The Disney movie currently under development, “Tomorrowland,” has been surrounded by a few mysteries.
“Tomorrowland” was originally titled “1952” and the story was rumored to be related to an old storage box found at the Disney studios. The box was labeled “1952” and contained photos, books and other items related to Walt Disney’s activities.
There was speculation that the movie could be about long-standing claims by Disney insiders that high-ranking U.S. officials approached Walt Disney in the ‘50s to make a film about the realities of UFOs, intelligent visitors from elsewhere and related aspects of the situation.
Chase Brandon, a 35-year veteran of the CIA and the agency’s liaison to Hollywood and the publishing world, went public with a claim that he found a storage box at CIA headquarters. Brandon stated that the contents of the box convinced him the Roswell case really did involve a crashed extraterrestrial spacecraft.
(Note: 1952 is also the year of the creation of U.S. Army Special Forces, evolving out of the WWII Office of Strategic Services.)
