It began, as so many great things do, with something quite small. In 1797, the German poet Goethe published a poem about magical transformation called Der Zauberlehrling. Over time, bits and pieces were adapted and eventually found their way to Walt Disney, who took inspiration from the poem to create the masterpiece Fantasia. Seventy years later, inspiration struck again, when actor Nicolas Cage and super producer Jerry Bruckheimer teamed up with Walt Disney Studios to bring new life to the story. Using one of the most memorable moments from Fantasia, they have created The Sorcerer's Apprentice. Written by Michael Singer, the unit publicist on the film, The Answer Is Yes gives readers inside access to the filming, cast, crew, sets, and production. In pitch-perfect tone, he takes fans on a guided tour from the film's inception to its completion, with stops along the way at some of New York City's most recognizable landmarks. There is also in-depth narrative from the film's myriad of talent. From Bruckheimer's remarks on building up a classic to Jay Baruchel's take on being the perfect geek for the role to what went into all the amazing and groundbreaking effects, this is never-before-seen material that will be a must for fans old and new. The slightly oversize landscape-trim format and stunning cover effects will also make this a unique and stunning addition to anyone's coffee table.
