Throughout this week, Disney has been slowly unveiling a series of character posters for The Sorcerer's Apprentice, which we featured a new trailer for yesterday. Disney has exclusively given us the new poster for "The Apprentice," played by Jay Baruchel, to unveil. "Dave is his own worst enemy, the architect of his own misery," says Baruchel. "He spends his life trying to live down that moment in the Arcana Cabana when he first encountered Balthazar and Horvath." Of course, "it was no coincidence that he drifted towards physics because although illusion and magic are different, magic and science are the same." So check it out!
Here are the other three character posters that they've debuted so far - Nic Cage's poster comes tomorrow!
Master sorcerer Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage) recruits a seemingly everyday guy (Jay Baruchel) in his mission to defend New York City from his evil arch-nemesis - sorcerer Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina).
The Sorcerer's Apprentice is directed by veteran filmmaker Jon Turteltaub, who also directed 3 Ninjas, Cool Runnings, The Kid and both National Treasure movies previously. The screenplay was co-written by Carlo Bernard (The Uninvited) and Matt Lopez (Bedtime Stories). This is based on the story that first appeared in Disney's Fantasia in 1940. The Sorcerer's Apprentice will hit theaters nationwide on July 14th next month.
