Disney’s Tomorrowland is all about optimism – it’s utopia to so many of Hollywood’s recent dystopian movies.
Geeks will enjoy the jetpacks, wind turbines and bunch of today’s and tomorrow’s tech. Movie geeks will enjoy all the Easter eggs buried throughout the movie. Epcot fans will enjoy the rides of the future. Clooney fans will like him even though he is unshaven most of the movie. Nice start to summer crop of movies.

“Space exploration and the technological possibilities of the future provide the movie's backdrop. Elaborate sets, highly specialized CGI work and animation combine to bring the story to fruition. For Clooney, the film's message is critical: "Your future's not preordained and predestined. A single voice can make a difference. I believe in that."
"The movie is filled with innovative people with innovative minds," said NASA's Burt Ulrich, who coordinated scenes shot on an actual Cape Canaveral launch pad and to ensure anything related to NASA "was portrayed accurately." Not only were scenes filmed at NASA, but Tim McGraw's Ed Newton is a NASA engineer who inspires his scientifically adept and curious daughter Casey (Britt Robertson) to ensure a promising future. Urich said Newton is "an inspired character." The scenes shot at NASA also featured additions "done later in CGI."”
