De opnames van Walt Disney Pictures‘ Project T (originele titel Tomorrowland) zijn twee weken geleden begonnen, maar nu heeft de studio een synopsis vrijgegeven. De door Brad Bird geregisseerde film werd de afgelopen maanden omhuld door geheimen. De officiële synopsis luidt als volgt:
“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.”
Daarnaast wordt er iets meer informatie gegeven over Project T:
“The “Tomorrowland” that they keep referring to in this break-down appears to be a place where science has blown past the world we live in, and when Frank Walker was a young man, he first encountered the promise of Tomorrowland at the 1964 World’s Fair. David Nix was there, showing off his own work, and he told Walker to come back when he was older and his inventions actually worked. A girl named Athena saw great promise in 11-year-old Frank, though, and she snuck him into Tomorrowland. Eventually, Frank was discovered by Nix and thrown out, but not before learning that the girl he loved, Athena, was actually a robot.
By the time we meet Frank in the film, he’s much older, and George Clooney is set to play the part. Nix is the role that Hugh Laurie is signed for, and by the point the main story of the film kicks in, Nix has been the mayor of Tomorrowland for many years, and he’s become rotten, corrupt. Athena, unchanged since Frank was a young man, plays a key role in the film, and the hero is a girl named Casey who has a quick scientific mind that becomes important as the story unfolds. Nix is a guy who values technical accomplishment over creative thinking, and when he throws Frank out of Tomorrowland, he’s not alone. Every creative thinker is banished, allowing Nix to focus purely on aesthetics and technical advancement for its own sake.”
Het scenario van deze film is geschreven door Damon Lindelof, Brad Bird en Jeff Jensen. Zij hebben enkele weken geleden nog een kleine hint gegeven naar het plot van de film. Dat deden ze door een doos met verschillende voorwerpen te openen, waarin zogenaamd verschillende objecten van Walt Disney zaten.
