While Disney’s Tomorrowland doesn’t premiere in theaters until May 22nd, you don’t have to wait until next month to teleport yourself to the imagined future reality. This week, Disney revealed its new website for the movie, which allows you to explore Tomorrowland as it will appear in the movie. Not just that, but you can actually easily insert a picture of yourself (or your kids) into some of Tomorrowland‘s backdrops.

The website was created in partnership with ecommerce startup Bonanza,whose online platform allows anyone to become entrepreneurs through the easy set-up of online businesses. Utilizing the company’s Background Burner technology, which automatically and easily detects and differentiates between foregrounds and backgrounds in any uploaded picture, visitors to the Tomorrowland website simply upload their desired photo. From there, Bonanza’s Background Burner crops your image and inserts you into one of several available Tomorrowland scenes on the website.

In essence, Bonanza’s Background Burner is a an easy and cheap alternative to Photoshop, which is really one of the few programs out there that can perform this kind of accurate cropping of objects from photos. Because of Bonanza’s focus on providing resources for online entrepreneurs, they also offer a professional edition of Background Burner, which is used by more than 5,000 online merchants daily to help them drive sales to their online businesses.
