Are they on?

Yep. So, introduce yourself.

Okay. Hey, I'm Frank. How you doing?

Don't answer that. That's rhetorical.

Okay. Let's get you up to speed.

This is a story about the future.

And the future

can be scary.


Are you sure you wanna go with "scary"?

Yes, I wanna go with scary.

- Okay.

- Okay.

The future can be scary.

Unstable governments, overpopulation,

wars on every continent,

famine, water shortages,

environmental collapse...

And scientific breakthroughs,

wonder and beauty...

Could you please just stop interrupting?

I will. Just try to be

a little more upbeat.

- "Upbeat"?

- Yeah, tell them what you like...

I can't tell them anything

if you keep interrupting me.

You're right. Sorry.

As I was saying...

With every second

that ticks by, we get closer and closer...

I know. Tell them about when...

I can't tell them anything

until I tell them about this.

Then, can we please

just start somewhere else?

Fine. Where would you like me to start?

Well, you keep saying the future

wasn't always this way, right?

It wasn't.

When I was a kid, the future was...

- Different, right?

- Yeah.

Okay, cool. Then, start there.

All right. Well, when I was a kid,

the future was different.

Flushing Meadows Corona Park,

World's Fair.

Don't forget your valuables

and enjoy the future.

Watch your step, kiddo.

- Hello, sir.

- May I help you?

My name is John Francis Walker.

I'm here to win the $50.

Is that so?

I took it apart because of

the nitrogen compartment.

Seeing as how the bus ride

was kind of bumpy and you know nitro.

I could've used

a hydrogen peroxide-powered engine.

Bell Labs tested that

with their Rocket Belt

and I guess there were some issues

with maneuverability,

flight duration, and stuff.

It's a jet pack.


You made this yourself?

Athena, what are you doing here?

Did you or didn't you?

- What?

- Did you make this yourself?



I guess I got tired of waiting around

for someone else to do it for me.

Does it work?

Sure. Yeah.


Just doesn't really,

you know, technically...


But if it did, "You know,

"technically fly,"

what would its purpose be?

How would your jet pack

make the world a better place?

Can't it just be fun?

Mr. Walker, please tell me

you can do better than "fun."

Anything's possible.

I don't know what that means.

If I was walking down the street,

and I saw some kid with

a jet pack fly over me,

I'd believe anything's possible.

I'd be inspired.

Doesn't that make

the world a better place?

Well, I suppose it would.

If it worked.

Unfortunately, it does not.

And if it doesn't work,

it has no purpose at all.

- Thank you for your time, Mr. Walker.

- But I can make it work!

That's the spirit.

Until then, young man, have fun.

Absolutely not.

- I like him.

- Athena, no.

What makes you

think you're gonna make this thing fly?

I'm optimistic.

- You're wasting your time.

- I'm not!

- Damn contraption.

- It's not a contraption!

- It doesn't work.

- I can make it work.

No, you can't!

I'm not giving up.

Don't turn around. Be cool.

What did I just tell you?

- Sorry.

- Stop talking.

Look over there. Five o'clock.

You know, on a clock?

Where the five is.

That way.

I'm going with them.

You count to 20, then follow us.

Don't get spotted.

Who are you?

I'm the future, Frank Walker.

Nice. Do you like it?

Travel the globe

in Walt Disney's "it's a small world. "

A salute to UNICEF

and children everywhere.

Excuse me.

It's the happiest cruise

ever to set sail.

Sorry. Excuse me.

Sorry, folks, you're gonna have
