Remember back when the Pirates of the Caribbean was merely an iconic Disneyland attraction, before it got Hollywood-ed and Depp-utized? It would appear that Disney is once again mining its theme park for fresh movie franchises and they’ve settled on … the Haunted Mansion. No wait, they already did that (and are doing it again, hopefully to a greater degree of success).
No, this time, they’ve settled on your favorite pun-filled boat excursion, the Jungle Cruise. And who better to make the backside of water a must-see event than Sheriff Woody and Buzz Lightyear? Or, more accurately, their alter egos Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, who have been confirmed to star in the live-action picture.
Plot details for the film haven’t been released yet, but I’m picturing Jumanji with more … actually I’m just picturing Jumanji.
What do you think, fellow Disneyland fans? Guaranteed cinematic success or jungle-themed Titanic (um, the real one that sank, not the mega-successful movie)?
