In March of 1995, the UPN aired a most intriguing Disney-produced television special about UFOs, entitled ‘Alien Encounters from New Tomorrowland.’ This highly unusual broadcast presents UFOs and alien visitation to our planet as a matter of fact. Though the film’s existence is acknowledged by the respected website of the Internet Movie Database, you will not find it available anywhere for purchase.
Those who tracked this incredible production state that it was shown only once, and with no advance notice on stations in only five US cities. Thanks to a viewer who was able to roll the VCR and capture it, we have a record of the startling statements it contained.
At first glance, this unique Disney television special appears to be an elaborate promotion of a scary New Tomorrowland ride on alien encounters which was about to open at Disney World. But on closer inspection, it is much more. The entire program, which opens with a short segment by Disney CEO Michael Eisner, does not even question the existence of UFOs and a major UFO cover-up. In fact, at times it has a tone of ridicule towards those who still deny the existence of UFOs.
Considering the very limited showing and audience, and the highly unusual stance on UFOs taken, many suspect that this program was a probe to measure public reaction to news of the reality of visitation and interaction with various forms of non-human intelligent life on Earth.
This rare Disney UFO documentary was only broadcast once in five US states, then it was shelved and never broadcast again. This version is the complete uncut feature, recorded to VHS video when it was first broadcast on UPN.
