    • Willow / Music soundtrack: As Willow begins her attempted will-o-the-wisp spell, the background music quietly changes to the beginning strains of Dukas's "Sorcerer's Apprentice" (or something very much like it). When the will-o-the-wisp first splits in two, the rising strings o' peril from the piece come in just as they would for Mickey's brooms splitting exponentially out of control. This also disproves the earlier notion that Fantasia can't be scary.
