Have you heard about Walt Disney Studios upcoming movie Tomorrowland? I don’t know about you, but I am so anxious to see this! Well, if you are like me, and you are headed to Walt Disney World or Disneyland soon, you are in luck! Walt Disney Studios announced a collaboration between the Studio, Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. Park guests will get to view a 12-minute sneak peek! Tomorrowland opens in U.S. theaters on May 22, so this is a great treat! Guests will also enjoy an exhibit that features the making of the movie with props, concept artwork and photos from the filming of the movie including exclusive images from the Disney Archives. The sneak peek and exhibit will open April 17 in Tomorrowland at Disneyland Park and on April 18 in Future World at Epcot. This is only available for a limited time, so be sure not to miss it if you are at the Disney Parks!
This is the first time that a sneak peek has been offered at Epcot in Walt Disney World and the first time Walt Disney Studios has teamed up with both parks to showcase an upcoming Disney film with footage and an in-depth look at the making of the film.
The movie is based on the premise that the futuristic city of Tomorrowland could actually exist paying homage to Walt Disney’s vision for both Tomorrowland at Disneyland Resort and Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort where ever-evolving technologies are showcased along with ideas to make the world a better place for all.
Commenting on the exclusive Tomorrowland sneak peek event, Brad Bird, the film’s two-time Oscar-winning director, says,
“We are excited that park guests will be the first to get an extended look at ‘Tomorrowland’ in the part of Disneyland that inspired the film. Tomorrowland is the one section of the park that Walt Disney himself designed to be tied inexorably to constant change. After all, the future is always in motion, continually shifting as humankind’s choices of the present remake the world ahead of us. ‘Tomorrowland’ is a state of mind. My hope is that the exhibit will convey some of the magic that went into bringing this land… and this movie, to life.”
Starring Academy Award-winner George Clooney, Tomorrowland tells the story of former boy-genius Frank (Clooney), jaded by disillusionment, and Casey (Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity, who are bound by a shared destiny and embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as “Tomorrowland.” What they must do there changes the world—and them—forever.
