Speaking about The Sorcerer's Apprentice movie, what character you think Horvath become basis/inspiration of? When I check on Horvath's page in Disney Wiki, a user named Agustinaldo claimed that he was loosely based on Lord Voldemort as much as he claimed the whole film being inspired by Harry Potter series through checking at editing history of Horvath's page. In actuality, The Sorcerer's Apprentice is clearly based on the eponymous late-1890s symphonic poem by Paul Dukas and the 1797 Johann Wolfgang von Goethe ballad as well as its Fantasia adaptation starred by Mickey Mouse. Moreover, I didn't find any references to Harry Potter series in the rest of the film whatsoever.
