Disney's animation Meet the Robinsons is a science-fiction adventure comedy-drama. It follows the exploits of tween inventor and orphan Lewis, who builds a memory scanner and meets a time-traveling kid named Wilbur from the future, sent to the past to stop the nefarious antics of the Bowler Hat Guy and his robot sidekick.
Through the action-packed adventure to restore time to its proper state with plenty of twists along the way, Lewis comes to realize the importance of not living with regrets of what could have been, and instead focussing on a better tomorrow. Here are 10 hidden details in the movie relating to the main characters. At one point, Lewis asks Wilbur what his dad looks like. This prompts Wilbur to say that his father Cornelius looks like Tom Selleck. When we finally get to see Cornelius, he looks nothing like the famous actor.
The scene was actually written first, and it prompted the production to contact Selleck to play the role of Cornelius, which he was happy to do. Uncle Art is a pizza delivery man who can be seen at different points in the background of the movie using his ship to make intergalactic deliveries.
Art has a striking appearance, with his buff build, bouffant hairstyle, and a commanding jawline. So impressive is his appearance that Lewis initially mistakes Art for a real superhero, before discovering his actual job. This was a deliberate plot point once again prompted by the actor voicing the character. Adam West, best known as the lead of the 60's Batman and Robin series, voices the character of Art, and the personality and appearance of Art is a tribute to West's caped crusader role in his youth.
The orphanage that Lewis lives in is a big part of the background for his character. It is what makes him yearn for a better place, and a family to call his own. It is also the place that bred Lewis's main nemesis, in the form of his roommate Goob. The orphanage has a few other famous faces that viewers would have to pay close attention to detect. On the walls of the orphanage, you can see photos of Walt Disney and Nikola Tesla.
Both these real-life people serve as inspirations for Lewis, being creators and entrepreneurs who changed the world through their inventions.
Lewis later follows in their footsteps to become a world-famous inventor. Near the end of the movie, we see Lewis going back to his lab to continue work on his inventions that would in the future make him one of the most successful men in the world.
One of the inventions that we see in the background is a pair of anti-gravity boots. While these boots are just a part of the general scene, in a deleted scene Lewis was to use the boots to battle the robot called Dolores.
We never got to see the boots in action in the movie. Moviemaking is a complicated process, especially while storyboarding an animation. Lots of bits and pieces need to be considered while plotting the narrative. In one scene in the film, we see Lewis taking the wheel off his time machine.
This is what causes the machine to crash land and is a crucial part of the plot which raises the stakes for the audience. But then a few scenes later we see that the wheel is back on the time machine with no explanation as to how that happened. One thing common to the majority of Disney animations is a sneaky appearance by Mickey Mouse even when the character has nothing to do with the story.
In Meet the Robinsons , Mickey shows up in two places. The watch that Gaston is holding in the scene above is shaped to resemble Mickey's head and distinctive shape of ears.
Also, the garden that we see in the future with the hedges shaped like giant teacups has circles cut into the grass to resemble Mickey's round head and smaller round ears. Even the giant teacups might be a reference to Mrs. Potts from Beauty and the Beast. The movie literally acts as an advertisement for other Disney movies.
The other poster features the character of Jesse from Toy Story who was a part of the toyline from which Woody was created. The theme park known as Todayland is a nod to another Disney property known as Tomorrowland. We can also see a shape in the park that closely resembles the Space Mountain attraction at the real-life Disneyland. Finally, Lewis time travels thirty years into the future to meet his future self and his future family.
A similar time jump took place in Tomorrowland , which was set in , to explore what the future would look like in At one point, after Wilbur reveals to Lewis that he is a time traveler, the latter mockingly calls Wilbur 'Captain Time Travel'.
The character of Captain Time Travel is apparently a real person in Lewis's time since he carries a lunchbox with the character's likeness emblazoned across it. Interestingly, Captain Time Travel bears a striking resemblance to a grown-up Wilbur with a muscular physique. Does that mean an older version of Wilbur will someday become Captain Time Travel? However, the film uses the character from the book to tell a completely different story based on time travel, which finds no mention in the original book.

Bowler Hat Guy
We wanted something that immediately meant that you saw that character and you KNEW it was the villain. As far as the voice goes, early on when we storyboard the movie, we do temp voices as place holders, before we cast the actors. Some of the other crew members do character voices in the movie. It is really exciting to be one of the first computer movies coming out of Disney. We feel like we are a new studio, like we have just started; we just built ourselves from the ground floor and we are starting now. It is an exciting time at the studio now and it is great to be part of that, having directed this movie, and to feel the energy and the sense of re-invention. We are starting to redefine what Disney Animation is and our new techniques and different kind of stories. It is great to have a time travel story — we have never done that before. He came in about a year ago and John and his Pixar directors took a look at the movie and really responded to the story and the characters and the look of the movie and what we were doing.
Meet the Robinsons: Me, Myself, and the Bowler Hat Guy
Set in and , Meet the Robinsons tells the story of Lewis Jordan Fry - a brilliant and creative twelve-year-old orphan with a surprising number of clever inventions to his credit. However, most of Lewis' inventions don't work yet, and they get in the way of his adoption efforts because of narrow minded would-be adopters who prefer someone less creative. His latest and most ambitious project is the Memory Scanner, which lets people see their memories. The machine is supposed to help him find his birth mother so they can become a family.
Its seamless computer-generated imagery and live action stereo photography effectively defined the importance of 3-D to the future of cinema, as well as all other currently evolving digital displays. Though stereoscopic cinema began in the early nineteenth century and exploded in the s in Hollywood, its present status as an enduring genre was confirmed by Avatar's success. Ray Zone takes a comprehensive approach that not only examines the technology of the films, but also investigates the business, culture, and art of their production.
