The new Disney movie “Tomorrowland” just released another promotional video clip.
The new video features the cast and crew of the movie as they talk about the influence Walt Disney has had through television specials about him, and theme parks inspired by his movies.
The whole “Tomorrowland” movie is in fact, a nod to various historical and fictional figures and events .
IndieWire enumerated these influences in the movie via videos and photos.
But of course, the biggest inspiration in “Tomorrowland” is Walt Disney’s obsession with sci-fi and technological advancements in science and knowledge.
“Tomorrowland” stars Britt Robertson (“Under The Dome”), as teenager Casey Newton, who unexpectedly discovers a pin that transports her to a theme park calledTomorrowland.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter , Damon Lindelof, the writer of the film, says that Casey “Still believes in this amazing future [even when she is] being fed a steady diet of dystopia.” “There is a piece of technology in this pin, it’s the kind of old-school pin you would wear on your lapel, and when you make physical contact with it, you have the illusion of being physically transported to another world, and that’s how Casey gets her first glimpse of Tomorrowland,” Lindelof added.
“She is a Muggle who accidentally wanders across Platform 9 ¾ and sees something she probably shouldn’t have.” In trying to learn more about this mysterious new place and the pin that brings her there, Casey meets Frank Walker, played by “Monuments Men” star George Clooney.
Walker is an old, reclusive, failed inventor in the “Tomorroland” movie from Disney.
He is described by Lindelof as “a guy who is retreating when something didn’t go well.” According to director Brad Bird, the movie’s main theme revolves around the question: “What’s good about the future and what’s scary about it? And we wrestle with those things in a slightly mythical way.” Watch the new promotional clip for “Tomorrowland” here:
