Tomorrowland Theme Park

Find out more about Brad Bird's mystery film: Tomorrowland.

Disney started principal photography on Tomorrowland two weeks ago in Vancouver and they've released a teaser for the upcoming live-action film. Based on the Disney theme land, Tomorrowland is one of the many theme lands at the five Disney theme parks worldwide. Each version of the land is different and features different attractions that depict life of the future.

Walt Disney once described his vision saying, "Tomorrow can be a wonderful age. Our scientists today are opening the doors of the Space Age to achievements that will benefit our children and generations to come. The Tomorrowland attractions have been designed to give you an opportunity to participate in adventures that are a living blueprint of our future."

Directed by Brad Bird, Tomorrowland stars George Clooney and Hugh Laurie and the short plot is described as "Bound by a shared destiny, a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor 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.'"

It's not much to go on, but it sounds like a thrilling adventure.

Here's the full press release:

Is that animated or live action?

Well, no one thought they could turn a ride into a movie, and we ended up with four Pirates films. (Two good, two not so good.) Obviously neither Clooney nor Laurie are playing the teen...
If they make a It's a Small World movie then it just might be a sign of the apocalypse...

I think Disney can make anything work. It's crazy how a brand name can make money.

Yolanda Renee said...

The premise sounds exciting - and can go anywhere. Will wait and see. Used to be the movies were the reason for a new theme park creation, now it's the opposite - that's kind of cool!

Its live action Pat. I updated the post to avoid confusion. Good question. Is that better or worse to you?

Maurice Mitchell said...

It surprised me too Alex . Is there a Disney ride you'd make into a movie?

DAVID WALSTON said...

Tell that to The Lone Ranger. ;)

DAVID WALSTON said...

I'm not sure about this one. I'll wait to reserve judgment till more info is out.

If it stars George Clooney and Hugh Laurie it sounds weird it's supposed to focus on teens.
