On one evening in March of 1995, without warning, Disney aired a family special. it turned out to be a documentary so controversial that it was pulled from the airwaves and banned from ever being shown again. This is the thrilling story of Alien Encounters from New Tomorrowland! The Banned Disney Documentary on UFOs and Alien Abductions!
Blurb from the YouTube Channel, Secret Screening.
RATING: 5 Charley’s.
This may have been the case of the “Disney Imagineers” of doing their jobs too well. I can hear the creative brief now. “Tear it from today’s headlines! Make it real! Make it scary! Make it really socko so we can blow the rubes otta’ their seats!”
Ultimately, the Imagineers inadvertently wound up recreating the famous 1938 Orson Wells radio play broadcast of the H.G.Wells novel, “War of the Worlds.” This show, although it was announced several times during the broadcast that it was fiction, lead to a country wide Martin invasion panic.*
But this time around, the Disney TV special insinuated that full disclosure by the government was coming soon and that Aliens from other planets are indeed real. Not only are they real, but they are going to abduct and subject you to extreme physical and psychological trauma. Especially the Reptilians and the Mantis people. Except for the nice Aliens that is. They’re the ones that will take you for rides to other planets.
Fostering this sensationalized thesis, was the filmmaker’s excellent interviews with the many luminaries from Ufology, Capt. Kevin Randall and Bob Hopkins to name a few. Then add the terrifying testimony of actual abductees and UFO photos and film footage to visually drive the message home. This all lead to the viewers being taken on a “jump-to-conclusion panic ride.” This was certainly not what the Imagineers would have imagined would happen.

This video was available several years ago, I know because I watched it. Unfortunately, it’s since been pulled out of circulation. No doubt by request of the copyright owner, an adorable mouse named Mickey and his army of Lawyers.
