Lost in the Star Wars news of this afternoon is that Disney’s Tomorrowland is moving from a December 2014 release to just before Memorial Day in 2015.
Directed by Brad Bird, the Disney film was written by Damon Lindelof, Jeff Jensen, and Bird. The film shares it’s name with the futuristic themed park that is found at various Disney theme parks around the world, including Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom in Orlando.
The film features a cast that includes George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Britt Robertson, Raffey Cassidy, Thomas Robinson, Kathryn Hahn, Judy Greer, and Tim McGraw. Clooney stars as Frank Walker while Robinson plays the younger version of the character.
Since Bird and Lindelof have remained rather quiet when it comes to what exactly the film is about, all that is known about the project comes from the Tomorrowland website:
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.”
Combined with this EW article, it gives off the vibe of an old-school science-fiction film.
