The Sorcerer's Apprentice - Close Up

A couple of new photos have debuted online of Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel in Disney’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. The movie will be a family fantasy film, (the three f’s), that will include some elements from the classic animated feature Fantasia. Over at Fanboyz, they’ve found some new images of the actors in character on the set.

Check out the photos…

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is a modern take on the Disney tale that’s set in Manhattan, New York. In the film Cage plays a contemporary sorcerer who leaves everything in the hands of his apprentice (Baruchel) when he goes on a trip. The novice is given several chores and tasks to perform in his absence but uses magic to get a broomstick to do them for him. Things go from good to bad when the inanimate object begins to develop a mind of it’s own.

This may be inappropriate to say, but the hair on Nicolas Cage in this movie is terrible! It’s blindingly bad. His wig game hasn’t been up to par for the past few years, along with the scripts he’s been accepting. Hopefully this movie doesn’t fall prey to the critical scorn that his previous work has.

What do you think of the new photos from The Sorcerer’s Apprentice?
