Sorcerer in present-day Manhattan (Cage) has to search for and train a new apprentice (Barcuchel), while at the same time trying to prevent his nemesis (Molina) from raising the souls of dead sorcerers and destroying the world.

An enjoyable film with a good cast, though certainly nothing special, being as well-crafted as anything off the Disney production line, though a bit lacking in soul. Nice to see Cage enjoying himself (and well-cast) for once, and Molina is always a pleasing villain. And of course, the namesake sequence from Fantasia (1940) is nicely evoked in one scene.
