I’ve been waiting several months for the release of Disney’s Tomorrowland. How could you go wrong with a movie named after one of my favorite places in Disneyland and George Clooney? 🙂 I attended a media screening earlier this week and really enjoyed it. It’s a fun story and after having seen it, I wish I had brought Quinn along too. No worries though, I just get to see it again in theaters when I take Quinn. 🙂
From Disney comes two-time Oscar® winner Brad Bird’s riveting, mystery adventure “Tomorrowland,” starring Academy Award® winner George Clooney. Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank (Clooney), jaded by disillusionment, and Casey (Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity, embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as “Tomorrowland.” What they must do there changes the world—and them—forever.
Why Kids Will Enjoy Tomorrowland
Yup! I think Quinn would love seeing all the fun inventions and futuristic gizmos. There’s some silly humor too that I know he’d appreciate. Plus there is a fun scene with the ride “It’s a Small World” at the 1964 World Fair. I bet kids will insist on riding it again at Disneyland after they see this movie.
Is Tomorrowland Scary?
My only concern for little kids watching Tomorrowland is the bad robots that chase the main characters. The robots themselves are sort of silly looking humans (the theater erupted in giggles when we first saw them). Don’t worry these robots aren’t in anyway similar to those in Terminator or Avengers: Age of Ultron. Every kid is different and every family has their own levels of acceptability. If you have any concerns, I recommend checking out the clip below. It shows a little of the mean robot action and would help you make your own decision.
I don’t even think the robots would scare my 5 year old, Elliot but I am not sure if the live action would hold his attention. He’s sort of a cartoon guy. 🙂 I wouldn’t take him to see it in the theater but will rent it for him to watch at home.
Overall the movie has a great message about curiosity, creativity and staying positive. I think most kids (and adults) would appreciate the theme and fun action throughout the film.
