Sneak Peek New "Sorcerer's Apprentice" Posters

Sneak Peek new posters, supporting Disney's upcoming live-action fantasy feature "The Sorcerer's Apprentice", opening in North America July 16.

The first poster 'The Wizard', features actor Gregory Woo:

"...'Sun Lok' (Woo) is an ancient, but perpetually young, Chinese sorcerer and 'Morganian'. When he’s unlocked from his 'Grimhold' by 'Horvath', Sun Lok wreaks havoc in Chinatown during a lively festival by materializing a fearsome fire-breathing dragon..."

The second poster 'The Villain', features actor Alfred Molina:

"...'Maxim Horvath', (Molina) was, along with 'Balthazar Blake' and 'Veronica', a disciple of 'Merlin' and a force of good more than a thousand years ago. But their mutual love for Veronica split the colleagues apart and Horvath has instead become an ally of the wicked 'Morgana', who murdered Merlin and is seeking to conquer the world with her minions. He and Balthazar have battled through the ages, finally bringing their conflict to modern-day New York City..."

"The Sorcerer's Apprentice" is directed by Jon Turteltaub and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, starring Nicolas Cage, Jay Baruchel and Monica Bellucci.

The new film is a 're-imagining' of the 'Sorcerer's Apprentice' segment appearing in Disney's 1940 full-length theatrical cartoon "Fantasia".

The film also adapts supernatural themes from the 1890's symphonic poem by Paul Dukas and 1797 ballad by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

Premise of the new 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.
