Tomorrowland: This one's for the dreamers

I saw this film as a going away gift from my friends in South Korea. 
It was the perfect story to encounter before I start a new chapter. 

Tomorrowland is one of my favorite areas of Disneyland. Space Mountain is my favorite ride, and the entire premise of the "great big beautiful tomorrow" is very inspirational. 
The main characters are well rounded and easy to relate to. The action was a bit too much at times ( a lot of trippy camera effects) but it was an exciting ride. The Walt Disney World and Star Wars cameos, along with other SciFi flicks were an added bonus to the nostalgic and futuristic atmosphere of Tommorowland itself.  
It would be difficult to describe the story of this film without giving spoilers, so instead, I will share my favorite quote (and an old Cherokee saying). 
"There are two wolves who are always fighting. One is darkness and despair. The other is light and hope. Which wolf wins? The one you feed." 
This quote, this message, is the core of the film Tomorrowland. And it is beautiful. The power of positive thinking can do amazing things. Positivity creates confidence, and confidence creates motivation. 
This is the life of an artist, engineer, writer and just about anyone who has dreams. 
I would say that this is the most inspirational Disney film that I've seen in a long time. And it's perfect for the new generations, going out into the world, whether from High School or College. 
With that said, Tomorrowland goes deep into a dark theme than you would expect in a Disney film, but there is a reason for it, and once the story comes together by the end of the film, it all makes sense. 
The film Tomorrowland asks a question of its audience, and it is up to us to provide the answer. There are so many ways to contribute and create an amazing future, as long as we believe that it is possible.
 This going to sound cheesy but: if you have given up on anything, watch this movie. If you've encountered failure recently, watch this movie. It is a creative and bold kick in the pants. I ate it up like a chocolate eclaire.
