Welcome to Circlevision and The Timekeeper. This super unique format was used throughout Disney properties and this episode we dive into one of the last productions, The Timekeeper. Our entire crew has a great recollection of this film and animatronic show, starring Robin Williams. The show itself, featured a unique character based on the actual camera system and they called her, Nine Eyes.
With this episode, we go scene by scene, discussing the stars, filming, production and more. The original film entitled From Time to Time, but was named The Timekeeper in Florida. We go into the location, which always felt a little off and out of place in Tomorrowland. The redo in 1994 is discussed and we hit on some of the backstory involved with this attraction, including a bit of Alien Encounter.
We discuss a few other things, including the old WDW travel VHS tapes, which had some great panning shots over the years. The group also gets into the preshows and we get a little bit of history and current location talk on the Renault concept car made for the attraction, The Reinastella. This ride is somewhat unique, as you had to look forward at The Timekeeper, so it kept the audience attention, looking one way. This is a great, 'New' Tomorrowland attraction that has met our criteria and we hope you really enjoy our look back. What is your favorite memory of The Timekeeper? Was this a must-do for you and your family? We would love to hear your memories as well.
