Directed and co-written by Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Ratatouille) the mysterious movie centers on a bright, optimistic teen who joins forces with a disillusioned former boy-genius inventor who embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place called Tomorrowland.

The film stars George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Britt Robertson, Raffey Cassidy and Thomas Robinson. The film is produced by Bird, Damon Lindelof (Star Trek Into Darkness, Prometheus) and Jeffrey Chernov (Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol). The screenplay is written by Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof from a story by Lindelof, Jeff Jensen and Brad Bird.

Jeff Jensen and John Walker (The Incredibles) will executive produce with Bernard Bellew (Les Misérables, 28 Weeks Later) and Tom Peitzman, VFX producer (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Alice in Wonderland) serving as co-producers.

Disney will release Tomorrowland on December 12, 2014.

    I wish Brad Bird smooth sailing on his latest Robot Movie. Vancouver is such a magical place to do location shots. I plan to do some stuff there next summer.
