Disney has given the world its first look at their new animated feature Meet the Robinsons. The picture above shows the animated cast of the film, based on William Joyce's beloved 1990 book A Day with Wilbur Robinson. In the tale, Wilbur is a boy genius who creates a fantastic Jack Kirby-esque machine which ends up unlocking time, allowing Wilbur to visit with a future whose survival depends on him.

Apparently this book was a big hit, although I've never heard of it myself so I can't offer any insights. I will say that I tend to enjoy Disney's computer animated features, and so I will no doubt watch this one when it hits. If anyone out there has read the book and has some opinions/thoughts they'd like to offer, I'd appreciate it.
