Disney has always had a phenomenal track record with animated features but their live action movies are always hit and miss. For every Pirates Of The Caribbean there is a Herbie:Fully Loaded or a Flubber to undo their masterpieces. Their newest feature borrows from the famous Fantasia short “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” in name only. Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel play the duo of sorcerer and apprentice. While their chemistry is there it does feel like Cage is just in it for the quick pay day to pay for his pyramid tomb. I think Disney will put every effort into making this a franchise since Pirates is getting ready to wrap up.
Do you think hobo Nic Cage and the nerd from every teen angst movie in the last six months have the tools to make this film successful?
