Full 'Tomorrowland' Trailer Reveals Disney's Scifi Wonderland

Want to hop into a bath tub escape pod alongside George Clooney and blast off into a world of wonder, a scientific utopia where anything and everything is possible?

You're in luck, because Disney has just unveiled the full theatrical trailer for Tomorrowland, this summer's most mysterious mega-movie.

It's not a comic book movie, a sequel, a reboot, or a prequel.  It's a sci-fi fantasy adventure that takes some inspiration from the Disneyland® locale.  In the film, this trailer reveals, Tomorrowland is a secret place, a realm where the greatest and most ambitious minds created a sandbox for unbridled scientific potential, a place where fuel burns clean, where rocket packs and robots are plentiful.

Britt Robertson stars as Casey Newton, a bright, scientifically curious teenager who accidentally catches a glimpse of Tomorrowland.  In order to actually visit the technological wonderland, Casey teams up with Frank Walker, played by Clooney.  Walker, a disillusioned former child prodigy who was exiled from the titular setting long ago, gets them to Tomorrowland, where they discover that, for the first time ever, something is rotten in dreamland.

With Robertson and Clooney leading Tomorrowland, the cast also includes Hugh Laurie, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key, Pierce Gagnon, Lochlyn Monroe, and Tim McGraw.

The full trailer doesn't reveal all of Tomorrowland's secrets, but it does give by far our best sense of the film, which feels playful, nimble, and hopeful in a way that not many blockbusters are these days.

Just last week, Disney dropped a Tomorrowland poster that conspicuously left out Robertson, who you might just recognize from Under the Dome.

Brad Bird, the animation master behind The Incredibles, The Iron Giant, and Ratatouille, proved his live action bona fides with Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.  Having proven he can work magic with blockbuster setpieces and a zippy pace, Bird ups his world-building game with Tomorrowland, which he wrote with Damon Lindelof and Jeff Jensen.

“What Hogwarts is to magic, Tomorrowland is to science: They are both easy to find if you are a wizard and very difficult to find if you’re a Muggle,” Lindelof, who also produces, said last year. “Walt Disney is not a character in our movie, but he is referenced as having some involvement in this mysterious place called Tomorrowland, as a huge futurist and aficionado of space travel, rocketry, cities of the future, and space travel."

Newton, Lindelof explained, "is a Muggle who accidentally wanders across Platform 9 ¾ and sees something she probably shouldn’t have.”

Savor the mysteries of Tomorrowland for now, because the film is due in theaters and IMAX on May 22nd.
