Tomorrowland isn’t just a Land in at a Disney Theme Park anymore! It’s also a 2015 science fiction film directed by Brad Bird. The plot involves a disillusioned genius inventor (played by George Clooney) and a teenage science enthusiast who travel to an intriguing alternate dimension known as “Tomorrowland,” where their actions directly affect their own world.
If you delve further into the plot, it gets very confusing, so let’s be content to look at this Funko POP! Young Frank Walker vinyl figure from Tomorrowland:
The film failed to rocket into Box Office glory and actually lost significant money in its initial release. I enjoyed it for the Disney nostalgia (especially the 1964-65 World’s Fair elements) and it has grown on me more as time has passed. Reviewing the film is recommended if you didn’t enjoy it the first time! Although I will say the film relies heavily on the viewer being a huge Disney nerd.
I bought this Funko because it reminded me of the Rocketeer, what with the brown flight togs and the jet pack. He now sits on my mantle next to several of my Rocketeer figures.
As I’ve said in regards to other Funko figures, some work better than others. This one: Nails it!
So I’m definitely not going to bother collecting any more characters in Funko from this film. One is enough. And when it’s this cool, one is more than enough!
FUN FACTS: Despite owning the trademark to the word “Tomorrowland” in the United States since 1970, Disney released the film in the United Kingdom as Tomorrowland: A World Beyond, and as Project T in several European markets, because a company named ID&T had previously trademarked the word in 2005 for their electronic musical festival. Oops! Someone at Disney Legal is in trouble.
