Geek Fact No.1.The Sorcerer's Apprentice is not just an upcoming Disney movie. Originally it was a poem written by Goethe in 1797. This in turn inspired Paul Dukas in 1897 to create the symphonic poem, L’apprenti du sorcier.
Geek Fact No.2.The Sorcerer's Apprentice is being used by Disney for the second time. The music featured in their 1940 movie, Fantasia. The animation told the story of the spellbound broom and bucket that go out of control and leave the Sorcerer’s Apprentice with a major clean up on his hands.
New Movie Preview. So mid-August in Europe sees the arrival of yet another Nicolas Cage fun Disney mystery. Does this guy ever stop working? He is the eponymous Master Sorcerer, Balthazar Blake, battling in modern Manhattan against the dark forces of evil wizard, Alfred Molina (Maxim Horvath) and scary illusionist, Toby Kebbel (playing Drake Stone).
To assist in this uneven contest, Balthazar recruits an unlikely and reluctant apprentice, played by Jay Baruchel. The movie charts his progress through a crash course in magical mysteries and the team’s eventual triumph, or not, over the forces of darkness poised to annex the Big Apple as their own.
Enjoy the trailer. Enjoy the movie. Speculate about Nic Cage’s annual income. Or, for that matter, just as busy Alfred Molina. It’s all part of the fun.
