“Tomorrowland” is a Disney movie that hasn’t yet been realesed but, you might be thinking, “Hey, I’ve heard that before”. And, yes, you probably have. If you’ve ever been to Disney World, you have been to Tomorrowland, an area in the Magic Kingdom park dedicated to the future. Or, in other words, the land of tomorrow.
The idea came after the success of “Pirates of the Caribbean”, a movie franchise staring Johnny Depp, that was also based-off a theme park ride. Damon Lindelof, who you might recognise as the writer of HBO’s “The Leftovers”, “Star Trek Into Darkness”, “Lost” and “Crossing Jordan”, decided to take this and turn it into something new: another ride-based movie, starring an A-list Hollywood star. That’s how “Tomorrowland” was born.
The movie, which is set to be released May 22nd 2015 in the US, follows a former boy-genius inventor and a super curious teenager who end up on a mission to learn all there is to know about a place that’s somewhere in time and space and that exists in their collective memory.
The man, Frank Walsh, is played by no one other than George Clooney, whom I don’t feel I need to introduce. The teenager, Casey Newton, is played by Britt Robertson, whom you might not have recognized. Britt is best known for “Under The Dome”, “The Secret Circle”, “The First Time”, “Scream 4″, “Life Unexpected”, “Triple Dog” and “Avalon High”.
In the movie, you’ll also find Judy Greer (13 Going on 30, Love & Other Drugs, Two and a Half Man), Kathryn Hahn (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, We’re The Millers), Hugh Laurie (House M.D.) and Tim McGraw (The Blind Side).
Finally, the movie was directed by Brad Bird, who has directed movies from “The Incredibles” to “Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol).
And, right now, you can watch the very first trailer. And become filled with curiosity, like I was.
