First Look: Disney & Brad Bird's 'Tomorrowland' with George Clooney
Tomorrow, Disney is bringing a tease of Brad Bird's sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland to New York Comic-Con, and we'll have coverage of the panel shortly thereafter. In the meantime, it seems like a teaser trailer for the summer 2015 release might not be too far away as we finally have the first photos from the film starring George Clooney and "Under the Dome" star Britt Robertson. The film follows a Florida girl who dreams of the future while watching the launchpads of Cape Canaveral being disassembled. After getting into a bit of trouble while exploring, she finds herself in possession of a mysterious pin that reveals a vision of a place that gives her a glimpse into a better world. But finding it doesn't prove to be easy. Look!
Here's the first images from Brad Bird's Tomorrowland from Entertainment Weekly:
Screenwriter Damon Lindelof talks a bit more about the plot of the film saying:
“There is a piece of technology in this pin, it’s the kind of old-school pin you would wear on your lapel, and when you make physical contact with it, you have the illusion of being physically transported to another world, and that’s how Casey gets her first glimpse of Tomorrowland. She is a Muggle who accidentally wanders across Platform 9 ¾ and sees something she probably shouldn’t have.”
Bird adds a little more, “At first when she experiences this thing, she’s not sure if it’s real or not. It’s kind of like being hit by a dream and not sure whether the dream was a dream or real." And that's when Robertson's character meets Clooney's character Frank Walker, a former boy-genius and inventor who is now just a hermit. But he shares a vision of Tomorrowland with this girl dreamer, and the two embark on a mission to figure out where and when this mysterious place exists. Stay tuned to find out more revelations about Tomorrowland after Disney has their panel for the film at New York Comic-Con tomorrow.
Tomorrowland is directed by Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) who co-wrote the script with Damon Lindelof (Star Trek Into Darkness, Prometheus). Bound by a shared destiny, a bright, optimistic teen (Britt Robertson) bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor (George Clooney) jaded by disillusionment embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory as “Tomorrowland.” Walt Disney Pictures releases the film next year May 22nd, 2015. Stay tuned.
