Disney Sort of Revealed What 'Tomorrowland' Is All About


Like most things writer Damon Lindelof gets involved with, Tomorrowland has been surrounded by secrecy and clues that you're right to worry won't pay off, even with Brad Bird directing. All we've learned about the film so far has come from this box of old Disney-themed stuff, which Lindelof and Bird revealed in photograph at the beginning of the year and, earlier this month, they showed off the contents to D23 expo crowds, who were like, "So... Clooney's going to root around Walt Disney's attic or something?" The answer still isn't entirely clear, but with principal photography now starting in Vancouver, the studio has put out an official summary that at least sort of hints at the plot. Expect this:

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."

So "Tomorrowland" is an extremely convoluted excuse for why a 50-year-old man is running around with a curious teenager?
