Fantasia 2000 at the El Cap

Just took a random look at the website for The El Capitan Theatre and saw that they are bringing Fantasia 2000 back for an eleven-day run beginning February 18th. Each screening will be opened with a showing of the Walt Disney-Salvador Dali-Roy E. Disney impressionistic short, Destino. On February 17th they will be holding a Special Filmmaker Panel before the initial screening.

Destino fits right in with the Fantasia theme because it was going to either be used in the original Fantasia or a planned update to it that never actually went through, then its completion was brought about as a byproduct of the production of Fantasia 2000, then was planned to be part of Fantasia 2006, but that never happened either.
