  • [Chat] Could the Future of Tomorrowland be "Tomorrowland"?

    As many of you probably already know, a Tomorrowland film is in the works. Blue Sky Disney Blog had and interesting article yesterday noting an interview with Damon Lindelof, the author of the upcoming film. I found his quote a little disturbing as I found his idea that his kid thinking that PoTC the attraction came from the film being a good thing showed a lack of appreciation for Imagineering. I also found his description of loving Tomorrowland, but thinking it needs a definitive story seems contradictory. If you liked it without a definitive story, why does it need one now? However, I agree with his assertion that filling TL with Star Wars is not a good solution.

    Now the new Miceage article out today is implying that Tron is being dropped from the new TL attraction, which is a rumor I've now heard from several sources. Which got me thinking, might the new ride to follow the People Mover tracks be based on a vehicle from the upcoming film? It would be somewhat unusual to green light an attraction based on a film so early in development. But the film does have a few things going for it; great director and star and seemingly a lot of backing already from Disney and it's based on something that's already in the park. They might be willing to go that direction early as it should obviously fit the land well despite the risk that the film may not be a huge hit.

    So what do you think? Might the new TL film inspire the new ride for TL and would you be excited or negative about that? What do you think of the quote from the director and what do you think it implies about the film and the possibility for future attractions?

    Here's a link to the article on Blue Sky Disney: Blue Sky Disney: Giving Tomorrow A Past...

    And here's the quote from Damon Lindelof:
    The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

    I thought the article was saying that both Tron and Monsters inc are finalized
    The plan to turn the sleepy northern half of DCA’s Hollywood Land into Monstropolis with a thrill-ride Door Coaster as the featured E Ticket attraction is still moving ahead quickly. At the same time, the other new thrill ride using the ride system once planned for a Tron-themed Lightcycle coaster on the PeopleMover track is also finishing up design work. It’s no longer “if” on these two new E Ticket attractions, it’s “when
    I read the blue sky disney article a while ago, and I agree. I found his thoughts on Potc very strange, but then he redeemed himself with his thoughts on the Star Wars tomorrowland invasion lol. Honestly, if its a good film and worthy of an attraction I wouldn't mind, but I don't want it to become Tomorrowland the movie by Damon Lindelof the land

      Where did you get that quote from?
      MY SIGNATURE:
      Dear Peoplemover Fans, If you want to see a new attraction that at least mimics the 1967 Peoplemover in a future Tomorrowland remodel, you need to write to the powers-that-be, and let them know. If you don't - Then the next time Tomorrowland is remodeled, you will see a land barren of any "Peoplemover" type attraction.

          Note, the quote says, "The ride system Once Planned for a Tron themed Lightcycle Coaster." It certainly sounds to me like an attraction has been green lighted, but the Tron theme is dead.

            I would think so. I don't think I've ever seen a bad Brad Bird film.

            If its a success, the film might inspire a remodel of the land.

                I'm curious if this new lightcycle ride will have a franchise attached to it. Given Disney's track record as of late, it probably will. But it'll be interesting to see what it is. I found it a bit curious that Al did not elaborate on this. I also wonder what is to become of the Iron Man attraction he spoke of sometime back.

                As far as the movie goes, I'm a bit skeptical. As a standalone thing I'm sure it'll be alright (good?), but if their goal is to influence what happens in the park, that doesn't seem like a very sound way to ground a film. In fact, it comes across as a bit egotistical.

                  If the Tron theme is dropped, why use a picture of a light cycle in the article.It would be misleading. A picture of the empty PM track and RJ platform would have been better. I think the Tron theme is staying, there is already two movies out and a third on the way. Why green light a theme when the movie has not come out yet? You don't know if it will be a success or not.

                      There not doing the Star Wars idea any more. A Disney imagineer told me that they are going retro with Tomorrow Land! They are even putting back in the People mover!!!

                        The sad thing is that they have been doing this for quite some time (since before the beginning of this century). The film industry and theme park industry are separate entities that can inspire each other but should not be used to do the other's work. I highly doubt that Universal only makes movies to advertise their theme park attractions.

                          I think its the other way around. Disney uses its theme park attractions as advertising and for maintaining the popularity of their films.

                            This is true.
                            The parks are interactive advertising

                              Imagineers toy with several kinds of ideas all the time. That's the beauty part of the Blue Sky stage used during their creative process. There are tons of ideas that are never brought to fruition. But we'll never know for sure what they've got in store for Tomorrowland until official announcements are made. Which I'm hoping they'll do at the next D23 Expo.
