~ Drake Stone

Drake Stone is a British celebrity illusionist and the tertiary antagonist in the 2010 Disney fantasy movie The Sorcerer's Apprentice.

He was portrayed by Toby Kebbell, who also portrayed Koba from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Doctor Doom in Fant4stic.

Drake Stone was an inexperienced wizard that practiced magic only to bring himself fame and fortune by posing as a stage magician.


Early life

Drake Stone was an inexperienced wizard that practiced magic, only to bring himself fame and fortune by posing as a stage magician to support his lifestyle. When he was 15 years old and without a family, his original mentor and master left him alone for unknown reasons, leaving him with only a copy of the Encantus which was how he was able to learn sorcery and become a magician with a lot of fame and fortune throughout his entire life in spite of his "abandonment issues".

Meeting Horvath and Finding the Right Location for The Rising

He was later recruited by Maxim Horvath to help retrieve the Grimhold. When Horvath visited him only to discover that he used his magic purely for becoming an entertainer, he chastised him for wasting such talent. Drake then agreed to lend him his hand for recovering the Grimhold, help freeing Morgana le Fay, and also in preparation for The Rising.

He and Horvath were later seen in Battery Park, where they choose the park as the site of the Rising. Here, Horvath notices that Drake was distracted by his many fans who asked for his autograph. After Drake left them, Horvath stated that they will all be dead soon (presumably unless willing to be servants of Morganians), much to Drake's dismay. Horvath then told him that they need to wait until Dave Stutler was alone before they dealt with him as he places an enchanted "NYU" magnet on the charging bull statue (The magnet appeared earlier on Dave's fridge when he got home and surprisingly saw his old Napoleon Bonaparte report on the door, attached with the magnet. Afterwards Horvath confronted Dave for the second time ever and he must have later taken the magnet away as evidence used for tracking down Dave.), hinting that Dave would then show up there alone.

Confronting Dave in the Bathroom

At the New York University, Drake enters the men's restroom after Dave and calls him the "Prime Merlinean", which Dave did not understand. He proceeds to make fun of Dave and when Dave doesn't recognise him (asking if he was in Depeche Mode) he uses the Levitation Spell on Dave, then he continues his routine, asking Dave to put on his Dragon Ring and hit him with his most powerful spell, which fails. Before Drake could finish, Horvath enters the bathroom and interrupts, calling Drake an idiot and asks him to watch the door. Later, Balthazar Blake uses the Levitation Spell on Drake to threaten Horvath then throws him against the row of lockers. During Balthazar's fight with Horvath, Drake attempts to fire an air-based blast to send Balthazar into the Hungarian Mirror Trap on the wall mirror, but thanks to Dave's warning Balthazar turns away and the spell sends Horvath into the mirror instead. Balthazar then flicks Drake into one of the stalls (no. 3). Horvath soon gets out and wakes Drake.

Stealing the Grimhold

Drake and Horvath visit the NYU Administration Reception and retrieves Dave's file, discovering the location of his lab. When Dave leaves Balthazar in frustration, Drake disguised himself as Dave and enters the lab, trapping Balthazar on a wall of circular wires. Horvath then enters the lab and uses the Fog Spell to find the Grimhold hidden by Balthazar's Invisibility Spell. Balthazar soon breaks free and fights back. When Horvath throws three daggers at Balthazar Dave enters just in time and levitates them, saving Balthazar's life. Drake and Horvath escape in their car with the Grimhold while Balthazar, Dave, and Tank the dog chase after them in their car. At the end of the chase, Drake and Horvath crush Balthazar and Dave's car then get away.

Betrayal and Death

Drake lined up all the satellites used for The Rising and returned to his penthouse building in Manhattan, where he was soon betrayed by Horvath. After telling him about the Parasite Spell, a curse originated in Haiti that transfers energy from one sorcerer to another, Horvath quickly used the spell on Drake and stole his ring, now imbued with Drake's magic and life energy.

Then Horvath attached the ring to his Staff and used it to release from the Grimhold his new ally, Abigail Williams.

Powers and Abilities

Drake Stone is a tricky, but not so tough sorcerer. Having posed as a stage magician to support his life, he is skilled mainly in illusions. He was capable of shapeshifting and levitation. The only form of combat magic he ever had cast or knew of were air-based blasts.



  • In the film, his character was based on real-life Criss Angel.
  • When met Drake Stone for the first time, Dave Stutler asks if Drake was from Depeche Mode due to the former's look was reminiscent of early looks of Depeche Mode member Martin Gore.
  • In the early draft of the film, Drake Stone was not present, nor even a mention of sorcerer who posed as stage magician similar to him. Instead, his role as third Morganian encountered by Dave and Balthazar whom revealed Dave to be the Prime Merlinean was filled by a presumably centuries year old Egyptian sorcerer named Menmet-Ra. Menmet-Ra was released by Horvath and is sent to deal Merlineans as he opened the next layer that contained Chernabog. Menmet-Ra was eventually killed by Balthazar in the difficult fight, but not before revealing Dave to be Prime Merlinean that made him questioned his training's purpose. Interestingly, the penthouse where Drake stayed in the film was the same one Horvath lives in the early draft of the film.
