Published: April 15, 2014 at 4:14 PMHey, be fair - perhaps the Pixar theme park guy meant *Pixar* had never done anything like that before. I mean, there's so few Pixar rides around - apart from Crush's Coaster, Paris just has the Toy Soldier drop, where you're small enough to fit in a plastic toy soldier, or the Slinky ride where you're on a giant slinky, or the RC Racer... which imagines you're shrunk down to fit into a remote control car.
I mean, come on, Ratatouille is totally the first time Pixar have shrunk anybody down for a theme park experience. Apart from A Bug's Land, obviously.

I love that this attraction was built, especially as it breaks the franchise rule: from Bob Iger in 2008, "'Ratatouille' is an extremely good animated film and will be a classic unto itself, but it is not a franchise. You are not going to see 'Ratatouille' attractions in parks."

Published: April 16, 2014 at 1:27 PMI know its soooooo far away, but have you by chance heard if they are doing a soft opening for this ride? I'll be in Paris the 18th thru the 26, so I would be barely missing it :-(
