In this movie we follow, a young girl named Casey (Britt Robertson) who is given a Tomorrowland token by Athena (Raffey Cassidy) who asks her to help Frank (George Clooney) to shut down the machine he built when he was a boy before it destroys the world.
This movie is based on a part of Magic Kingdom at Disney World and they do not shy away from that fact in the movie. If you have been to the park enough times, you will see the little Easter eggs from the park (like seeing the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland).
It is a fun movie that many kids will certainly like. It has adventure, comedy, and truly embraces your imagination. Like many other Disney movies, it encourages the audience to go after your dreams and to never stop imagining.
Since it is a Disney movie, there is going to be an underlying message. We get it in the form of Nix’s (Hugh Laurie) speech at the climax of the movie. He talks about Earth and a self-fulfilling prophecy and how it is us that is making the world so bad. If you really listen to the speech, you will truly be touched.
George Clooney was of course amazing as always, but Raffrey Cassidy stole the show. She was able to keep up with A-list actor in Clooney and by the end of the movie you are more attached to her then any other character in the movie.
Despite the good message and the good chemistry between Clooney, Cassidy, and Robertson, the movie does run a bit long. There are times when you will be looking at your watch wondering how much longer it is going to be. Unfortunately, it’s not something that can be fixed because that it’s that time that is needed to explain the bigger picture. It’s just very boring to watch.
