Wilbur travels from 2007 to the year 2037, a thirty year period. This could be a reference to Tomorrowland at Disneyland, which was originally the idea of what 1985 would look like from the perspective of 1955, when the park originally opened. There is also a reference to this on a sign that says "Todayland" when Wilbur first arrives to the future. On a similar note, another Disney film, Tomorrowland (2015) was released in 2015, 30 years after when Tomorrowland at Disneyland was suppose to be set. See more »

A heartwarming story with eye-popping 3D special effects. If you have the option of seeing this in 3D, you should opt for it. The story is strong, so you will enjoy it either way, but since 3D is a rare instance in this day & age, you should go that route. This movie has a stellar cast that may not be the big A-list names like the Dreamworks movies, but they are very talented and well cast in their roles. I prefer the subtlety of casting for quality versus stunt casting, and this movie delivered. You can tell that John Lasseter played an important role in this movie - "Cars" delivered the message that the journey is more important than the destination and "Meet the Robinsons" delivers a message about not living in the past...keep moving forward. John Lasseter should be commended for helping lift Disney features back to their glory days. I will be the first to admit that they are not there yet, but with his help and movies that focus on the story & the characters like "Meet the Robinsons", we won't have long to wait...
