Disney is finally prepping the stages for Tomorrowland, as they’ve unveiled the first trailer for the film that really gives you an idea of what the movie all about. The film, starring George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, and Britt Robertson, is a new science fiction and adventure film directed by Academy Award winner Brad Bird (The Incredibles, The Iron Giant, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocal) and written by Damon Lindelof, set in a futuristic world known as Tomorrowland.
There’s a real sense of awe and adventure in the trailer that seems so lacking in films, and even more intriguing is that it’s a brand new idea, even if it’s based on the IP of a Disney theme park section. That alone has me excited by the potential of it, and the DNA of the film from two of my favorite creative types has me that much more excited for what’s to come. This trailer is just very well put together, and has finally really gotten my interest in the film peaked. I can’t wait to see what Bird and Lindelof have in store for us.
Tomorrowland opens on May 22, 2015.
