Get Swept Away With "The Sorcerer's Apprentice"

"The Sorcerer's Apprentice" is the upcoming Disney feature directed by Jon Turteltaub and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.

The fantasy film stars Nicolas Cage, Jay Baruchel and Monica Bellucci.

"Apprentice" is a live action 're-imagining' of the 'Sorcerer's Apprentice' segment appearing in Disney's 1940 feature length cartoon "Fantasia", that in turn adapted the 1890's symphonic poem by Paul Dukas and a 1797 Johann Wolfgang von Goethe ballad.

Set for release July 16, 2010, premise of the film follows an average college student (Baruchel) reluctantly recruited to work for a 'sorcerer' (Cage), who gives him a crash course in the art and science of magic, preparing him for battle against the 'forces of darkness' in modern day Manhattan.
