How Nicolas Cage’s Geeky Obessions Brought ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ to Life

For a Hollywood star with a reputation for being a "bad boy," Nicolas Cage has some fairly geeky passions. His obsession with comic books is well known. He took his stage name from Marvel Comics' character Luke Cage, and he named his son Kal-el after Superman's birth name. He's been known to collect dinosaur fossils, and he bought a home in New Orleans he said was known as the "most haunted house in America."

Apparently, Cage also has a nerdy obsession with King Arthur legends and classic Disney animation. So he got the notion that he could put them both together into one movie, and that's how Disney's "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" came to be. He developed the idea that the short segment from the animated classic "Fantasia" could be made into a big-budget movie, and he rallied together the team behind his "National Treasure" films to make it happen.
