Disney+ is filled with a ton of great documentaries about the secrets behind the magic of Disney World and Disneyland, but the most interesting Disney documentary of the summer is hiding out on YouTube on the Defunctland channel.
If you’ve never checked it out, Defunctland is a great channel filled with in-depth looks at theme parks, rides, and other attractions that have died out and fallen down the memory hole. It is especially a great channel if you are a fan of history about the Disney theme parks. That brings us to their latest release, “Live From The Space Stage.”
The nearly 90-minute documentary dives deep into the history of a Sci-Fi Rock Band that was created at Disneyland in the summer of 1981, by the name of Halyx. The band was equal parts Kiss and Star Wars, complete with a dancing frog and a 7′ wookiee on bass. They played the Space Mountain Stage and developed a cult following that sticks around to this day, even though the band only really existed for one summer.
If you’re looking for something new to watch, or just need a good distraction, you will not regret this. It’s actually more interesting than a lot of the documentaries on Disney+.

With a bass-playing Wookie and an acrobatic frog, the band’s existence is nearly unbelievable, and the story behind its creation is just as incredible. This is Defunctland’s first feature film, Live From the Space Stage: A HALYX Story. Please enjoy.
