Brad Bird, who helmed ‘Ratatouille’ and the fourth ‘Mission Impossible’ film, takes on directing duties, having also co-written the screenplay with ‘Lost’ creator Damon Lindelof.

This wouldn’t be the first time Disneyland attractions have inspired the company’s films, with the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise stemming from the popular ride found at Disney theme parks around the world.
Film director Guillermo del Toro is also working on an adaptation of ‘The Haunted Mansion’, another of the most popular attractions that can be found at most Disney theme parks in some variation or another.
Disney are currently working on several live action remakes of their classic films, such as ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘Dumbo’, but are planning to return to the animated films that they’re best known for with the impending sequel to the smash hit, ‘Frozen’.
Watch the new trailer for ‘Tomorrowland’, currently slated to hit cinemas on 22 May, above.
