Casey Newton is an optimistic teenage who has a deep passion for discovery science. Frank Walker was a boy prodigy inventor who lost his hunger for curiosity long ago. Now they share a destiny and begin on a dangerous adventure to find a place that only exists in the space of their memories – Tomorrowland.
From the director of The Incredibles, Brad Bird, comes an action packed drama that will make you question what you know about the human mind. And he’s picked an outstanding cast. North Carolina’s 25-year-old Britt Robertson (Under the Dome’s Angie) plays Casey. Kentucky’s 53-year-old George Clooney (The Monuments Men’s Frank Stokes) acts as Frank. Also among the cast is Illinois’ 40-year-old Kathryn Hahn (Happyish’s Lee), Michigan’s 39-year-old Judy Greer (Arrested Development’s Kitty), and England’s 56-year-old Hugh Laurie (House’s House).
