There are only a small number of films that are more anticipated than Tomorrowland, a movie with Brad Bird at the helm based on Disney’s Tomorrowland from their theme park. Obviously it doesn’t have the name of another Disney project known as Star Wars or Marvel, but after Bird’s extreme success with animation and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, many people have this movie pretty high up on their lists.
These new images came from Entertainment Weekly, showing George Clooney and Britt Robertson in their respective roles, along with a piece of concept art that gives us an indication the type of world Bird is trying to create.
Along with the images, Bird also gave a description and details on the project:
“A Florida girl who dreams of the future while watching the launchpads of Cape Canaveral being disassembled goes exploring one day and, after landing in a bit of trouble, finds herself in possession of a mysterious pin. Touching it reveals a vision of a place that may not be a different world but simply a better one. (You can see the concept art above.) Then it’s gone—out, out, brief candle!—and the quest to discover the real Tomorrowland begins.”
“What Hogwarts is to magic, Tomorrowland is to science: They are both easy to find if you are a wizard and very difficult to find if you’re a Muggle,” says Lindelof. “Walt Disney is not a character in our movie, but he is referenced as having some involvement in this mysterious place called Tomorrowland, as a huge futurist and aficionado of space travel, rocketry, cities of the future, and space travel.”
Tomorrowland has a May 22nd, 2015 release date. Directed by Brad Bird starring George Clooney, Britt Robertson, Judy Greer, Hugh Laurie, Kathryn Hahn, and Tim McGraw.
