So The Plot For Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof's TOMORROWLAND Is Revealed (Maybe)...
Everyone's wondering about Brad Bird's TOMORROWLAND, and what the movie could be about. For me, it's enough that Brad Bird is involved, and that he's making a science fiction movie with Damon Lindelof, and that he's playing with Disney iconography. I've never been a fan of the whole "puzzle box" mode of marketing. The little hints that are thrown out like scraps of meat for dogs irritate more than enlighten, and while I understand that they want to build up anticipation for their movie, and return us to those days when we knew practically nothing about a movie before we sat down to it, I'd much rather know the basics and let the movie surprise me on its own. I trust Brad Bird completely as a filmmaker, so my ticket is already bought.
But yeah, I'm curious, especially after Bird's tweet photos of a quite-literal puzzle box, and now it seems that Drew McWeeny of HitFix has cracked the whole premise wide open. And it sounds like a blast. It sounds unique. And it sounds like Disney has found another movie to have fun with their theme park concept. According to Hitfix, TOMORROWLAND is about:
A teenage girl, a genius middle-aged man (who was kicked out of Tomorrowland) and a pre-pubescent girl robot attempt to get to and unravel what happened to Tomorrowland, which exists in an alternative dimension, in order to save Earth.
