DAMON LINDELOF, BRAD BIRD

Since last year’s D23 Expo, director Brad Bird has been very quiet about his sci-fi Disney fantasy, Tomorrowland. The film stars George Clooney, was co-written by Damon Lindelof, and has been as secretive about its production as that other Disney sci-fi movie. Those flood gates are ready to open though as Tomorrowland will have presentations in the coming months at New York Comic-Con and Destination D.

But that’s not all. Leading up to Tomorrowland‘s May 2015 release date, a prequel book called Before Tomorrowland is in the works and one website believes they’ve found an early look at it. What do the images show? An epic meeting of the minds that could explain the alternate dimensions in Tomorrowland, as well as a tie into Walt Disney. Check out your possible first look at the Tomorrowland movie history below. Read More »

The public’s understanding of Brad Bird‘s Tomorrowland has been like its very own theme park ride. First we though it was literally about the Tomorrowland section of Disneyland. Then we heard it had something to do with a 1952 mystery box. Next a more authentic plot description was revealed, and now all of those possibilities are beginning to blend.

Bird is currently in Vancouver, BC shooting the December 2014 release and set photos from the production have begun to leak. Among them, Hugh Laurie as a mysterious doctor and, most intriguing, images of Walt Disney’s “It’s A Small World” ride and costumed characters from Alice in Wonderland and the Three Little Pigs.
