Flying whales, flamingoes with yo-yos and Mickey Mouse with a dancing mop — it could only be “Fantasia 2000,” the eagerly-awaited IMAX sequel to Walt Disney’s 1940 cartoon and concert film, “Fantasia.” The film’s world premiere took place over the weekend at New York’s Carnegie Hall, with Henry Kissinger, Michael Eisner and Quincy Jones (who also appears onscreen to introduce sequences in the film, along with Bette Midler, Steve Martin, James Earl Jones, Penn and Teller and Angela Lansbury) in attendance. Also there was Lisa Ling, of TV’s “The View,” who, when asked what Disney character she’d like to be, told PEOPLE Online: “Snow White. She’s just the most beautiful cartoon character ever.” Her “View” cohort Star Jones said, “It’s not even close! I’d be Cinderella! So the prince would come and I’d be living in the castle and he’d be really cute.” And finally, actor Tony-winning (“Cabaret”) Alan Cumming, who played Rooster in the recent TV version of “Annie” and soon will be seen on the big screen in “Titus”: “I’d like to be the scampy dog in ‘Lady and the Tramp.’ Dumbo is my favorite, but Pocahontas is a close second.”
