The Sorcerer's Apprentice is an upcoming 2010 Disney family adventure film directed by Jon Turteltaub, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and starring Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel. It is a live action re-imagining of the Sorcerer's Apprentice segment in Disney's Fantasia,[1] which in turn is based on the late 1890s symphonic poem by Paul Dukas and 1797 Johann Wolfgang von Goethe ballad. The film is set to be released on July 16, 2010.[1]

  • Jay Baruchel plays Dave Stutler, an average college student who becomes Blake's apprentice.[2]
  • Alfred Molina plays an evil magician named Maxim Horvath.[2]
  • Teresa Palmer plays the love interest of Baruchel's character.[2]

Production

On February 12, 2007, this film was announced by Disney.[5] In the early morning hours of May 4, 2009, a Ferrari F430 being driven during filming of a chase sequence, lost control and careened into the window of a Sbarro restaurant in Times Square, injuring two pedestrians, one of whom was struck by a falling lamppost. Filming resumed the following night, when yet another accident occurred. The two accidents were blamed on rain making the roads slick.[6]
