Then, in a déjà vu nightmare, a ruthless corporate raider launches a takeover attempt of The Disney Company, planning to sell off the assets to the highest bidders. And this time there are no white knights in Disney's corner.

But The Circle is still there, the group of confidants who helped Walt escape death in 1966 and who have been guarding him and his secret ever since. Even though they're all old men now, they're not about to let Walt's company be torn apart without a fight. And they know just who can lead them. However, as they scurry to wake him, The Circle discovers there are powerful forces that want the dead to stay dead. But they don't know Walt Disney!
