Disney’s Futuristic ‘Tomorrowland’ Rejects Dystopian Tropes With An Optimistic Call To Action

tomorrowland


A few minutes into “Tomorrowland,” it becomes clear that Disney’s latest live-action adventure isn’t going to brood over the apocalypse or depict a purely desolate future. Instead, the movie blends sci-fi and fantasy with realism to depict a world where hope is the only antidote to extinction.

In “Tomorrowland,” directed by Brad Bird and co-written by Bird and Damon Lindelof (with Jeff Jensen earning a story credit), we first meet Frank Walker (George Clooney), a once bright-eyed young boy with innovative dreams, as a now-hardened cynic in the present day. We learn what shattered Frank’s buoyancy when Casey Newton (Britt Robertson) backtracks to tell her story as a teen determined to save the future of a doomed NASA rocket launch site. After finding a mysterious pin secretly given to her by a young British girl, Athena (Raffey Cassidy), Casey is briefly transported to the futuristic world of Tomorrowland. But the real future turns out not to be as bright and shiny: A clock counts down to a predicted apocalypse, prompting Casey, Athena and Frank to try to save the fate of a crumbling planet Earth.

With the awe of “Alice in Wonderland” and a hint of the futurism of “WALL-E,” Bird’s “Tomorrowland” feels very much like a Disney-fueled vehicle, but one which heavily cashes in on the power of positive thought — think of the best-seller The Secret, which Lindelof named-dropped while discussing “Tomorrowland.” The movie packs on the cheesy believe-and-you-can-achieve Disney mantra quite heavily, but it’s nevertheless refreshing to see a positive spin on the dreary future that fills the big screen today. “Tomorrowland” has already been labeled the anti-“Hunger Games,” a departure from the typical nihilism.

george clooney

“The future we’re getting fed a steady diet of is sort of post-apocalyptic,” Lindelof told The Huffington Post. “The idea that something kind of terrible happens and now the dregs of humanity are roving the desert in tricked-out cars or shooting arrows at each other, that’s kind of what the future is.” While Lindelof — who, let’s not forget, is the co-creator of “Lost” and HBO’s ultra-depressing “The Leftovers” — admits he loves those types of stories, he wanted to discover what a different kind of future would look like, and whether or not audiences would even want to see it.

While this approach is hardly something we see in movies or on television today, it does reflect a mindset of an earlier generation, before hope was vanquished by pessimism. “When both Damon and I were young, the world was still a rough place,” Bird told HuffPost. “There were wars and injustice and pollution, and all the things we have today, but the attitude towards the future was that we were going to solve all these problems and that the future was this bright thing just over the horizon.”

It was this question of “What happened?” that fascinated Bird and Lindelof, leading them to use Disney’s theme-park land as the inspiration for what the word “Tomorrowland” actually meant to society, then and now. “In a broad sense, it’s about Walt Disney’s view of the future, that it was an exciting thing, that it was a giant opportunity [rather] than this burden we come to think of it as, this coming disaster,” Bird said.

But “Tomorrowland” doesn’t paint a future that is bright and sunny where all of the world’s problems can be solved by making a wish and dreaming big (despite the film’s hefty serving of goofy sentimentalism). No fairy godmother flashes into existence and no magical wand flickers to save our world. The film asks more of its audience than simply sitting back and enjoying the movie, most directly in a monologue delivered by the villainous scientist Nix (Hugh Laurie), who blames the predicted demise of mankind on mankind itself. It’s a moment where “Tomorrowland” breaks the fourth wall and holds the viewers responsible for the apocalypse that could come if we succumb to resignation.

“The big cosmic shrug, I don’t get,” Bird said. The director made a point to claim “Tomorrowland” isn’t necessarily a political film, but he does hope that audiences walk away with some sense of desire to contribute to a better future. Robertson echoed that sentiment: “I think it’s important for audiences when they see a movie like this to take that into consideration and maybe work it into their own life in trying to put forth actions that contribute to a more optimistic future.”

tomorrowland britt

But Bird knows that the Cinderella model — “a dream is a wish your hearts makes” — isn’t all it takes. “Dreaming is great and crucial, but dreaming is step one,” Bird said. “All the rest of the steps are putting the dream into motion and asking and deciding what future you want and making every decision drive towards that future.”

Whether or not you walk away from “Tomorrowland” feeling inspired with a sense of hope and activism, or simply dazzled by the visuals, it’s at least reassuring to see a major summer movie evading the usual dystopian cliches. “I don’t want to be holed in a house eating from a tin can of beans as zombies scrape at the door,” Lindof said. “I want to watch it, I don’t want to live it. So why not make one that has a future that I would want to live in?”

“Tomorrowland” is now playing in theaters.

Eden Sher voices Disney’s first kick-butt princess for Star vs. the Forces of Evil

By her own admission, Eden Sher lives in an almost perpetual state of hyperbole.

“That’s why I always have to try and keep myself in check,” this 24 year-old actress admitted during a recent phone interview. “Otherwise — whenever anyone asks me what I’m working on now — my automatic response is that it’s ‘ … THE BEST THING EVER!’ “

Mind you, it’s easy to understand why this Critics’ Choice winner (Sher took home the Television Award for Best Comedy Supporting Actress in 2013) is so upbeat these days, given the year that Sue Heck (i.e., the character that Eden plays on ABC‘s long-running sitcom, The Middle) has been having. Between the stresses that this college-bound senior has been facing while applying to schools — not to mention being blindsided by a surprise marriage proposal from her boyfriend Darrin — Heck, as a character, has been giving Sher a heck of a lot of fun stuff to play over the past year.

2015-03-30-1427691600-5571309-Eden1.jpg

But since The Middle just finished shooting its sixth season this past Friday, Eden is now pouring her over abundance of enthusiasm into her next project, Star vs. the Forces of Evil. Which is this brand-new animated series which will debut on Disney XD tonight at 8 p.m. ET / PT.

“As someone who just loves animation and comic books, I have to say that I have never seen a character like Star Butterfly before. She is Disney’s first-ever kick-butt princess. And I am just thrilled beyond words that they chose me to voice this character,” Sher said.

Mind you, when Eden originally auditioned for this part back in 2013, she wasn’t sure that the show’s producers actually did want her to be the voice of Star. Who’s this wand-toting teenage princess from another dimension who’s been sent to Earth to live with the Diaz family.

2015-03-30-1427692752-3891820-Eden4.jpg

“I come from the live-action world. Where if you audition for a part, you typically find out that day — at the absolute latest, by the end of the week — whether or not you got the part,” Sher explained. “So when I went in and auditioned for Star, it kind of killed me that, by the end of that week, they still hadn’t called. Because from the very first second that I got the breakdown for this character, I just loved Star. I so wanted to be the voice of this character. But when I didn’t hear back from Daron (Nefcy, the creator / producer of Star vs. the Forces of Evil), I just assumed that I didn’t get it. So I was like ‘Well, that sucks. It wasn’t me. I guess that it will be someone else.’ And then I just forgot about it.”

But then two months later when Eden found that she had in fact been cast as the voice of Star Butterfly, Sher began bouncing off the walls with glee. Which proved to be a bit of a problem once Eden got in the recording booth.

“You have to understand that this was the very first time that I had voiced a character for animation. So since I didn’t know what the hell I was doing, I began jumping around the booth while I was recording Star’s lines for the pilot. And they actually had to stop this recording session to explain that the mics that they use are so sensitive that they can actually pick up when you’re moving around inside the booth. So I had to then teach myself how to stand still while I was recording Star’s lines. Which is tougher than you might think because Star Butterfly is such an active and awesome character,” Sher enthused.

2015-03-30-1427692005-2590291-Eden3.jpg

And clearly animation fans agree with Eden. Given that — just based on the title sequence of this new Disney XD series (which was shown once just before a Disney Television Animation panel got underway at Comic-Con last July but wound up being captured on someone’s iPhone and then get uploaded to YouTube) — Star vs. the Forces of Evil fan art began popping up all over the Internet last Fall.

“I remember coming in for a recording session about that same time and seeing all of this Star fan art up on the walls at Disney Television Animation. And I asked ‘Does stuff like this typically happen before a show officially goes on the air?’ And they told me that this almost never happens. That animation fans usually have to see a few episodes before they then decide whether they want to embrace a new show or not. But in Star vs. the Forces of Evil‘s case, that title sequence was all they needed to see. Once they saw Star & Marco jumping from dimension to dimension, they then realized that this show was going to be something special. Which is when they started sending in all of these drawings of the show’s characters,” Sher stated.

And it wasn’t just animation fans who liked what they saw with Star vs. the Forces of Evil. Disney XD officials were so impressed with the finished episodes of this new animated series that they’d received that they actually renewed Star for Season 2 back on February 12th of this year. Which was a full six weeks before the first episode of Star vs. the Forces of Evil was officially scheduled to air on Disney XD.

“And news like that would have normally freaked me out,” Eden admitted. “But I believe so strongly in this show and the character of Star, who’s this vaguely aggressive girly princess. Honestly, I’ve never identified so much with a cartoon character before. I mean, Star is so much like me in that she’s always wrong. She’s always messing up. But at the same time, this character has such a good heart. Star is fiercely loyal when it comes to her friends and never backs down from a fight. There’s so much going on there. And that’s what makes this character so much fun to voice,” Sher concluded.

“I just wish that — when I was growing up — that there would have been a television show on with a character like Star Butterfly. Because if I were a little girl and had a character like Star that I could have idolized, I would have …,” Eden paused and then laughed. “Well, I probably would have turned out exactly the same. But if there’s a generation of little girls who actually do wind up being inspired by this character that Daron has created, Disney’s first kick-butt princess … Oh boy, I am more than ready for that. I would love to be associated with a project like that. That would be a dream come true for me.”

If you want to see if Sher’s dream really does come true, do check out tonight’s premiere of Star vs. the Forces of Evil. Which airs on Disney XD starting at 8 p.m. ET / PT.

Since most of us can only spend a few days at Disney, we need to make every golden minute count. This means that each family or group member needs to choose ahead of time the specific rides, attractions, and dining options that fit their particular interests and age… and then plan accordingly. That’s where I and my team of “Disney Geeks” come in. We’ve already narrowed the challenge for you by concentrating on only The Disney’s Hollywood Studios, a popular Walt Disney World resort park, with its individual areas of Backlot, Mickey Avenue, Animation Courtyard, Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood Boulevard, and Pixar Place. We’ll show you how to use this book—with its maps, descriptions, notations of appropriate age ranges, and tips—and various Web sites, too, as interactive tools to educate you and the kids about every aspect of every ride, attraction, and restaurant. We want everyone to make wise “I wanna” choices and enjoy collaborating to: 1. Create a “Scrapbook of Anticipations” now, which becomes a take-along picture guide to what each person anticipates: • Doing each day in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. • Read, or allow the kids to read, the description of each ride or attraction. • Look at related pictures in the book or visit Web sites listed in the Appendix for photos. • Decide which rides and entertainment they want to experience. • Cut out/tape the pictures of each ride, attraction, entertainment and restaurant into the allotted spaces, just as my granddaughter is doing above. 2) Make a “Keepsake Photo Album” later, whic
