Sorcerer Mickey Mouse is the magical form of Mickey Mouse, and his most famous role. This form made its debut as the main character in The Sorcerer's Apprentice segment of the animated 1940 film Fantasia. Sorcerer Mickey is marketed as the main protagonist of the movie, despite only appearing in one segment.


During the making of Fantasia, audiences were annoyed because Mickey had nothing but good luck unlike his friends Donald Duck and Goofy. When audiences started to ignore Mickey, Walt Disney decided to cast him as the main character in the film Fantasia. The plan worked and Mickey once again became popular. Mickey was also given a new design. His circle body was changed into a pear shape and his nose became smaller and fans say Disney made him cuter. Mickey was transformed into a magical character that most people see today.

Powers and Abilities

Sorcerer Mickey is one of the most powerful characters in the Disney universe. Sorcerer Mickey can bring objects to life, control water and fire, fly, levitate, and more. Sorcerer Mickey most famous ability is the power to control water. Sorcerer Mickey was also shown to control the stars and comets.



Sorcerer Mickey using the powers of the Hat.

Mickey was working for a sorcerer master named Yen Sid and he was learning how to perform magic while Mickey was doing his chores at the time. Mickey was tired just like his master. Yen Sid went to rest and Mickey stole the Sorcerer Hat and became Sorcerer Mickey. Mickey tried to bring a broom to life to do the chores instead. Mickey fell fast asleep while the broom ended up flooding the entire tower. Mickey tried to stop it but it was too much, then Yen Sid came and stopped the madness and Mickey was sent to finish his work.

The Mickey Mouse Club

On The Mickey Mouse Club, Mickey would appear as Sorcerer Mickey every Wednesday for "Anything Can Happen Day".

Mickey's 60th Birthday

During his 60th birthday celebration, Mickey uses the Magic Hat to fix the mess caused by the dynamite stick that Roger Rabbit accidentally placed on the cake. Because the audience loves his magic act, Mickey becomes Sorcerer Mickey to continue with the magic act, which unfortunately gets him in trouble with the Wizard.

Fantasia 2000

Sorcerer Mickey reappears in the Sorcerer's Apprentice segment added to the sequel Fantasia 2000. Sorcerer Mickey also appears in live-action where he tells Donald it is time for his segment.

House of Mouse

Sorcerer Mickey made a few appearances on House of Mouse. In the episode "Mickey and Minnie's Big Vacation", in which he had to save the House of Mouse from a flood caused by Donald Duck and Daisy Duck. In "Goofy for a Day", Mickey arrives in his sorcerer outfit at the opening of the show, telling the audience it's been a busy day.

In Mickey's House of Villains, when the villains take over the House of Mouse, Mickey becomes Sorcerer Mickey and battles Jafar in order to take control back. He almost loses the battle when Jafar manages to knock his hat off, but fortunately Aladdin shows up to toss him Jafar's Lamp and trap him in it.

Once Upon a Time

Main article: The Apprentice (character)

In Once Upon a Time, The Apprentice plays the role of Sorcerer Mickey.

Video games

Kingdom Hearts series

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep

Sorcerer Mickey KH3D

In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Mickey becomes a D-Link for Ventus and Aqua. While using him as a D-Link, they can either create an aerial attack or release magical light bullets to inflict damage on the enemy.

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance

Mickey appears in his sorcerer form in the Fantasia-inspired world, Symphony of Sorcery. Like the Country of the Musketeers, this world is set sometime during Mickey's training in the past. Sora and Riku encounter Sorcerer Mickey during their journey through the Sleeping Realm. Much of his role in the original segment is reproduced, as are elements of him conducting a magical symphony.

The introduction of the game also has animation of him on the bottom screen conducting the music to go with the action above.

Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two

Sorcerer Mickey appears as a costume Mickey can change into.


Sorcerer Mickey was announced as a figure at the 2013 D23 Expo for the first Disney INFINITY and was given away early to attendees, with a regular release set for January 2014. The "classic" version of Mickey is set to appear in the series' third installment.

Disney Parks

In Disney's Hollywood Studios, Sorcerer Mickey occasionally comes out and takes pictures with guest. He is also the official mascot of the park. Sorcerer Mickey has his own spell card known as "Apprentice Mickey's Broomsticks" in the attraction Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom.

At Disneyland, Sorcerer Mickey is also one of the variants of Mickey one can meet when visiting Mickey's Movie Barn in Mickey's Toontown.

World of Color

Sorcerer Mickey & the Spring Sprite appears during the show's grand finale in the live nighttime water spectacular at Disney California Adventure. Sorcerer Mickey is seen making his own water effects and is the last character seen before the show ends.


In Fantasmic!, Mickey takes on the guise of Sorcerer Mickey in the opening and finale of the show in the American versions of the show, and despite promotional material, never fights villains as the Sorcerer (wearing his regular shorts when facing Jafar in the Orlando version, fighting Dragon Maleficent as the Brave Little Tailor).

In the Tokyo DisneySea version, Mickey stays as the Sorcerer throughout the whole show, battling The Witch's allies after being entrapped in the Magic Mirror. The Sorcerer's Apprentice theme also appears more often in the show's soundtrack. In the finale of this version of the show, Sorcerer Mickey's robes become white and glowing as he controls the fireworks and fountains of the finale.

Mickey's Philharmagic

Sorcerer Mickey's magical hat is the main item in the computer animated short held at Disney's Magic Kingdom and Tokyo Disneyland theme parks. The hat goes into many famous Disney films during some of their most famous Disney musical scenes. During the hat's adventure it is being followed by Donald Duck who is trying to get the hat back before Mickey notices it missing.

Grad Explosion

Sorcerer Mickey does make another appearance in Grad Explosion which is an annual fireworks spectacular reserved for high school graduates. This only takes place in Disneyland during Grad Nite which is held annually in May. Guests can see him by Sleeping Beauty's Castle standing on a special platform where the moat meets as they watch him control the silver spiral fireworks with his magic fingers.


  • The story artists who developed The Sorcerer's Apprentice originally suggested Dopey from Snow White for the title role, but Disney insisted upon using Mickey.
  • Sorcerer Mickey has been the mascot of Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment from when it started until 2000. The original 1978 VHS covers of movies had him on the front of all of them (taking up most of the box), the 1986 Walt Disney Home Video logo had him in the beginning until 2001 (where it was alternating with the 1991 logo), as well as the 1988 Walt Disney Classics logo until 1994 when the video line ended. He was used on most print advertisements for Disney home entertainment until 2000. Also, on most Disney tapes released from 1996 to 1999, a clip from the first time he puts his sorcerer hat on in Fantasia is shown on a television to advertise upcoming and available Disney videos at the time.
  • Sorcerer Mickey was awarded #4 on Time Magazine's Most Beloved Sorcerers list.
