another Disney attraction gets its own film, this time it is Tomorrowland with Brad Bird directing.  we heard about a mysterious film project called '1952' during the Star Wars Episode 7 director speculation, well, this is it.

Most were thinking it was a Disney biopic.  I guess it still could be.

Is Clooney the one who's attached to this?

yeah, Clooney is attached.  found another article that mentions:

Quote
George Clooney is starring in a story that supposedly is about a man who encounters alien life on Earth.

My guess:  a fictionalized Walt discovers aliens that inspire him to build Tomorrowland.

Maybe it's not fictionalized at all.

Here is a fascinating article written by a man who seems to have cracked the code of what's in the box.

Biggest clue in there may be that blue book, it turns out.  As in, some sort of project based around that...

Spoiler for Hiden:
Project Blue Book!

Apparently, Disney made a lot of government films during WWII and were very discreet.  They made an animated documentary for television about the likelihood of space travel that was not only hugely popular, but may have had a direct influence on the decision to really enter the space race.  Based on these two factors, Disney was approached to put together an animated piece that would break the news to the American public that UFOs were real.

I am now officially extremely excited to see this movie.

the plot revealed! (or has it?  paranoid)

That description sounds terrible.

The more detailed one in the article sounds better and, frankly, much more Brad Bird:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Quote
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.
 

That was an interesting article, too.  I totally agree that while these mysterious teaser scenarios may drum up hype, it can quickly become the wrong kind of hype.  I do remember being disappointed that Cloverfield wasn't a Cthulhu movie (still enjoyed it, though).

and another brief plot summary:

Quote
Bound by a shared destiny, a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor jaded by disillusionment embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory as “Tomorrowland.”

They've put out a teaser trailer for this one with release date set for next May.  I can't tell much, but as others have said it's Brad Bird so I'm in.
