Which Disney Ride Is Coming To TV?

Another Disney ride is headed to our screens.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the popular Big Thunder Mountain roller coaster will be adapted as a project for television.  It will be a made for TV film from ABC Studios  written by  Ice Age: Continental Drift‘s Jason Fuchs with Fast & Furious’ Chris Morgan attached to supervise and executive produce.

Big Thunder Mountain — which is featured at Disney parks in California, Tokyo Florida and Paris — centers on a mining town amid the gold rush in the American southwest that was a sacred spot to local Native Americans. Disaster ultimately strikes in the form of an earthquake (California, Paris), tsunami (Tokyo) and flash flood (Florida).

Details on the project are being kept under wraps.

    While I’ve enjoyed some of the Disney rides which have seen movie treatments (there are PARTS of the Haunted Mansion movie with Eddie Murphy that I did like), I can’t see this one working at all… There is no real story built into the attraction to begin with so I’m afraid that just trying to come up with a movie version of the ride is a simple case of putting the cart before the horse.
