Review - Our Take On TOMORROWLAND
As mentioned in our TAKE ME TO TOMORROWLAND post, Tomorrowland at Walt Disney World holds a special place in my heart. It was amazing to see this popular Disney World attraction come to life on the big screen. Starting at the World's Fair (where Tomorrowland was launched by Walt Disney) and letting us know IT'S A SMALL WORLD AFTER ALL this film travelled both backward and forward through time, while inspiring and exciting the audience.
The social messages in this movie reminded me of Disney Pixar's WALL-E and it's premise to inspire others to make changes now in order to create a better future. The film itself was like seeing a next level version of Walt Disney World's Tomorrowland Park. Everything from monorails to smiling friendly faces ready to create a bold new futuristic world, and while the It's A Small World ride has an impact at the beginning of the movie, the ending of the film brings the memorable song full circle.
We suggest this film for families with older tweens and teens.
Let us know your review of Disney's Tomorrowland in the comments! Below is a brief description of the film courtesty of Walt Disney Studios Canada.
From Disney comes two-time Oscar® winner Brad Bird’s riveting, mystery adventure “Tomorrowland,” 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.
Featuring a screenplay by “Lost” writer and co-creator Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird, from a story by Lindelof & Bird & Jeff Jensen, “Tomorrowland” promises to take audiences on a thrill ride of nonstop adventures through new dimensions that have only been dreamed of.
