Ahead of Sunday’s Super Bowl XLIX game, Walt Disney Studios has launched a new viral website for Tomorrowland (May 22, 2015).

In addition, the site features the slogan ‘The Future Awaits,’ as well as the ability to enter one’s email address for further updates.

While all the details we knew about the book were on the technical side (e.g. it will also include a 20-page full color comic insert), thanks to a recent update to Disney Publishing Worldwide’s upcoming catalog, we now have a hint at the plot of the prequel.
