Did You Know?
The first version that was inspired by Steven Spielberg
's original idea was vastly different than the final result. It would have been situated in the future and feature a distant planet with ruins of four major cities, but no sophisticated aliens inhabiting them. The main characters were humans inspecting the planet. They would gradually find out that one of the cities waged war on the peaceful other three, making the planet so toxic that all survivors of each civilization were forced to go into stasis, to be revived when the planet became habitable again. The main characters would eventually revive all civilizations, and establish peace on the planet by converting the war-mongering tribe to a peaceful way of life. See more
