“What if there was a place, a secret place where nothing was impossible? A miraculous place where you could actually change the world. You wanna go?”

It’s finally here! Disney has released the first full-length trailer for Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof’s mystery adventure ‘Tomorrowland’ featuring tons of new footage. Check it out!

Here are some highlights from director Brad Bird and producer Damon Lindelof’s live Q&A on Facebook they had before the release of the new trailer:

Mary Strother: The word “Tomorrowland” always reminds me of the older generation of science fiction, and the technology of the 1950’s. How inspired were you by old science fiction ideas about where humanity would be in the future?

Brad Bird: I was not inspired by old science fiction as much as I was inspired by how the future used to be seen in contrast to how it’s seen today.

Barbara Raekson: What made you consider and select Hugh Laurie as David Nix?

Damon Lindelof: Hugh was, quite literally, the only actor we considered for the part. We needed someone who could:

A. Be very, very smart.

B. Be very, very funny.

C. Go toe to toe with George as to who is the greatest former TV doctor.

Nick Astrinakis: I love movies about secret & hard to reach powerful MacGuffins & this is fascinating in that Tomorrowland is uncovering long hidden Disney secrets & MacGuffins. Is there a special inspiration in finding & then bringing to the screen a level of creative secrets that can’t usually be found on the surface of a produced story that requires extra digging & searching?

Damon Lindelof: One of our inspirations was all the hidden Mickeys in the parks… the idea that the Imagineers themselves want to reward the super fans is something we really plugged into!

Ren Siyuan: Hello Brad&Damon, I’m a fan of George’s. Why did you choose him as the lead in the first place? Since normally he won’t do many Sci-fi films. What does George Clooney have in common with Frank Walker? Very excited for the film, thanks.

Brad Bird: George was our first choice. Luckily he accepted. Integrity is a key part of his persona. The fact that he hasn’t done a lof films like this speaks to that. He only gets involved with things he believes in. That’s also true of Frank Walker the character George plays in Tomorrowland. He’s a great actor and he’s funny.

Daniel Tripi: Will we see any Disney characters in the movie?

Damon Lindelof: If you look REALLY carefully, you’ll see The White Rabbit from ALICE IN WONDERLAND and THE BIG BAD WOLF from THREE LITTLE PIGS!

Matthew Soberman: What Disney Parks attractions influenced/inspired you when creating this movie?

Damon Lindelof: Brad turned me on to some of the classic Tomorrowland attractions like “Carousel of Progress.” The way the future was viewed from the PAST was really intriguing to us.

Mike Messina: What was it about Britt Robertson that led to choosing her as your lead and how would you describe her character?

Damon Lindelof: A zillion talented young actors auditioned for Casey, but Britt was the one who most embodied what we were looking for — a hopefulness and optimism that felt fresh without being corny. Casey is a dreamer… and explorer… a young woman who refuses to accept the status quo. We felt Britt embodied all of the above.
