As a Disney movie shooting in Central Florida, "Tomorrowland" would be expected to use Disney World as a backdrop.
Here's the happy news for Disney fans: The George Clooney sci-fi movie will feature the Carousel of Progress attraction in the Magic Kingdom, sources tell the Sentinel.
Disney retrofitted the first scene of the ride to look as it originally did, sources say.
How appropriate: The carousel is in Tomorrowland and charts how technology improved life in the 20th century.
"Tomorrowland" will be released in December 2014 and could help renew interest in the carousel.
The movie has been shooting in Altamonte Springs and New Smyrna Beach, where Clooney and Tim McGraw were spotted. Or maybe not in Clooney's case.
WESH-Channel 2 shared a photo of Oscar-winner Clooney getting a pedicure, but the actor's publicist said the photo was a fake.
Filming will continue through next week at the Kennedy Space Center.
"Tomorrowland" has a closed set, and Disney is saying almost nothing about the production. Most of the film shot in Vancouver.
Disney has offered this film synopsis: "Bound by a shared destiny, a teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor embark on a mission to unearth the secrets of a place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory."
