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.
