There's still a lot of mystery surrounding this summer's sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland from director Brad Bird, but it's a Disney film, and it has direct ties to the theme park attraction of the same name that has been around for decades since Walt Disney was still alive. Now two new featurettes dive into the fascination that Disney himself had with the innovations of the future, and the ideas he had in order to make civilization more efficient, not to mention the narrative in the film as well. And the footage also shows that there's a lot of inspiration from the past with regards to what we'll see on the big screen next month.
Here's the two featurettes for Brad Bird's Tomorrowland straight from Disney:
Tomorrowland is directed by Brad Bird (of 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 everywhere on May 22nd this summer.
