Speculation is HIGHlarious and fun, and it's super easy to guess what an upcoming science-fiction movie will be about — especially when Brad Bird and Disney are behind it, because anything's the limit!
Brad's upcoming Tomorrowland has been just as active in the rumor-mill department as the upcoming Star Wars, and all it took was on little box of old memorabilia labeled 1952, which was the original secret name for the movie. The box contained pictures of Walt Disney himself, which made people think it was going to be a biopic, while a copy of a 1928 issue of Amazing Stories magazine had others guessing at a possible Buck Rogers adaptation!
The real title, of course, is Tomorrowland — but that made people go even MORE nuts over the plot! Ideas swirled around George Clooney (who is attached to star) dealing with alien technology in a setting reminiscent of Disneyland's actual Tomorrowland park area.
"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."
That sounds… confusing!
The source continues:
"There's interdimensional travel, human-looking robots, and a quest for revenge … [as well as the hero] rediscovering the kid he used to be."
We don't know what to think about this, other than we get the feeling that Brad Bird would be taking something on that's… well… BETTER than this! In the right hands, perhaps it's better than we're imagining! It just doesn't sound like something that deserves so much secrecy!
Sounds like we have a LOT to learn before December 2014!!
