Dazzling Animation Cut Scenes From “Tomorrowland”

Dazzling Animation Cut Scenes From "Tomorrowland"

Disney has posted online a brief animation sequence that was created for inclusion in Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland. This sequence was in the earliest edits of the feature, inter-cut with live action actors responding to it. However, I was told, for timing sake the piece was cut out of the picture and is being used for promotional purposes. 

It was designed and animated by Teddy Newton, Dan Jeup and Andrew Jimenez; done in the manner of 1940s-50s Walt Disney educational films and in the spirit of Ward Kimball’s Tomorrowland TV segments (Man In Space, Mars and Beyond, etc).

Embed below (in two parts) is the footage – providing some background on the films mysterious genius club, "Plus Ultra":
