Fans of Fantasia will remember the animated version of The Sorcerer's Apprentice, but next July Nicolas Cage is bringing it to the screen in live action.

The actor plays a wizard who empowers his apprentice (played by Jake Cherry) as a boy and, later, Jay Baruchel as a young adult.

"He's more like a rock star," producer Jerry Bruckheimer tells PEOPLE about the film, due in theaters July 10. Like the animated version, this Sorcerer's Apprentice will also feature those dancing brooms. "We did it in a realistic way," Bruckheimer says. "The [brooms] are really dancing and doing their thing."
