  • [Question] Outside IP's you'd like Disney to get rights to for a dark ride..

    Figure this would be a fun topic, since we know Disney has a history of getting outside IP's for the use of attractions. For me, even though the original movie is old now.. there IS a sequel in the works, I'd love Disney to make another deal with the Jim Henson Company for a darkride based around the Dark Crystal. Could you imagine an imersive dark ride on par with PotC or HM, using detailed AA's? It'd be epic. Sadly it'd never happen, but god it'd be awesome.

      Labyrinth would be great too... I prefer Dark Crystal over it, plus since DC was nothing but puppets, it translates into AA's pretty seamlessly.

            Make it an entire land at Animal Kingdom or build a Middle Earth theme park.

              Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson appearantly are decently close, you know, and share same sensibilites since Guillermo was attached to the Hobbit for a good while. Now that del Toro is on board making a Haunted Mansion movie for Disney, who knows what might happen if he talks up the parks to Jackson....

                God, I would love a Middle Earth theme park.
                That is seriously the biggest missed opportunity of all time.
                As much as I love Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings is so much more timeless and has a huge fan following. A theme park would be perfect.


                I always thought the boat segment from the new Willy Wonka would make a cool ride.

                    Jackson doesn't own the rights though - they'd have to go through either New Line or the Tolkien Family.

                    Labyrinth was produced by George Lucas, so there's an in for you!
                    And Bowie's been licensing the rights for Jared action figures: and Jennifer Connelly has a relationship with Disney (Rocketeer) so getting the actors on board wouldn't be impossible

                      I'm surprised nobody's picked up Avatar yet, since it was a major commercial success and that seems to be their principal criterion.

                        Oh, a Lord of the Rings theme. The land starts with a replica of the Shire. Small homes with big round doors and thatched roofs, gardens of corn and flowers, windmills, fish ponds, and quaint little shops and restaurants. Entering the LOTR attraction each visitor is presented with a yellow plastic ring. For all you old computer guys, imagine a write ring for an open reel mag tape. You start out along a winding queue, surrounding by lush foliage and teeming with wildlife, eventually turning into thick, shady forests. The pathway runs parallel to a cool, rippling stream. As you move on with your group the vegetation gradually changes to bushes and shrubs. You notice that you are now walking on a slight incline. The foliage gets thinner as the surroundings change to prairie. The incline has increased and without any shade you're starting to feel very warm under the warm California sun. Now an hour into the trek you're feeling thirsty but there are no water fountains in sight. You press on up the steadily increasing incline. You soon realize that you're hungry. You know you have a granola bar in your pocket but you don't dare take it out because you recall the "No eating" sign at the entrance and who knows where the Disney cameras might be. Now the surroundings have turned to rock. The pathway has gotten tight, and the conditions are getting unbearable as the hot sun radiates off of the hard surfaces. Kids are crying, adults are cussing and you struggle to keep pace. It's now been 2 hours and you're feeling like you might faint and think of turning around, but the pathway is tight, you're far from where you started, and you rationalize that it couldn't be much farther. Finally, the path levels out, you hear happy voices ahead, and you realize you must be nearing the end. Making the final turn you're confronted by a large, volcano shaped canister displaying: "Please deposit rings here before exiting". You toss your ring in the bin and head out the exit into the LOTR gift shop.

                          The Lord of the Ring sounds very intriguing.
                          Also, since there's a Monsters, Inc. and SciFi Diner in the Disney family, I thought a good dark ride would be to have a Monster Town attraction where all monsters live (similiar to Toon Town story line). You board your Omnimover car and keep running into various monsters, or keep running away from the likes of Godzilla or Alien. Of course, there could be some bonifide Disney monsters, like Chernabog, or Elliot.
                          I am old. But still love Disneyland.

                            Beetlejuice. There's the Tim Burton/Disney connection, with him being a CalArts alumnus(if you haven't yet, see "Waking Sleeping Beauty", to see his little "cameo"), and also, most of the "hereafter" scenes look like they're already lit with blacklights. That, and the absence of a lot of yet to be developed CG, make it something that could lend itself well to a dark ride.

                              No chance of Disney getting hold of Lord of the Rings. Prof. Tolkien held an intense dislike for Walt Disney's work, and the family is unlikely to go against his oft-expressed wishes on the matter.
