Night on Bald Mountain and Ave Maria[change]

This section lacks any reference to the author of the lyrics used, Rachel Field. The singer is also absent. I will add if there are no objecitons. surfingus (talk) 13:26, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

Herman Schultheis[change]

I see that Herman Schultheis was the engineer behind the special effects.

In a movie known for the special effects maybe the guy who did all the work could be mentioned? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:38, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Schultheis, according to reports is a rather mysterious figure. He receives no credit for Fantasia. He did work for Disney at the time and left a notebook of invaluable notes and photos of Disney's production and effects processes that was recently discovered and published. His actual contribution is I think not clear. There are a number of visual effects editors who did receive credit for Fantasia and we should consider adding their names to the article in the credits section. Thanks for the interesting suggestion, Markhh (talk) 03:14, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for mentioning Herman! I'm working on developing the article a little more and includes a section on special effects and his name, as many of the effects used in Fantasia were not entirely known until the accidental discovery of his notebook behind a wall by Howard Lowery (featured in the "making of" documentary on the Fantasia DVD) in 1990.

How to see the missing pieces[change]

@Onel5969 deleted this twice as "promotional blurb". It came off a library description of the set:

The following is the publisher's description:

Documentary on the animated motion picture Fantasia (1940) and its restoration and re-release in 1990. The story of the making of the film is interspersed with interviews and commentaries by Walt Disney, conductor Leopold Stokowski, creative artists involved in the production, critics, and others, as well as substantial excerpts from the film itself. Of special interest to dancers is archival footage of the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, featuring Marge Champion, which formed the basis for the Dance of the Hours. Included in the documentary is unused footage for Debussy's Clair de lune, Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf, and the Bumble Boogie, a swing version of Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of the Bumblebee.

Actually, I deleted it once. Markhh also deleted it. For the same rationale. Publisher's descriptions are purely promotional (as they should be, from their perspective), and have no place in an encyclopedia.Onel5969 TT me 14:08, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

A sorcerer is not a wizard[change]

Wizards do not exist in this film. There is a magic user that is sorcerer who has an apprentice but that is not the same thing. I removed Category:Wizards in film from the article as there was no mention of a wizard in the article text so by WP:CATVER that category is not supported by anything in the article.
