It stars George Clooney, Hugh Laurie will play the villain, and it was formerly known as "1952," but that's about all we've really known up until now about director Brad Bird ("The Incredibles") and Damon Lindelof's ("Prometheus") secret live-action project for Walt Disney Studios, "Tomorrowland." Oh sure, we've known that the movie would reportedly be a "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"-esque story, inspired by material from the archives of WED Enterprises, Walt Disney's personal development lab, and there was educated speculation that posited the movie was about Walt Disney's involvement with an Army project to let the world know that UFOs really exist. But because it was a Damon Lindelof project, he of the J.J. Abrams school of keeping info close to the vest, no one would verify the veracity of such claims.

While we're probably not going to know what exactly writer Damon Lindelof and director Brad Bird have cooking up with the mysterious "Tomorrowland" until they're good and ready to lift the curtain, there are already some pretty elaborate theories floating out there.

Few films have been as intensely speculated upon (and heavily guarded) as Disney's forthcoming "Tomorrowland." Originally announced in June 2011, the film, based on an idea by "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof and Entertainment Weekly writer Jeff Jensen, picked up steam last year when it secured "Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol" director Brad Bird (who would heavily re-write the script with Lindelof) and, for the lead role, some dude named George Clooney. Still, no one knows what it's about, and for a long time it carried an even-more-cryptic working title of "1952." Well, Disney historian Jim Hill thinks that he cracked the case wide open. Read on, but beware – potentially huge spoilers lurk below, that is, if they turn out to be true.
