Let’s Do Lunch
The idea of the movie Tomorrowland came up during a casual conversation between Damon Lindelof (Producer and Screenplay writer) and Sean Bailey (President of Disney Production) during a business lunch. During their conversation Sean Bailey mentioned there were some fantasy princess movies in the pipeline at Disney but wondered what Disney movie should be next. So, Damon Lindelof suggested they make a movie called Tomorrowland, and that was the beginning of a new adventure.
Piece of Cake
Tim McGraw found the role of (Eddie Newton) was an easy part to play since he has three daughters. As stated by Mr. McGraw “During the scene where Britt Robertson (Casey Newton) and I are in the car, we had a long conversation about life and guys. It reminded me of some of the conversations; I’ve had with my daughters. In fact, I had to be upset in that scene, and I had just been upset with my daughter”.
George Clooney (Frank Walker) felt it was bold for Disney to be willing to do a film that was not a sequel or comic book. He loved that the movie stressed we can all make a difference. As Stated by Mr. Clooney, “We see generations now feeling as if it is, sort of, hopeless, in a way. I love how the movie speaks to the idea that your future is not preordained and predestined. I believe that, If you’re involved, a single voice can make a difference”.
Your Voice Matters
Although George Clooney grew up during the Cold War period, he remained hopeful. Stating ”I grew up in an era where one’s voice really did matter. We had the riots that are reminiscent of the things we are looking at today; The Civil Rights Movement, Vietnam and Women’s Rights Movements. These events made you feel like you could actually take part, and individual voices did make a huge difference”.
The launchpad scene where shot at NASA launch pad at Cape Canaveral. As stated by Brad Bird (Director) “The chance to shoot at NASA was fantastic, and to be on this launchpad were so many noble journeys started. We got to watch a launch from the launchpad, which was one of the coolest moments on the film“.
