Tomorrowland is Tame and Tangled

It was July of 1955, only a year after America decided it was unconstitutional to keep white and black students in separate schools. It was the beginning of what would become one of the most important movements in our nation. Our country was looking forward to the future and so was one of the greatest innovators of all-time, Walt Disney. In fact, he wanted to create a “land” dedicated to the future, to the possibilities of a united and marvelous world. He called it Tomorrowland.

It opened July 17 to be exact, and Disney gave this description during the dedication to the millions of television viewers. “[Tomorrowland is] a vista into a world of wondrous ideas, signifying Man’s achievements…A step into the future, with predictions of constructed things to come. Tomorrow offers new frontiers in science, adventure and ideas. The Atomic Age, the challenge of Outer Space and the hope for a peaceful, unified world.” Now, 60 years after it opened, director Brad Bird, brings the world a movie based on Tomorrowland.
