The Making of Me was a 1989 film about conception and birth directed by Glenn Gordon Caron and starring Martin Short. It was shown at the Wonders of Life pavilion at Epcot when it was open. During the Wonders of Life's time as a Festival Center, the theater was repurposed for festival programming. From 2008 to 2019, Martin Short starred in an unrelated short film called O Canada! in the Canada Pavilion.

Description

Martin Short told the story about how we were born, by explaining how his parents met during the course of their lives - at a high school dance, getting married, going on their honeymoon, and having their first child (him).

The film also explained the process of fertilization between sperm and eggs in an animated form, as well as the development of the fetus by using imagery of fetal development taken by Lennart Nielsen.

Issues

According to producers, the film was "...somewhat a departure for a Disney attraction". Given that birth and conception is a sensitive issue around families, an advisory sign was placed near the entrance to the theater, in order to advise parents to decide whether the film is suitable for them.

Trivia

  • According to early promotional materials, the film was originally to be titled "It's Our Baby".[1]
