The aliens were friendly and flew. In the end, they were saying goodbye, like at a hospital maybe. They were light creatures; the graphics were bad, they looked hand-drawn, kind of. It’s not Cocoon (1985), but kinda has the same vibe. This has been stuck in my head for years and I cannot find it. Help please!

    Hi. Did you actually watch this in the '80s or more recently? If more recently, then when? Also, did the film feature any alien technology such as a spaceship? And do you recall any locations that were shown in the film, aside from the hospital you mentioned? Sep 22, 2023 at 3:40

    Also, you said that it's not Cocoon (1985), but have you ruled out the sequel, Cocoon: The Return (1988)? Sep 22, 2023 at 3:50

    The other film around the same time that had the similar "aliens help old folk" theme was Batteries Not Included. Sep 22, 2023 at 6:59
  • Any chance that you are remembering James cameron's movie "The Abyss", from 1989? The glowing underwater aliens in this movie seemed to fly on stingray-like wings. Sep 22, 2023 at 14:11
