    Now THAT's what Tomorrowland should look like...!

    Check out the second half of the newest Walle trailer - - the portion on the starship - - Looks like Tomorrowland at Disneyland should!

    Isn't that a coicidence, when the first part of the trailer,
    where WALL-E is on earth all by himself, no one else around,
    with all the rust and brown remnants of what used to be, very
    much look like Tomorrowland, after the '98 makeover was
    complete! Rust and Brown, and no one around!

    Dunno if I'd go with that exact design scheme for Tomorrowland, but I will say that this movie definitely has the potential to become my favorite Pixar movie.

    Love how Hello Dolly is shown in the movie too! Such a random moment!

    Nah - too much like something that could be built now with existing technologies. Too many flat surfaces, straight lines and right angles - where are the curves? My view of Tomorrowland would be beyond what we are capable of building today. Organics and harnessing of the biological. More of a Taelon feel...

    To me that says tomorrow - something beyond a simple extension of what we already know today - into what could be an extension of the things yet to discover.

    We will discover new things rather than rely on just what we know oe exists today.

    Re: Now THAT's what Tomorrowland should look like...!

    A couple of things, Sambo:

    * If Tomorrowland looked like it couldn't be built today, how could it be built today? And built, moreover, for a reasonable cost?
    * Curvier aesthetics may be the way of the future, but they can be stylistically grating for some people, too.
    * Whatever is done to Tomorrowland, it needs to have a hint of familiarity in order to still feel reassuring. It can't be so imaginative and bizarre that it creates psychological stress.
    * Would that style mesh well at all with Space Mountain, arguably the most thematically rock-solid and likely-to-remain attraction in the land?

    Re: Now THAT's what Tomorrowland should look like...!

    I understand what you are saying... I wasn't saying we need to change everything. I also believe the future will be more like Blade Runner - a hodgepodge of different times. The older having the new built on it. That is pretty much how we humans approach growth and development. Add newer styles and technologies over the old rather than replace it wholesale. I was saying I see the newer technologies as more biological and organic looking rather than just more of the same boxes. Remember - the Monsanto house of the future had curved walls and planar windows. The styles can combine.

    I dunno... that visual look really doesn't appeal to me. It's alien, that's for sure. But it doesn't feel like the future. It just reminds me of an arcade in Vegas or something.

    Re: Now THAT's what Tomorrowland should look like...!

    In 1922 this was their future...



    Their actual future when it came to pass (today) was partly familliar and partly that which they couldn't imagine, or imagined way differently than how it played out. That is to me what the future is. Partly familliar, and partly things that are vastly different than how we imagine them to be. That would therefore have a somewhat alien feel to it.

    I don't see it. The image that is.

    Undoubtedly, you're right. But that doesn't mean Tomorrowland has to reflect that. Tomorrowland should be a fantasy of the future--a vision of a possible future, seen through a Disney lens. And one of the key components of Disneyland's exteriors' visual success is the fact that you don't have different styles competing against each other. Instead, you have variations on a theme or architectural movement. The variations all work together, contrasting nicely but not too extremely. When the time comes to switch themes, the spaces between feature smooth transitions. Around the River Belle Terrace, for instance, you have a blend of New Orleans Square, Frontierland, and Adventureland.

    I'm probably preaching to the choir, I know. But I firmly believe that what Tomorrowland needs is coherence of visual style, not a more realistic blend of feels.
