“FANTASIA” is without a doubt the greatest animated film in history. While highly acclaimed and well-known today, it was not terribly popular when it was first released. Disney’s idea of “FANTASIA” was to take great pieces of music and draw animated sequences that match them. In doing so, it reverses the purpose of a movie’s score; the movie serves and matches the music, not the other way around. The lack of plot really didn’t matter though as you became immersed in a sumptuous visual and audio experience, unlike anything before or since. This is a rare opportunity to obtain one of the scarce original early re-release film posters and offered here is an original UK quad movie poster from the 1961 British release. Like all Disney campaigns of the time the advertising merchandise is of the highest quality which is fully in evidence here; stunning detailed artwork (unique to the UK release) with stone-litho printing and deep rich colours that literally ‘pop’ from the paper. Truly outstanding and one that is far better appreciated in the flesh than can ever be shown in a photograph. Originally folded (as issued) this unrestored film poster presents superbly and is a fine example of rare and collectable original movie memorabilia for a much respected animated Walt Disney classic.

Trivia: This is Steven Spielberg‘s favorite animated movie of all time.
