Published: September 30, 2010 at 3:07 PMIf it's a really good movie and not just following the same story as the attractions, it really doesn't matter how many ride-based movies they make.
Published: September 30, 2010 at 3:41 PMThis might not be a good idea. Maybe they should put in a joke about an "underground city".
P.S.: I was also thinking about Kingdom Keepers when I read the title! :)

Kingdom Keepers would not be bad!
On a totally unrelated thought, I believe Disney owns Percy Jackson (at least the publishing rights). Suprised they didn't make that movie or a ride/attraction involving that.

Published: September 30, 2010 at 7:17 PMWhat would you like to see Disney do with these film concepts?
How about scrap 'em? I was excited about Haunted Mansion only because del Toro was involved. I haven't even heard of these other adaptations.
It's pretty ludicrous. Movies are adapted from books because there are sufficient details in the book to warrant creating a movie. Basing a movie on a five-minute theme park attraction is over-the-top. Disney really needs new ideas.

What a rubbish idea !
Published: October 1, 2010 at 11:10 AMi personally think that if Disney is going 2 do anything new, they should remake some of the old Disney movies that starred a young Kurt Russell....I grew up on COMPUTER WORE TENNIS SHOES, etcetra.....i know Kirk Cameron did a TV remake years ago, but it didnt hold a candle.....2 bad Caesar Romero is gone, he made a great villain!
Published: October 1, 2010 at 11:42 AMLots of Disney attractions are inspired by moves, why not movies by inspired by disney attractions. after all, aren't the parks and attractions just ways of promoting movies anyway?

Published: October 1, 2010 at 7:24 PMTo much meta? Or maybe just meta you know? The Magic Kingdom is already a copy of a copy of a copy.... Dont care about another layer (or about how many copy layers there are i got no idear about). All sucesfull massapeal stories are copies these days. AS long as the copies are mixed enough thats fine. Heck, if they just copy a story i like 1:1 and do a film with modern technology, im fine with that aswell. However my expectation is they will rather build some cross marketing franchise which isnt really the same as a good copy and typically rather anoying.
