Last month, Disney Press announced the upcoming release of Before Tomorrowland, an original novel which expands on the universe of the Tomorrowland film, including a 20-page prequel comic.
After some digital sleuthing, Tomorrowland Times discovered that the comic's artist Jonathan Case posted this seemingly innocuous preview of a page he was coloring:
|Tesla, Edison, and Eiffel.|
posted this draft of the full lineup of the Plus Ultra society members:
The Optimist ARG, the Plus Ultra society is populated by such historical figures as Nicola Tesla, Thomas Edison, H.G. Wells, Alexandre Eiffel, Mark Twain, Amelia Earhart, and Walt Disney.
|Amelia Earhart's plane.|
... they asked me a bunch of questions about Nikola Tesla. They asked what Tesla was doing in Colorado, and if he'd ever conducted experiments at Mineral King. They asked if Tesla belonged to an organization called "Plus Ultra", and if it was possible for him to have met Walt Disney.
How far the movie will delve into the back story of the society is still unclear, however these images confirm that its formation will be extensively explored in this prequel book.
Before Tomorrowland is now up for preorder and is set for release April 7, 2015.
