In this featurette for Disney’s Tomorrowland we have the two stars, George Clooney and Britt Robertson, with screenwriter Damon Lindelof and Director Brad Bird explaining the premise of the movie.

In the video George Clooney, who plays Frank Walker, tells us that “Tomorrowland is a place for dreamers. It is place were science and exploration are able to grow together to make the world a better place”.

Co-star Britt Robertson, who plays Casey Newton, tells us of her characters journey “She goes into Tomorrowland, it’s almost like it’s not there. As soon as she lets go of the pen it is not there, as soon as she lets go of the pen it is gone.”

Screenwriter Damon Lindelof, who is known for Lost (2004), Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) and World War Z (2013), explains that “The promise of Tomorrowland is the future is what we make of it. We have to go out and make that change ourselves.
Director Brad Bird sums up, “It is more about the journey than it is the destination. Tomorrowland is “a little bit of mystery, a little bit of adventure, mixed together in a very new way”.
