With two weeks left to go before we see the theatrical release for The Sorcerer’s Apprentice from Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer Productions, we wanted to offer you a little something extra. While other sites are still scrambling to show you clips we shared with you days ago, we (virtually) traveled halfway around the Earth to Walt Disney Studios Australia just so we could bring you this spankin’ new featurette (and nearly fell off the planet in the process!).
Walt Disney Studios and the Disney Channel have just released this clip of Sorcerer’s Apprentice stars Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel introducing the scene in the new film inspired by the title segment from Disney’s Fantasia in which the apprentice breaks a cardinal rule and attempts to use his new-found craft as a shortcut only to find himself knee-deep in trouble (and water).
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice from Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer opens nationwide on July 14. For all of our coverage of the film, check this bookmark.
Walt Disney Studios has just made two of its new television spots for The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Neither appears to offer much in the way of new cool footage and completely focus on the relationship between Sorcerer Balthazar (Nicolas Cage) and Apprentice Dave (Jay Baruchel), but they’re still worth a look.
‘Apprentice Wanted’ plays on the theme of the film’s tagline: the coolest ever and basically reads as a typical want ad with footage of the film tossed in for good measure.
The movie with the tagline The Coolest Job Ever introduces to us what it calls The Coolest Scene Ever in this new peek at the upcoming release from Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
Back in 1940, Mickey Mouse thrilled audiences as the Sorcerer’s Apprentice, a student of the great wizard Yensid (that’s Disney backwards), when an attempted work shortcut using magic ran afoul. Just 70 years later, the film based on that single sequence from Disney’s Fantasia pays its homage when apprentice Dave (Jay Baruchel) ignores the advice of his master Balthazar (Nicolas Cage).
It’s hard to imagine given what we’ve already seen from the new Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer joint The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, loosely based on the Fantasia segment of the same name that there could be even more F/X to ogle.
Truth is though, most of the F/X shots you’ll find in the new trailer have been seen in previously released clips, but the trailer now pays special attention to them, offering us more of the amazing sights the film has to offer. Of special note is the Wall Street Bull that temporarily takes over the Bowling Green area of Manhattan, the initial insect-ized appearance of Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina) and — of course — the homage to the film’s inspiration, the quintessential mop scene that results when the apprentice Dave (Jay Baruchel) defies the wizard Balthazar’s (Nicolas Cage) strict rule to never use magic as a shortcut.
Walt Disney Studios has just sent us these hi-res stills and publicity images from The Sorcerer’s Apprentice featuring Nicolas Cage, Jay Baruchel, Alfred Molina, Monica Belluci and Teresa Palmer which we’ve added to our gallery for the film below (newest images first).
Although they’ll also probably be released in time, if you’re hungry for additional stills from the film, be sure to check out the junior novelization of the film which contains several full color photos from the motion picture.
