"Try as we all might; it's only a dream when we think we can control nature's all powerful forces. Mickey, the overly ambitious sorcerer's apprentice, had to learn the hard way that real magic must be truly understood... and appreciated, before it can ever be controlled."
— Peter Ellenshaw
"Fantasia" (1940) was a breakthrough feature length film integrating eight classical musical compositions with dramatic animated visuals. One of the most memorable sequences from that film is the 'Sorcerer's Apprentice.' Again, Peter Ellenshaw has created a very powerful and spectacular piece showing the many forces of nature -- the ocean's waves, the planets and stars -- all about to overwhelm and humble our dear Mickey Mouse.
