In this grandiose, live-action remake of a short film that appeared in the 1940 and 2000 versions of Fantasia, Dave Stutler (Jay Baruchel) is taken under the wing of sorcerer Balthazar Blake (Nicholas Cage) so he can learn the tricks of the trade and help defeat the power-hungry Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina) and the wicked Morgana (Alice Krige).
