If it wasn't for "The Sorcerer's Apprentice", the feature "Fantasia" would never have been made. The fairy tale was made into a poem by Goethe and into a concert piece by Paul Dukas. The story of a young Apprentice (played by Mickey Mouse), who believes he too can control the spells that his Master, Yen Sid, can produce from a magic sorcerer's book. Mickey begins with spells to control the broom he used to clean up, to help with his chore of bringing in water. Tried from all the magic spells he had cast, Mickey begins to dream about controlling all the forces of nature and the universe. Awaken by noticing all the water that had been brought into the room, the young Apprentice loses control of his once simple spells and is rescued by his Master. This segment has been fully restored for it's re-release in theaters.
