It's as much a reboot as Alice in Wonderland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory are reboots. It's in that weird gray area where the Fantasia short and the live action film are obviously adapting the same source material, so it's "another adaptation", but it's an adaptation that frankly would not exist without the previous adaptation's existence. No way modern Disney would adapt Sorcerer's Apprentice if it hadn't been adapted in Fantasia first.
