Fantasia was by far the most experimental animated film to come from Walt Disney, but most definitely was animation created by the foremost animators of their time, namely Disney's "Nine Old Men". One thing Disney envisaged was that Fantasia would never truly be "finished" and that it would be an ever evolving piece of cinematic art. Following up on this line of thinking, Fantasia 2000 was produced, but unfortunately less than a box office success despite its stellar cast.

From official release/information:

Product Description:
Walt Disney's animated musical masterpiece is an extravaganza of sight and sound - now brilliantly restored for the first time ever in high definition! Blu-ray technology finally allows you to experience Fantasia - and Fantasia 2000, the triumphant classic it inspired - the way Walt envisioned! Plus, for the first time ever on Blu-ray, experience the 2003 Academy Award-nominated animated short Destino - the extraordinary collaboration between Walt Disney and legendary artist Salvador Dali!

Revealing new bonus features and commentary bring the Fantasia experience to life, allowing generations of moviegoers all over the world to enjoy this timeless classic like never before. See the music come to life, hear the pictures burst into song and experience the excitement that is Fantasia over and over again.
