Disney’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice on DVD and Blu-ray! Available Now!

Magic is everywhere in Disney’s “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” the fun family adventure from the creators of “National Treasure”. Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage) is a modern-day sorcerer with his hands full defending Manhattan against dark forces. When a seemingly average kid shows hidden potential, Balthazar takes his reluctant recruit on a crash course in the art and science of magic to become the ultimate sorcerer’s apprentice. Experience more extraordinary thrills, heart-stopping action and spectacular special effects than you can imagine as these unlikely partners show us that the real world is far more magical than we ever knew.

A fun, modern-day adventure follows Dave (JAY BARUCHEL), just an average college student, or so it  appears, until the sorcerer Balthazar Blake (NICOLAS CAGE) recruits him as his reluctant protégé and  gives him a crash course in the art and science of magic. As he prepares for a battle against the forces  of darkness in modern-day Manhattan, Dave finds it is going to take all of the courage he can muster to  survive his training, save the city and get the girl as he becomes THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE.

The moment I found out that Nicholas Cage was in this movie I was sold. I absolutely love Nicholas Cage. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a move that he’s done that I haven’t been happy with. Disney’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice was no different. Right from the start of the movie we were hooked. Funny thing is my son is a HUGE Harry Potter fan. I thought this movie would be perfect for him and when it came in he brushed it off thinking it wouldn’t compare. I asked him if he would just watch it with me and in the end he was hooked. He was even upset when I paused it to get a drink. Regardless if you are an adult or an older child this movie is a great one.

It starts off centries ago when Balthazar (Cage) fights Morgana the evil sorceress and in the last moment his true love Veronica takes in Morgana to save him. Balthazar traps them in ancient nesting dolls and spends centuries looking for the new Prime Merlinian to save his love. Problem is finding the Prime Merlinian! He’ll know he’s found the right person once the dragon rings acknowledges them! Well that special person is none other then Dave Stutler (Baruchel) a not so popular physics student at NYU. Dave isn’t interested in becoming the Prime Merlinian though, he’s interested in Becky.

What will happen? Who will win? Will Dave study and become the sorcerer he’s meant to be or will he miss his chance to become the Prime Merlinian and help free Balthazar one true love to find his?

    Oooo, this looks awesome. I miss out on what is coming out and what is out with having the satellite cable now, where we had regular cable before, and I forget to watch the news and don’t watch much with commercials anymore. Lol. I can’t wait to see this. I really like Jay Baruchel, Nicolas Cage too of course. Lol.
