Are you ready for Walt Disney World: The Movie?

09.30.2010

Disney has made a number of movies based on attractions at Disney World and Disney Land. There's been PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, THE COUNTRY BEARS and THE HAUNTED MANSION while JUNGLE CRUISE, TOMORROWLAND and 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA are in active development. But what happens when you run out of rides? Just turn the entire theme park into a movie!

Disney is developing MAGIC KINGDOM, a family adventure style movie that the studio hopes will do for their parks what NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM did for The Museum of Natural History and The Smithsonian. The studio is planning for KINGDOM to be like their version of THE AVENGERS, a movie that would star virtually all the major characters in the Disney universe. While no specifics were given, you can expect Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Snow White, Cinderella and probably even Captain Jack Sparrow.

Ronald Moore ("Battlestar Galactica") wrote a draft of the script but the studio is looking to develop it further with a new writer before moving forward. It's possible even that KINGDOM may be a few years off and, like THE AVENGERS, may need to reintroduce some characters through new films or short films.

While it's an intriguing premise, studios execs insist the film isn't a top priority right now and one that will simmer on the back-burner while they get more immediate ducks in a row. The thinking could be that the character reboots like MALEFICENT and CINDERELLA would lead directly into this project.

Extra Tidbit: if this movie doesn't include a scene where the Spaceship Earth/Epcot ball comes rolling off its structure, it's already in trouble.

I wanna see Captain Jack hope aboard Prince Eric's boat, call him and unic then take off with Ariel. Then steal Captain Hooks ship and some of Tinkerbell's pixi dust and fly his ass off to Agrabah for a threesome with Jasmine.

I have been reading a lot of Kingdom Hearts recommendations but even though Epic Mickey hasn't came out yet, that sounds like it would make an awesome movie.

I'm reminded of those "Boy Meets World" and "Full House" goes to Disney World episodes. Really can't imagine a 2-hour version of this.

I love Disney World. I have been there at least 20 times in my 25 years of existence. I don't think this is a good idea at all though. Making movies on separate attractions is fine even if they suck like Haunted Mansion (Which will hopefully be redeemed in Guillermo del Toro's version). This sounds like it would be something straight to video to me.

Already in print form

There is already a trilogy of books that explore this possibility, "Kingdom Keepers." Granted, a lot of the books deal with kids going backstage at the Magic Kingdom, which is something Disney would try to discourage at all costs. [link]

I liked Night At The Museum and think this would make for a great movie. Disneyland is awesome and I for one would love to see this made into a movie. I mean anything Disney does is great.

Tidbit...

Sorry, but Spaceship Earth is not in the Magic Kingdom. It's in Epcot. Totally separate park, so I wouldn't expect to see it in a Magic Kingdom movie. But hey, maybe they can squeeze it in at the end to line up a sequel! EPCOT: War of the World Showcase. I'd see it!

Gonna be honest. I would watch it. I love Disney, especially Disney World.

I remember a NES video game where you went around Disneyland or whatever and played games that represented each ride. I played the shit out of that game. I would totally watch this. Also 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea wasn't a ride, they had a submarine ride, and the Living Seas, but 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea is believe it or not...a book.

Also 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was the ride in Disney World. The Disneyland version was just Submarine Voyage but the Florida version was actually called 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

It is down. The last three times I went they were offering free dining to get people to come. People just can't afford vacations anymore.
