THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE (2010)
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (2010)
It’s the coolest job ever.
“Everything you thought you knew about the world… is about to change.”
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (original poem)
Balthazar Blake is a thousand year old ancient Master Sorcerer in Modern Day Manhattan, waiting for the day he finds Merlin’s descendent, the Prime Merlinian, the only one who can save the world from the gathering forces of darkness.
When Balthazar finds Dave – an unlikely and at first unwilling candidate – with the help of the magical dragon ring, he knows that after searching all over the world for so many years, he has atlast found The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
A magical battle of good against evil in the form of the ‘Merlinians’ versus the ‘Morganians’ unfolds, as old enemies Balthazar and Horvarth, both try to take hold of the ‘grimhold’, a wooden nesting doll of many layers where Balthazar has previously trapped evil sorcerers and Morgana, who uses magic for power rather than for the good and intends to destroy the world.
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is an elaboration and homage to the original segment in Disney’s magical and classic movie, ‘Fantasia’, itself an adaptation of a Goethe poem.
The idea for ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ movie also came in part from Nicolas Cage’s love of the Arthurian legends.
The Rolls Royce Phantom that Master Sorcerer Balthazar Blake drives in the movie has a ‘Merlin’ engine.
