Jackson and Robin Williams, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and John Lasseter, the chief creative officer at Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios. Film and television shows featured in the special include “The Abyss,” “Avatar,” “Forrest Gump,” “Jumanji,” “Jurassic Park,” “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “Robot Chicken,” “Star Trek (2009),” “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan,” “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” “Transformers,” “Twister,” “Young Sherlock Holmes” and “The War of the Worlds (2005),” which starred narrator Cruise.
