Walt Disney and his theme parks exist in the world of Brad Bird‘s Tomorrowland. That’s a secret the cast and crew kept for a long time but in the past few videos and trailers, it’s become abundantly clear.

A few new featurettes give some tantalizing teases at these connections alongside glimpses of a few other things from the film.

We all remember Frank Miller‘s adaptation of Will Eisner‘s The Spirit, or maybe we’re trying to forget it. That wasn’t the first time Hollywood attempted to bring the comic book classic to the big screen. One of the previous attempts was to turn the story into an animated movie, with a young director named Brad Bird creating a fake pitch trailer to try to sell the feature. This was of course before Bird went on to direct The Iron Giant, The Incredibles or Ratatouille. He was a young filmmaker just out of Cal Arts.
Find out the Brad Bird The Spirit adaptation story, see some concept art and even read a letter Bird supposedly wrote to pitch the project to Steven Spielberg.

In the past few years, few movies have been as secretive as Tomorrowland. Directed by Brad Bird and co-written by Damon Lindelof, almost everything about the sci-fi Disney adventure has been mysterious. Is Disneyland part of it? What’s the 1952 box? Who is The Optimist? How does The World’s Fair fit in? Do Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison play a role? Speculation ran rampant.
The first teaser trailer gave fans a bit of an idea of the story and now, a second and likely final Tomorrowland trailer gives us even more. It’s the story of a young girl (Britt Robertson) who meets a scientist (George Clooney) to travel to a secret world called Tomorrowland. The films opens May 22, and you can see the latest Tomorrowland trailer below. Read More »
This morning, Disney released a new poster for Tomorrowland. Russ grabbed it before I was finished with breakfast, but I noticed something hidden within the image that is noteworthy – hence this post.
Ever since it was announced that director Brad Bird and screenwriter/producer Damon Lindelof’s secret 1952 project was to be titled Tomorrowland, Disney fanatics have speculated about what role the Disneyland park and Walt Disney himself might play in the film. We know that Walt Disney’s creations at the 1964 World’s Fair play into the plot. (specifically the ‘It’s a Small World After All’ attraction, which was later relocated to Disneyland, where it remains today.) Lindelof has said that the movie will show the origins of Tomorrowland but would not show Disneyland itself — but that doesn’t mean we won’t see notable aspects of Disneyland in the movie itself.
And today’s Tomorrowland poster gives us a first look at that. Will we see Disneyland’s Space Mountain in Tomorrowland?

Brad Bird‘s new film Tomorrowland, starring Britt Robertson and George Clooney, is still mysterious, even after the first trailer and TV spot debuts. We know the film follows characters played by Robertson and Clooney as they “embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as Tomorrowland.” A new Tomorrowland trailer arrives on Monday, March 9, and that will probably tell us a lot more about the film. Along with that, there will be a live Q&A with Bird and producer Damon Lindelof. For now, we’ve got a new Tomorrowland poster, which you can see below.
