Tomorrowland-extended movie preview from Epcot-
Perdita (mom) here-
I recently returned from WDW where The Imagination Pavilion at Epcot is showing an extended preview (20 minutes) for the upcoming movie Tomorrowland. It is being release by Disney Motion Pictures on May 22nd. The movie stars George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, and Britt Robertson. It is directed by Brad Bird (previously made The Incredibles). The screenplay was co-written by Bird and Damon Lindelof (writer and co-creator of Lost).
In the extended preview, we see a young boy (assumed to be Clooney as a youth) who is taking his invention to the 1964 World’s Fair (where Walt Disney originally previewed his Carousel of Progress which is still at Magic Kingdom). His invention is rejected by Laurie but a young girl hands him a pin (the Tomorrowland pin). He began following the girl into ” It’s a Small World” ride but the something inside the ride scans the pin which causes a corridor to open. The boy falls in his boat into a room filled with water and docks beside a platform. He gets out of the boat and enters a Dr. Who-type portal that transports him to Tomorrowland. He arrives and finds himself in a very different looking world and upon a very high place which he immediately falls from. Several falls and near misses ensue before his invention (a jet-pack) begins to work. Suddenly we are looking at George Clooney and the teenage girl we see in the short preview that is being shown on tv and in theaters. Much is left as mystery and unanswered questions in this extended preview. It certainly looks like an interesting sci-fi film with plenty of action.
This film promises and is said to be an epic sci-fi film from Walt Disney studios.
Disney is saying the film is about, ” two people bound by a shared destiny; one being a bright optimistic teen with scientific curiosity and the other being a former boy genius inventor jaded by disillusionment. Together they 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. What they must do there changes the world-and them-forever.”
