Walt Disney Pictures will be debuting a series of brand new character posters this week from their upcoming summer adventure The Sorcerer's Apprentice, which arrives in theaters nationwide on July 14. Disney has provided us with this exclusive new character poster that features Monica Bellucci's character, the sorceress Veronica. You can click on this exclusive character poster below to access our entire character poster gallery and you can also take a look at a description of Veronica from Monica Bellucci herself.
Veronica (Monica Bellucci) is a sorcerer who has had the great fortune of being loved by Balthazar Blake-and the misfortune of being loved by Maxim Horvath. "Balthazar and Veronica are willing to do everything for their love," says Bellucci, "and at the same time they're two fighters. Horvath, who, like them, was a disciple of Merlin, also falls in love with Veronica. She rejects him for Balthazar, and because of that he betrays them by aligning himself with Morgana. It's a beautiful and powerful story about love, jealousy and vengeance.
Sun Lok (Gregory Woo) is an ancient, but perpetually young, Chinese sorcerer and Morganian. When he's unlocked from his Grimhold by Horvath, Sun Lok wreaks havoc in Chinatown during a lively festival by materializing a fearsome fire-breathing dragon. "Sun Lok has been in a little container for thousands and thousands of years, and when he's let out, he's really, really angry," says Woo.
Maxim Horvath "The Villian" (Alfred Molina) was, along with Balthazar Blake and Veronica, a disciple of Merlin and a force of good more than a thousand years ago. But their mutual love for Veronica split the colleagues apart and Horvath has instead become an ally of the wicked Morgana, who murdered Merlin and is seeking to conquer the world with her minions. He and Balthazar have battled through the ages, finally bringing their conflict to modern-day New York City. The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Horvath's mission is world domination," says Molina. "Balthazar and Horvath have a rivalry that's gone on for millennia. Balthazar is maintaining the Merlinean standard of magic as a power that's used for the benefit of mankind. Horvath is the leader of the Morganians, who take the very different view that magic should be used to subjugate humans. That's the struggle between good as personified by Nicolas Cage's character, and evil as personified by mine. Horvath is a rather smart, debonair, Edwardian villain in the classic tradition of suave bad guys, well dressed and charming, but deadly.
