Features 

Baraka (1992)
When the brief story of Balthazar's search for the Prime Merlinian is described, you see a shot of Balthazar walking in an African setting. (Approx 3:40min into the film). That shot is taken from the movie "Baraka" (1992) and Balthazar is edited into that shot. In short: The scene at 3:40min in the Sorcerers Apprentice is the copied/edited shot from "Baraka" at 30:27min.
