Buckle Up And Get Ready For 'Mr. Toad's Wild Ride'George Roush |
One of the best attractions at Disneyland has always been 'Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.' Where else could a young boy get behind the wheel of a car, crash through a fireplace, almost plunge into a river, be found guilty by a courtroom, collide head-on with a train, then get sent to hell? It looks like both the young and old will get to revisit this classic once again, but this time in a different sort of medium and safe from colliding into any poor innocent citizens.
While the ride itself was inspired by 'The Wind in the Willows,' there was never a proper movie based on the tale of a crazy toad and his worrisome friends. Disney is looking to turn the popular attraction (one of the few park originals that opened in 1955 and is still standing) into a full-length feature film.
'Tron: Legacy' producer Justin Springer will bring the ride to life and they're currently looking for a writer. This will be a live-action/CGI movie so we're all curious to see what they do with it. If they can keep it in the vein of 'Roger Rabbit' and make it crazy and fun, then they'll surely have a hit on their hands. We'll keep you updated on the progress of 'Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.'
