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 Stavinski's The Rite of Spring. It tells the story of life on Earth until the extinction of the dinosaurs. The Tyrannosaurus in Fantasia is the central dinosaur.

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