While Dr. Fronkensteen and I were at Comic Con we had the fabulous opportunity to sit in on the Big Hero 6/ Tomorrowland panel. Now you've already seen what Dr. Fronkensteen had to say about the Big Hero 6 half of the panel. But now it's my turn and we are off to Tomorrowland.
For those of you who aren't Disney fanatics (LEAVE!) Tomorrowland if a section of the Magic Kingdom in Disney World and a land is Disney land. It is the land of the future and endless possibilities. Many of us Disney fans have been waiting for this land-themed film and wondering what it would be all about.
The first thing we saw was the trailer (teaser). It was vague but just from that Tomorrowland looks like its going to be epic! After that George Clooney made a surprise entrance with a new teaser clip. I'm inclined to believe that Clooney coming in was both a last minute and a planned thing, He found time during his honeymoon to do his first comic con. That was EPIC!
In a way it reminds me a lot like Escape from Witch Mountain. There is action, adventure, chase scenes (yes I saw all of this at Comic Con).The clip we saw was exciting but now I will wonder if I'm invested in the story. Don't get me wrong, you can't get an entire plot from a clip. I just wonder if it's the adventure of a man and a young girl trying to find the land of tomorrow in an attempt to save the world. Dr. Fronkensteen says ditto on the Escape from Witch Mountain. Looks like they're going for a retro Disney movie flair with a new sense of wonder. Paying Homage to Witch Mountain, Herbie, Apple Dumpling Gang.
I'll have to wait until the movie comes out next year to get a full opinion. But just know it looks awesome, retro and with Brad Bird (Incredibles) behind it, it has to be good!
