Walt Disney Studios Conjures up Two New Television Ads for ‘Sorcerer’s Apprentice’

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.

New Clip from ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice:’ The Coolest Scene Ever

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).

Sorcerer's Apprentice: Balthazar Blake (The Sorcerer)After a week, we finally have the last — but certainly not least — entry in the character posters for The Sorcerer’s Apprentice from Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer.

New Trailer for Disney’s ‘Sorcerer’s Apprentice:’ More F/X Than Ever!

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.
