The Further Adventures of Walt’s Frozen Head is a feature comedy about the afterlife of the world famous animator and media mogul.

Playing off the urban legend that Walt Disney had himself cryogenically preserved, a new feature film is being produced and shot in the Orlando area. The movie was made without the knowledge or permission of the Walt Disney Company or family.

The Further Adventures of Walt’s Frozen Head is a quirky comedy about the unlikely friendship between the frozen head of Walt and Peter, a low level theme park employee. During his yearly dethaw to oversee the direction of his company and guard his creative legacy, Walt demands to be finally allowed up to see his park, Walt Disney World. When management scoffs, he recruits Peter to kidnap him for a day in the Magic Kingdom.

Significant portions of the film were shot on Walt Disney World property without the knowledge of the Disney company. While this film is not the first to do so, it is the first feature film about the urban legend of Walt Disney’s cryogenic preservation.

Social media for the film began almost a year ago, with the creation of the Twitter parody account @waltsfrzenhead. The account tweets humorous commentary on the parks, films, and general news from the perspective of the cryogenically preserved head of Walt.

The film was cast and shot under the code name The Florida Project, the same code name originally used for what would become the Walt Disney World resort. While all the filming at Walt Disney World has been completed, several more scenes are yet to be shot in other locations around the Orlando area.

The Further Adventures of Walt’s Frozen Head is currently raising post production funds on Kickstarter.
