Reader Fox Blog I feel like, as a kid I had this really strong love for The Sorcerer s Apprentice, but looking back now I can t really understand exactly why this was the case I don t have any strong memories of loving the movie Fantasia In fact, I can only recall one time in my life that I actually read it vs the countless times I watched other films I didn t actually own this book as a kid, so I d never read the story And yet, for some reason, my adult mind has some immense emotion Reader Fox Blog I feel like, as a kid I had this really strong love for The Sorcerer s Apprentice, but looking back now I can t really understand exactly why this was the case I don t have any strong memories of loving the movie Fantasia In fact, I can only recall one time in my life that I actually read it vs the countless times I watched other films I didn t actually own this book as a kid, so I d never read the story And yet, for some reason, my adult mind has some immense emotional connection to it Fascinating, right So, what was it that drew me to this To tell you the truth, I have absolutely no idea And perhaps time has just hidden whatever it was from me But ultimately when I did find this book in a garage sale a few months ago and took the time to read it, the story didn t really blow me away Like, sure, it s adorable to watch innocent apprentice Mickey lust after the book of magic to help him clean and cast some spells without fully understanding what he was doing It was amusing to see how it all backfired on him.And I guess a part of me does still really like it because even as I type this I m thinking how genuinely happy I was to see this scene in the live action movie that came out some years ago I know a lot of people talk about how bad that movie was, but I ll be honest with you, I love it so much Though I imagine Jay Baruchel had a lotto do with that than anything else he s just so adorably awkward, I love him.Regardless, I m still left with an odd emotional attachment to this story even though I m not massively impressed with it And I wonder if that s the sort of magic that Disney is just master of The magic of building those emotions within us that stay forever, unceasingly resulting in or adoration for stories like this our whole lives Instagram Twitter Reader Fox Blog Bloglovin Facebook ( Book ) ☪ The Sorcerer's Apprentice ♐ Apprenticed to a sorcerer, Mickey Mouse tries to save himself work by making some magic Just prior to reading this with my grandson, we watched the clip from Fantasia of the same name Then we read the book and watched the clip from the live action movie So we got a triple dose of the story My grandson liked it and used his magic wand to cast spells on our mop to make it clean and pour water into a big box Good times.
