Brad Bird Casts His Fighting Girl Robot For Tomorrowland

Raffey-Cassidy

When we found out that one of the lead characters in Brad Bird‘s Disney movie Tomorrowland – and I mean ‘Disney movie’ at least in part because it’s set in one of the parks – is going to be a young girl robot, my mind didn’t jump to martial arts. But perhaps it should have.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the robogirl character “knows several fighting styles.”

They also tell us that Raffey Cassidey has won the part. She was the younger Snow White in the Huntsman movie. Looking at her and thinking of her breaking out into martial arts gives me a bit of a River Tam feeling.

Tomorrowland is expected to be huge, hugely ambitious, but family-friendly. Cassidey will be starring alongside George Clooney, whose character knew her when he was ‘her age’, and Hugh Laurie, who is rumoured to be getting quite an unusual look as the film’s villain.

The film is set for release in December of next year.
