Disney's New 'Tomorrowland' Trailer Shows A Future In Peril - WATCH

Let it never be said that Disney doesn’t know how to turn a ride, or in this case a land within its own theme parks, into what appears to be an epic film. The latest trailer for Tomorrowland gives us a better--though still cryptic--idea of just what Brad Bird has in store for his second live-action feature film.

The future, as luck would have it, seems to be in some sort of dire peril at the hands of a nefarious Hugh Laurie. Helpless to fend off the forces of evil himself, Amal Alamuddin’s husband enlists the help of a young girl whose imagination will probably save the day. Silly as it all may sound, the film’s visuals are absolutely gorgeous and just might convince you to give it a shot when it hits theaters in May.

Disney Is Bringing The World of 'Avatar' To Life - VIDEO

When “Avatar” first hit theaters back in 2009 the film was lauded for the technical innovation used to create a uniquely immersive experience. James Cameron brought Pandora, the home planet of the alien Na’Vi people, to life in a way that invited viewers to lose themselves in the vibrant world.

Though we’re still more than two years out from the first of three Avatar sequels, Disney’s team of Imagineers are hard at work building a real-life analogue to Pandora for Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park in Florida.

When plans for the Avatar theme-park were first announced, Cameron and his team described a multi-sensory journey that would transport people to the fictional planet that captured their imaginations. Everything from the sprawling landscapes to the lush, bioluminescent forests would be recreated to the T, offering park-goers the chance to experience the most fantastic aspect of the planet from a first-person perspective.

A new video from the park’s production team gives us our first look at what Cameron described, and from the looks of it there’s a good chance you’ll be going to Pandora long before you see the next Avatar film.

Meet Beachbot, Disney's Adorable Robot That Makes Massive Drawings In The Sand: VIDEO

BEACHBOT

This little guy could have his own Pixar film. 

Created in conjunction with ETH Zürich, Disney's "Beachbot" brings precision and artistry to the world of robotics. Tech Crunch reports:

The robot — aptly called “Beachbot” — works by dragging a set of pins through the sand, sort of like a rake. Each pin is individually raisable, allowing the bot to draw lines of varying thicknesses. More pins down = thicker lines drawn.

The artist behind the robot starts a canvas by setting down poles, which the robot uses as markers to finely calculate its position. At that point, the robot can be passed an image file to draw automatically, or the artists can steer it manually.

The Beachbot moves on a set of large, soft wheels that Disney has dubbed “balloon wheels”, allowing it to move across the sand without leaving tracks or screwing up whatever it’s drawn previously.

Check out Beachbot in action, AFTER THE JUMP...
