I might be in the minority, but I’m really looking forward to The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.  While I’m not entirely sure what to expect from director Jon Turteltaub’s movie, based on the trailers, it look like it’s going to be a fun ride and anything that has Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel as master and apprentice has my money.

While I don’t know anyone that’s seen the finished film, the junket is this week in Los Angeles.  That means reviews will start to hit Twitter and Facebook in the middle of the week.  If I’m allowed to say what I thought, you can expect a tweet.  Until then, Disney has released a new featurette called “Fantasia: The Coolest Scene Ever” and as you might expect from the title, the filmmakers share how it all began – with an 8 minute scene of classic animation – and take us on the journey of how the film got made and the inspiration of Fantasia. Check it out after the jump:


-

Walt Disney Studios, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Jon Turteltaub, the creators of the “National Treasure” franchise, present THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE — an innovative and epic comedy adventure about a sorcerer and his hapless apprentice who are swept into the center of an ancient conflict between good and evil.

Balthazar Blake (NICOLAS CAGE) is a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (ALFRED MOLINA).  Balthazar can’t do it alone, so he recruits Dave Stutler (JAY BARUCHEL), a seemingly average guy who demonstrates hidden potential, as his reluctant protégé.  The sorcerer gives his unwilling accomplice a crash course in the art and science of magic, and together, these unlikely partners work to stop the forces of darkness.  It’ll take all the courage Dave can muster to survive his training, save the city and get the girl as he becomes THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE. The screenplay is by Matt Lopez and Doug Miro & Carlo Bernard from a screen story by Matt Lopez and Larry Konner & Mark Rosenthal.
