The Sorcerer's Apprentice Fantasia

Jon Turteltaub‘s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is inspired by the sequence in the Walt Disney Animated film Fantasia. While the film takes the 8 minute scene of classic animation and expands on the idea greatly, the movie does feature a sequence inspired by the original animated Mickey Mouse segment. Disney has released a new featurette that takes a look at this sequence, giving us a peek at what it looks like in live-action with Jay Baruchel. We also get our first listen to the music which is also inspired by the original Fantasia animation. Watch the clip, embedded after the jump.

Walt Disney Studios, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Jon Turteltaub, the creators of the “National Treasure” franchise, present THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE — an innovative and epic comedy adventure about a sorcerer and his hapless apprentice who are swept into the center of an ancient conflict between good and evil.

Balthazar Blake (NICOLAS CAGE) is a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (ALFRED MOLINA). Balthazar can’t do it alone, so he recruits Dave Stutler (JAY BARUCHEL), a seemingly average guy who demonstrates hidden potential, as his reluctant protégé. The sorcerer gives his unwilling accomplice a crash course in the art and science of magic, and together, these unlikely partners work to stop the forces of darkness. It’ll take all the courage Dave can muster to survive his training, save the city and get the girl as he becomes THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE. The screenplay is by Matt Lopez and Doug Miro & Carlo Bernard from a screen story by Matt Lopez and Larry Konner & Mark Rosenthal.
