It's only natural that Nicolas Cage follows up his bizarre, acclaimed work in Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans by reuniting with his National Treasure director Jon Turteltaub to star in an adaptation of a ten minute Fantasia segment about an anthropomorphized mouse who abuses magic to create broom havoc. Because after all, everyone knows you follow up Herzog with Turteltaub.

Yeah, The Sorcerer's Apprentice was a poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe written about 150 years before Fantasia borrowed it, but this new and improved CGI-athon is a Disney production and if you think a bunch of Disney execs sat around a big table and declared "Let's spend $100 million on a Johann Wolfgang von Goeth poem adapatation!" you are a crazy person. You can take a leap over to Apple trailers and take a peek at the new trailer yourself (or watch it after the jump), although only the title and a brief shot of Jay Baruchel (playing the part of Mickey Mouse) combating living brooms suggests any sort of relationship to the Fantasia segment.
