Fantasia - The Sorcerer's Apprentice

Walt Disney devised The Sorcerer's Apprentice, based on Goethe's balladic poem Der Zauberlehrling Fantasia is a 1940 American animated feature produced by Walt Disney and the third film in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series. Fantasia features animation set to classical music and no dialogue.

As part of this short project the children listened to the music, recognising any instruments they could, created story boards to retell the story behind it, created a short film and finally composed and performed a short piece to accompany the original soundtrack.
