File this under "a mile of suspicion," "likely PR stunt," and "guess work by one Tesla superfan."
Recently, webcomic creator, noted litigator, and noted Tesla-ologist The Oatmeal (AKA Matthew Inman) was invited by Disney to their Burbank studio to consult on their upcoming film "Tomorrowland." The Brad Bird-directed film--which was teased during Disney's D23 event--involves a lost city of misfit scientists including Nicola Tesla and Thomas Edison. Think "BioShock" for kids.
Anyway, during his visit, which Inman details on his blog, it seems he saw enough to become at least partially convinced that Disney was using him as shore up ideas for a Tesla film.
