Short Film Saturday: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

If you’re like me and you absolutely couldn’t stand the new version of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice that was foisted upon us than have a gander below at the original intent. Minus the introduction which I believe is from the rehash Fantasia 2000, it is without dialogue. It is wordless and symphonic leaving you to marvel at good old cel animation and simple well-executed story.


It’s surprising that Disney has done nothing to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the film perhaps that is waiting five years for the 75th- so be on the lookout in 2015. I was never a huge fan of the film as a whole but this was always my favorite segment and perhaps that realization brings a new axiom into the mix: “you don’t know what you got ’til it’s remade.”
