Six years before the world’s first manned space flight, Walt Disney released a television series that predicted their vision for the future. The 1955 program, “Man and the Moon,” stunned viewers with it’s innovative and beautiful vision of lunar space flight; even today, the rich graphical work of this series is absolutely astounding. We are pleased to bring you a remixed, modern-day version of this film, as well as two others from the same series, set to electronic beats.
Recently Disney has increased their online presence with an exclusive YouTube channel and Twitter account. Through these forms of media, Disney is reaching out to fans in a way that even the creators of “Man on the Moon” would have never thought possible.
