What’s interesting about Disney theme park-inspired film adaptations are that the goal is to bring the viewers into the parks. So, when Disney makes a new Pirates of the Caribbean or Haunted Mansion, they hope the boxoffice is big enough that they’re create new lifelong Disneyworld or Disneyland fans.
I chuckle as I report to you that Buena Vista is working on a feature version of the Matterhorn rollercoaster ride, also known as the Matterhorn Bobsleds, which has been part of Disneyland’s Fantasyland section since 1959. It never works, which is why I find this hilarious, although the modern version at Disneyworld’s Animal Kingdom is pretty intense.
Anyways, the studio has hired Jason Dean Hall to write a script for the project, which has a working title of The Hill. The idea is to do a thrilling, fast-paced movie centering on five young adventure seekers who, for mysterious reasons, are called to the top of the mountain and encounter a Yetis on the journey down. There’s said to be a supernatural twist.
