Hot off the news Disney has moved Star Wars Episode VII from an expected Summer 2015 release date to the winter, the company has slotted another family sci-fi fantasy adventure in the expected Star Wars slot. Tomorrowland, directed by Brad Bird, co-written by Damon Lindelof and starring George Clooney, has been moved from December 2014 to May 22, 2015.
By moving Tomorrowland, Disney both shows the Star Wars move wasn’t a competition thing as well as an epic vote of confidence in Bird’s film. It now opens during a Summer which will see films such as Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jurassic World, Terminator 5 and many, many more. Opening an original story against all these well-regarded and popular franchises means Disney thinks it stand right up against them.
Here’s the official description of the plot:
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.”
