Show Notes

Tenth in our 12-part series diving deep into the mysteries of Disney’s Tomorrowland movie. It’s Newton versus Nix: a heroic epiphany, and a villainous revelation. Will the words of an antagonist forever define a film’s aims? Is this infamous sequence a directorial self-insert, or the antithesis against which our heroes define themselves? It’s dueling monologues as these speakers battle for the soul of Tomorrowland.
