He’s back to change the world! Walk into Epcot’s Magic Eye theatre for the full 2010 preshow in source quality.
Then take your seat in the main theatre for the full mainshow, recorded several years ago in Disneyland without a recording ban. For best possible quality and to capture the magic for posterity, this was shot:
With a polarizing lens for 2D
And then was colour corrected and processed with several filters to reveal as much detail as possible and to eliminate almost all visible flicker.
With stereo source audio.
Now the US versions of the original attraction have closed, here is an edit that was six months in the making.
Start way back with the history of attempting to use a motion base as an attraction, then see the developing relationship between George Lucas and Michael Eisner. Follow the ride planning, with a full concept and construction section for both parks. See the Disneyland opening, and changes added over the years. Next see the original Disney-MGM exteriors and also changes made over the years. This is followed by a full tour of the Disney’s Hollywood Studios exterior as it was before closing and a look at the differences to the preshow and boarding area layout. The take a full look at the Disneyland queue and preshow areas, again just before closing, shot by Chris Bales.
Next is the full multi camera, mostly tripod shot preshow in both the lower and upper rooms. All droids, Starspeeder effects, video wall, details, everything – both the R2D2/C3P0 and GT-4T and GT-9T preshows are shown in full from multiple angles, with source audio. Wander through the line taking in the details, arrive at load and watch the overhead monitor as your flight to the moon of Endor is prepared, followed by the safety video – again tripod shot with source audio. Next walk into your speeder for a split screen full ride using source ride film and incabin coverage of REX, the side video screen and the in-cabin effects. This is set to a new stereo source mix of the ride audio, remixed to bring the score forward more and with added incabin audio effects to sound just like the attraction did.
Finally, exit the Disneyland ride and walk into the store, then exit the Orlando version and walk into the store too. Finally, take a look at both closed attractions as the adventure gets ready to continue.
65 minutes long. Enjoy!

Shot in both Epcot and Disneyland, here is a full multi camera record of the 1994 3D attraction.
Take a full HD daytime tour of the Epcot Imagination fountain garden, then walk into the Imagination Institutes Magic Eye Theatre. First watch a handheld video of the whole True Colors preshow with source audio. Then watch a full handheld video of the original Californian preshow with Dr. Channing being interviewed for WNN-TV. Finally, see the whole recent preshow video tripod shot in HD including the full slogan video, the full What Will You Imagine preshow and the full introduction safety video with a clean ALD/induction audio mix. Finally, walk into the main theatre for a tripod shot main show with a new stereo source quality audio mix, and both main and side screens tripod shot with the main screen having flicker removal and polarised 2D filters. To finish, walk out for a look at Epcots fountain garden at night. Main show shot in Disneyland in 2009 with permission.
50 minutes long. Enjoy!
Starting with the conception at the New Yorks World Fair of 1964 to their construction and opening in Disneyland. Take a multi angle ride on the Peoplemover with a look at additions over the years, then the reahb to The Rocket Rods with full multi angle ride, and what happened to them. Full source audio.

droid room spiels (all multi angle), full safety video (all with source audio), load, and then the attraction – multi angle high quality video and complete multitracked source ride audio. Walk out too in Florida (Endor Vendor) & Paris.
