“We’ve had a lot of discussions, and at the end of the day we decided that this is a film for the fans, and we wanted to make it as easy for them to watch it as possible,” said director Benjamin Lancaster.

The comedy film details the afterlife of Walt Disney, playing off the urban legend that he had himself cryogenically preserved. Produced and shot in the Orlando area, this film was made without the knowledge or permission of the Walt Disney Company and family. Many portions of the film were even shot guerrilla-style on Walt Disney World property.

“Traditional distributors we talked to were worried about the film’s content,” said Lancaster. “They didn’t want to take the risk.”

The film stars Ron Schneider as Walt and Daniel Cooksley as Peter, the Cast Member who kidnaps the frozen head for a day in Magic Kingdom. Schneider is well-known for his history of performing and writing for theme parks across the country, including Disneyland, Magic Kingdom, Universal Orlando Resort, and EPCOT Center – where he originated the role of the walk-around character Dreamfinder for the Journey into Imagination pavilion.

“I’ve been a passionate fan of Walt Disney since the 1950s; I never could have imagined I could have been a part of anything like this,” said Schneider. “It’s a wild story told with respect, humor and a lot of love.”
