Yesterday it was reported that Hugh Laurie was in talks to play an antagonist in Brad Bird‘s Tomorrowland. The film has many sci-fi aspects to it, and the contents of the 1952 box that was seen earlier this year supports that theory. But Disney historian Jim Hill further theorized that the film could be about Walt Disney’s plan to reveal to the entire world that UFOs were real.
Again the contents of the box had an Amazing Stories magazine featuring a man flying around with a jetpack, plenty of photos of Disney himself, and some boxes of archival video – contents of which are currently known. So there are plenty of clues that almost confirm that this Bird-directed film is indeed about Disney and UFOs, but Hill found more facts that further support his theory that Tomorrowland is indeed about Disney, UFOS, and Project Blue Book. So is it? Are we wrong? Well some new video seems to support Hill’s claims Hit the jump to find out more. [Read more...]

But it has been rumored that the film is about a man who makes contact with alien-life.
So while we can keep guessing what the film is about, Lindelof and Bird have begun opening the so-called mystery box. The contents of the box were apparently the inspiration behind the movie when Lindelof was spending some time in Walt Disney’s personal development lab. Check out what the two tweeted out below.
