Walt Disney Pictures has released a new featurette promoting their upcoming fantasy epic, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. The film stars Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel as the title character in this modern day adaptation of the animated classic Fantasia. The video centers on the battle between good and evil and the fate of mankind that rests solely on the young and frail shoulders of Baruchel’s character. Check it out below…
In the film, Cage plays a contemporary sorcerer who seeks and finds an apprentice (Baruchel) to help him combat an impeding danger. Alfred Molina plays the main villain, an evil sorcerer who believes the world centers around two things, power and control.
In the featurette we see how the world of good and evil collide in modern day Manhattan. Cage is at one end of the spectrum, Molina’s at the other, and Baruchel’s in the middle. His character has to learn how to master his magic and use it for good. Italian actress Monica Belucci is also featured in the film as a sorceress even though her character isn’t highlighted in this video.
