The Sorcerer's Apprentice is a 2002 South African fantasy film. Although set in England, the film was shot on location in South Africa.

Synopsis[edit]

Every hundred years, the evil Morgana (Kelly Le Brock) returns to claim Fingall's talisman, with which she intends to destroy the world, from the wizard Merlin. For the last fourteen hundred years she has failed... now she intends to conquer all.

Young Ben Clark (Byron Taylor) moves with his parents to a new town, where he befriends an elderly Welshman and magician, Milner (Robert Davi). Ben has a natural talent for magic and wants to learn all that he can from this old man. Ben carries the same scar as the original staff-bearer 1,400 years before. Both Morgana and Milner, who is revealed to be Merlin, see this as a sign that this time, the battle between good and evil will be stronger and harder than ever.

Ben must make his own choice between good and evil as he is drawn into a battle and must draw on his own spirit and magic to decide which path to follow and hence, the fate of the world as we know it.
