The trailer for The Sorcerer's Apprentice certainly looks exciting, but I wonder if it's more of a sophisticated kids' film or an all-ages crossover? The special effects are sharp and IMAX-worthy, but considering this is based on the famous Mickey Mouse sequence in Disney's 1940 musical Fantasia, I guess I just expected this to be aimed more at children. In any case, I'm intrigued — Nicolas Cage plays the mysterious sorcerer and Jay Baruchel (whom I've loved since his Undeclared days) plays the title character.
The live-action film is definitely a loose interpretation — I don't see Baruchel bewitching any brooms. The preview also immediately reminded me of Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant, only with more explosions.
