The BBC documentary that you are going to see today is probably one of the best "making-of" ever done for a Disney theme park attraction - if not THE best. "Shoot for the Moon" was filmed in 1994-1995 during the building of the Disneyland Paris version of Space Mountain and Tim Delaney, show producer of the land appears in person, with many others WDI imagineers.
Those of you who already know it will be pleased to see it again, but, for those of you who have never seen it, i strongly recommand you to don't miss it, because it's reaaaally a perfect documentary! Of course the movie is about the FIRST story line of the attraction, the one inspired by Jules Verne "From the Earth to the Moon" which is now unfortunately extinct as it has been replaced by the "Mission 2". And, although the new version have some new interesting special effects, i'm sorry to say that the first version was better - and had a better on-board music, too.
Okay, here is the real thing, the fantastic "Shoot for the Moon" documentary, with all my thanks to Zn00p1 who uploaded them on Daily Motion!
In addition to this fantastic video, don't miss one of my previous article with many great renderings and making-of pictures of DLP Space Mountain. You'll find it HERE.
