I am always excited to know that Brad Bird is doing another movie. I loved The Incredibles and Ratatouille, thoroughly enjoyed The Iron Giant and Ghost Protocol. And especially after reading this Q&A with director-writer Bird and co-writer Damon Lindhof (the guy responsible for Lost), I really want to see Tomorrowland.
If you don’t have the time or interest to read the Q&A, the important point is that Bird and Lindhof saw that since Planet of the Apes all storytelling about the future has been dystopian. So why not make a movie that is optimistic about the future? The prospect of an optimistic future doesn’t excite me—but the prospect of a different kind of story does!
And these two trailers just fuel my enthusiasm.
