‘Tomorrowland’ Insight From The Film’s Cast and Creative Team
  |  

Tomorrowland opens this week and for the intrigued who aren’t Disney Geeks, many questions have been asked about the mysteries of the film named after the land in the theme parks. And no, it doesn’t tell the tale of how much better it is to get a fast pass for Space Mountain than stand in line. The picture is the optimistic story of a young girl (Britt Robertson), who discovers a pin that transports her to a world of infinite possibilities, and enlists the jaded inventor (George Clooney) to find a way there and unlock their destinies. Director Brad Bird, star George Clooney and writers Damon Lindelof and Jeff Jensen, shared the origin of the ideas behind the film, and the mark it strives to leave in Disney’s legacy.

Movie Review: Tomorrowland
  |  

Tomorrowland
Directed by Brad Bird
Written by: Damon Lindelof, Brad Bird, and Jeff Jensen
Starring George Clooney, Britt Robertson, Hugh Laurie, Raffey Cassidy
Disney Pictures
Rated PG | Run Time 130 Minutes
Release Date: May 22, 2015

The mystery finally unfolds with the release of Disney’s Tomorrowland. Taking its name from the area in both California’s and Florida’s Disney theme parks, the speculation ends here in regards to whether the film is clever advertising, or a picture that speaks to the legacy of Walt Disney’s dreams for a sustainable world created by the world’s greatest minds. Jensen and Lindelof based the film on an idea of Disney’s original concept plans for an Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, but with an added narrative based around the story of girl genius Casey (Britt Robertson), who finds a pin that shows her a futuristic place where it’s fun to do the impossible. After some internet research and nudging by an animatronic A.I. child named Athena (Raffey Cassidy), Casey arrives at the front door of former boy genius and inhabitant of Tomorrowland Frank Walker (George Clooney). Unable to convince him to show her the way to the place where rockets still fly and progress blooms, Walker gives in when secret animatronic agents are sent to eradicate them and attack his home. Also, this happens just as Casey discovers one of his inventions that forecasts the end of their world, and has a countdown ticking down the days. Before she finishes berating him for sitting there and doing nothing, they flee the happiest blaster-touting robots you’ve ever seen. And along with Athena, who reveals that something is broken in Tomorrowland, Casey and Frank discover that their creative minds make them dangerous to whatever took over the wonderful place, as they may be the only ones able to save it and the world.

  |  @   |  

Much of Disney’s Tomorrowland has been shrouded in secrecy. The film’s title would suggest that Brad Bird‘s latest, written by Damon Lindelof, had strong ties to the sci-fi portion of the Disneyland theme park, but neither of them or the two trailers or the marketing itself would reveal any answers or confirm that notion.

All we knew was that a trading pin would instantly transport the holder to a highly futuristic city at lies somewhere between time and space.

Now a new trailer is offering more clues that will help unravel the mystery behind Tomorrowland. Hit the jump to check out the latest trailer for the film.
