Ep46: Would you keep it to yourself?

May 6, 2015 | Podcast episode

In this episode: In this episode we talk about whether the "fight of the century" affected the already record breaking numbers for the release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Mario has some big news about the 24-hour day. We also talk about how big we think Tomorrowland will be and Heyzen gives his thoughts on why he's really looking forward to this movie release.

We’re not exactly sure what ‘Plus Ultra‘ will translate to when the movies is released but in the real world, ‘Plus Ultra‘ is Latin for “further beyond”. This movie release has been so exciting for a lot of people especially since “The Optimist” game that started several years ago at the 2013 D23 is apparently still going on in the form of the “Stop Plus Ultra” movement. Check out the video that you heard in this episode:

You can click here if you want to visit the ‘Stop Plus Ultra’ YouTube channel.

On the flip side, the Plus Ultra Society has their own website (plusultrasociety.com). When there, you are greeted by an image of ‘It’s A Small World’, some morse code and the Plus Ultra logo. The Morse code translates to coordinates (40.745338, -73.837613). If you loom that up in Google Maps, it is the exact location of where the ‘It’s A Small World’ attraction was setup at the 1964 World’s Fair.

Double-clicking on the +U icon at the bottom will reveal a “password” entry box. If you enter WED4221964 you log in as “Walt Disney” and you get to see many of the same images that we got to see at the D23 Expo a couple of years ago.

By the way, the Tomorrowland app that Heyzen talks about in this episode from D23 is still available in the iTunes App store (sorry, Android users). It is described as:

Tomorrowland D23 © 2013 Disney

By Applico LLC

Explore the mystery of The “1952” Collection that inspired the new movie from the director of The Incredibles and the creator/writer of Lost which takes as its title the word that encapsulates Walt Disney’s stirring brand of futurism: TOMORROWLAND. The “1952” Collection contains materials that speak to almost every aspect of Disney’s futurism. However, as you shall read and hear, the collection is, at best, an unreliable narrator to its own significance. Among the many questions begged by the “1952” collection: Is this just a bunch of random stuff thrown together? Or do these items share a common, meaningful purpose, perhaps elements of some heretofore unknown Disney endeavor? Download the app to explore the “1952” exhibition revealed at Disney’s D23 Conference including images and artifacts from the Disney archives

    I am seriously fascinated by the plus ultra thing and Walt’s futuristic ambitions. I love hidden things and puzzles, I’m a sucker for mysteries. Sir Doyle is my favourite Author. So this is right up my alley. I got the app and am finding myself getting sucked into it all. I’d love to hear more about it. If it’s not too painful for some to hear! I realise it’s a bit creepy! Lol

      Very glad you enjoyed the episode, Kerlia! Sir Doyle is amazing! I will say that my personal love of mystery started when I was around 6 or 7 years old and I heard my first ‘Encyclopedia Brown’ story. I was hooked! I can understand getting sucked in, too! If you haven’t already, make sure you search for the information behind ‘The Optimist’ from the last D23 Expo. In a very similar fashion, social media was used to guide you through clues and a story line make you a part of the story. Who knows? Maybe one day we’ll do our own version of this. 😉
