Project Website:

The Eagle Obsession follows writer/director Jeffrey Morris as he embarks on a journey to explore how a beloved fictional spacecraft from the British sci-fi series Space: 1999 inspired a sense of hope, rekindled dreams of a bright future, and continues to influence our vision of what lies ahead in an ever-changing world.

Morris takes viewers back to the unforgettable trailblazing era when people walked on Moon—both in real life and in science fiction—while also providing a glimpse into our exciting future in space.

To date, the production has filmed engaging interviews with high profile cast members in the United States, Canada, England, and Denmark, such as Space: 1999 stars Nick Tate and Barbara Bain, Apollo 16 Lunar Module Pilot Charles Duke, and Visual Effects Artist Brian Johnson. The project is set to include even more distinguished figures, including the renowned Star Trek actor William Shatner. In addition to recreating spectacular visual effects shots of the Eagle and key locations from Space: 1999, the producers have financed and supervised a 100%-accurate reconstruction of the legendary Eagle Cockpit at Pinewood Studios in London.
