“Tomorrow” — the third trailer, is this Walt Disney’s theme park come to (cinematic) life?

The mysterious and cryptic early talk about Disney’s “Tomorrowland” (May 22) is that it connected with early ideas that Walt Disney himself had — notes — about the Tomorrowland part  of the theme parks, and a possible movie tied into them.

The third action-packed trailer to the most anticipated movie of the summer suggests something more conventional — effects, action beats, George Clooney yelling “Come on,” and cracking “You ain’t seen NOTHIN’ yet.” But it still seems to connect with Walt’s expansive, fanciful 1950s idea of what the sci-fi “future” would look like.

It looks like fun. And maybe it means they’ll finally update and spend the money on that concept of their parks, using the movie as an excuse. I hope so.

But the movie? It looks like a trip.
