Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey is one of the most powerful characters in Disney Infinity. Mickey's ground pound causes brooms with buckets of water to appear very quickly when the move is activated. His attack ability is essentially multiple magic projectiles that wander somewhat, and bounces between enemies. He also has a magical sweep attack, letting out a strong burst of magic that pushes enemies back. His Special Abilities include "Marksman" and "Super Jumper".
Hot dog! Well, hiya, Pal! Say, are ya' ready to have some fun?
Oh, gosh! This place sure is big.
Ha Ha! Now I'm gonna be unstoppable!
The Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey figure was hinted at the D23 Expo and was the free figure given to the audience. 5,000 people received this figure, which had silver, metallic paint on the stars and moon on his hat, making him the first Disney Infinity figure released. Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey was officially made available on January 26, 2014 in the US.
Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey has an exclusive Crystal Figure that released on December 31, 2014 for Disney Infinity 2.0. This makes him the last figure to receive this variant and the only figure to have this variant released for the sequel. His variant boasts slightly extra damage from attacks and greater spark pickups.
The regular Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey with blue stars was pre-released in some countries.
Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey and Buzz Lightyear are the only Disney Infinity figures to have 3 variants.
During one of the broadcast events, John Vignocchi stated that the official name for this figure is "Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer's Apprentice", as Disney is careful to distinguish between the different roles and characters Mickey Mouse has portrayed over the years.
The Infinite Crystal Series variant is the only figure released after the launch of Disney Infinity 2.0 to be backwards compatible with Disney Infinity 1.0.
Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey's pose matches Donald's, both having crossed arms and looking to each other. It is unknown if this was intentional or not.
If you use Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey's air assault very high up, his magic brooms will not come out when he lands and he'll look like he's just holding a ball of lightning.
In Disney Infinity 3.0, he has been massively nerfed in damage output (possibly to balance him out with the rest of the cast), while his block animation, dodges, super jump and rail slide animations, were changed to match the animations of the Mickey Mouse figure.
