Disney is planning a live action meets CGI film for Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, based on the popular ride at Disneyland which opened in 1955. The ride is based on The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. This movie apparently already has Pete Candeland set to direct but no other announcements have been made.
Let me start by saying that I love Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. It is my favorite ride in Fantasyland at Disneyland and is one of my favorite Disney rides overall, but is this really necessary? I don't know how many people have seen the cartoon version of Mr. Toad that Disney released in 1949, but it is fantastic. It is obviously an older animated film but it is seriously great. If you haven't seen it, the feature combines the stories of Mr. Toad from The Wind in the Willows and Ichabod Crane from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. It is on DVD and titled The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad. I watch it at least once a year and have been doing so since I was a kid. Must they update and/or ruin everything? Damn son.
Disney has already announced the movie for the Sleeping Beauty villain, Maleficent, which will star Angelina Jolie in the title role, we have already had four Pirates of the Caribbean movies with a possible 5th at hand, and they are also planning a movie based off the Matterhorn Bobsleds ride that will focus on the Yeti. A movie based on an animatronic Yeti you see for about two seconds while you are on the Matterhorn Bobsleds? Fucking hell.
I love you Disney, but why?
