Learn Plus Ultra's origins in two animated backstory videos for Disney's Tomorrowland

Disney has had a tricky time introducing all the various story elements of its upcoming fantasy adventure flick,Tomorrowland, directed by Brad Bird.   Some teasers and trailers focus on the themes of family and personal destiny, while others highlight a clandestine project by a dream team of super-geniuses to create a utopian metropolis, all linked back to the cover of a retro Disneyland.  

So far, none have completely meshed all the plot points together to provide a coherent tapestry of exactly what this film's true objectives and intentions are.   To further illuminate Tomorrowland's grand secrecies, here are two animated videos that act as an orientation tool or instructional primer to the altruistic Plus Ultra program and the birth of the film's sparkling urban centerpiece.

Take a look and tell us if this fills you in on the fantastic fancies of Walt Disney and his celebrated city of the future. Bonus points if you can place the voice of the narrator.

Starring George Clooney, Britt Robertson and Hugh Laurie, Tomorrowland shines on May 22, 2015.
