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.
The character poster parade for The Sorcerer’s Apprentice from Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer marches on this week, today presenting magical love interest Veronica (Monica Belluci) who eventually proves to be twice the woman she appears to be.
Veronica is a sorceress who has had the great fortune of being loved by Balthazar Blake—and the misfortune of being loved by Maxim Horvath. “Balthazar and Veronica are willing to do everything for their love,” says Bellucci, “and at the same time they’re two fighters. Horvath, who, like them, was a disciple of Merlin, also falls in love with Veronica. She rejects him for Balthazar, and because of that he betrays them by aligning himself with Morgana. It’s a beautiful and powerful story about love, jealousy and vengeance.”
Maxim Horvath (Alfred 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.
Each day this week, @DisneyMoviesUK will be releasing a new poster featuring a character from the upcoming Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer release The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
As an interesting selection, the first poster features Sun Lok (Gregory Woo) who’s not a particularly strong character in the film but enjoys showing off his strengths during what precious screen time he does have as he wreaks havoc on New York City’s Chinatown when terrorizing the film’s heroes Balthazar (Nicolas Cage) and Dave (Jay Baruchel).
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice will be released in theaters in North America on July 14.
