A young girl gets out of jail and is given back her paltry few belongings. A baseball cap, some gum, and a pin. The pin? Isn’t hers.

“What if there was a place, a secret place,” says the voiceover in this new teaser trailer for Disney’s Tomorrowland, “where nothing was impossible. A miraculous place, where you could actually change the world.”

As she touches the pin, the world around her changes. She freaks out.

Says the man in the voiceover, “You wanna go?”

If this would have happened to me when I was a young kid, enthralled with the idea of sci-fi-themed Tomorrowland as the best place to go when visiting Walt Disney’s happiest place on earth, I would have grabbed the pin in a heartbeat. Check out the trailer below.

Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Up) and Damon Lindelof (Lost, Star Trek) join forces to write Tomorrowland, a mystery adventure that teams up George Clooney as a washed-up boy-genius and Britt Robertson as a bright young troubled teenager in a mission to find and understand a mysterious place hidden somewhere in time and space.

The film has a great supporting cast, including Hugh Laurie as brilliant scientist David Nix, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key and Thomas Robinson. Tomorrowland will be directed by Bird and produced by Lindelof, Bird, and Jeffrey Chernov.

The movie is set to release on May 22 of next year.
