It was just yesterday when we got the first images and official details on Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland, his upcoming sci-fi adventure that is helping to kick off next summer. Today, following a debut at the New York Comic-Con panel, the first teaser trailer has landed, which is light on story, but sets up the introduction to the mysterious world found in the Disney tentpole.
With a script from Damon Lindelof, Bird, and Jeff Jensen, the story centers on Britt Robertson‘s Casey Newtown, a teenager living near Cape Canaveral who comes across a mysterious pin that reveals to her the titular place of wonder (seen below in concept art from Syd Mead). She then connects with George Clooney’s Frank Walker, a shut-in, down-and-out inventor who knows what the girl has seen in her visions, thus beginning the adventure.
Also starring Hugh Laurie, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key and Thomas Robinson, check out the teaser trailer below, along with the first poster.
From Disney comes two-time Oscar® winner Brad Bird’s “Tomorrowland,” a riveting mystery adventure starring Academy Award® winner George Clooney. Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank (Clooney), jaded by disillusionment, and Casey (Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity, 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.
Tomorrowland arrives on May 22nd, 2015.
