Walt Disney's Last Words

– by Tim Jousma

Walt Disney is a genius. Whether you like his movies or not is irrelevant. The work he did legitimizing animation as an art form has brought about many years of great movies and shorts from the likes of Disney, Warner Brothers, Hanna Barbera, and many others. He formed his own movie studio which has turned into a juggernaut, responsible for movies like Pulp Fiction from their Miramax Films brand, Toy Story from Pixar, Beauty and the Beast, and many others. He realized the importance of branding by opening his own theme parks, Disney Land and Disney World. So it begs to question why the last words Walt Disney ever wrote were "Kurt Russell".

The Huffington Post brought up Disney's last words due to Kurt Russell starring as Ego The Living Planet in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2. Kurt has been acting for years, starting his career working for Disney in films like Follow Me, Boys, Superdad, and The Strongest Man In The World. He had a contract with Disney for over a decade which saw Walt develop a grandfatherly relationship with the future Snake Plissken. Kurt had this to say about Walt Disney.

“We did have a personal relationship. We played Ping-Pong at lunch sometimes. He’d come down to set. We’d go watch movies that the studio was making, and he’d come down and ask if I wanted to go see them. He’d took me around and introduced me to all the different departments at Disney, and at one point gave me a bunch of original photo cells that they make the backdrop drawings of the characters and stuff like that,” said Russell."

Why would a genius like Walt Disney be thinking about a young Kurt Russell on his death bed? Could it be that he discovered Kurt Russell was a part of a scouting party of an ancient alien civilization intent upon taking over the planet Earth? Could it be that his last words were meant as a warning to the planet that we were in imminent danger? Could Walt Disney have been assassinated by aliens to keep the secrets of Kurt Russell's association with that alien planet quiet? Could the last film Walt Disney ever worked on, The Jungle Book, be a subliminal warning to Earth about Kurt Russell and the oncoming alien invaders? Or have I listened to too much Coast to Coast AM?
