he told his staff. The new film, he said, would “change the history of motion pictures.”

Why did Disney make Fantasia?

Disney lavished his studios resources on The Sorcerers Apprentice until the costs mounted to at least three times the normal budget for a Silly Symphony. To turn a profit, The Sorcerers Apprentice needed to be part of a full-length feature; thus Fantasia was born.
