It’s about time! Who hasn’t been awaiting the live action re-imagining of Disney’s classic Fantasia sequence: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice? With a bewigged and mumbling Nicholas Cage flashing the outfit he stole from Van Helsing? AND the funny kid from Knocked Up/Tropic Thunder? AND explosions and dragons galoooore?
Everyone, that’s who.
Maybe I’m just feeling cynical today, but this trailer makes The Sorcerer’s Apprentice look like a big ol’ batch of empty, bombastic dumb. All in spite of Jerry Bruckhiemer.
On a positive note, at least they kept the mops. Watch the trailer below, then breathlessly yawn your anticipation for July 16, 2010.
