This just in! Disney is developing a movie based on the iconic Space Mountain attraction found at Disney Parks.
The Hollywood Reporter shared Friday that the film is currently set intended for a theatrical release, though no release date has been announced yet.
For the Space Mountain film project, Disney has hired Joby Harold, who is currently writing and executive producing the new Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars series. As for who is producing, that would be Rideback — run by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich and known for Disney’s live-action Aladdin, which made it big at the box office.
“Logline details are being kept hidden amidst the rings of Saturn but it is described as a family adventure,” according to THR.
So far, we know little to nothing about the Space Mountain film reportedly in development. But it definitely sounds intriguing. Space Mountain is an attraction that has been at Disney Parks for decades, with the original at Magic Kingdom. Fans around the world consider Space Mountain to be among their favorite roller coasters — and for good reason! No matter which Disney Park it’s at, Space Mountain is a thrill.
Unfamiliar with Space Mountain? Here’s the official attraction description from the Disney World website:
Blast off on a rip-roaring rocket into the furthest reaches of outer space on this roller-coaster ride in the dark.
Zoom Through the Galaxy
Dip and careen into the inky blackness as a futuristic soundtrack echoes all around you. Fly past shooting stars and celestial satellites. Roar past streaking orbs of light, wayward comets and migrant meteors. Feel the pull of gravity as you’re drawn into a swirling wormhole!
This wouldn’t be the first time Disney developed a film based on an attraction. The Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise is based on the original Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Disneyland park, the final attraction that Walt Disney personally had a hand in before he passed away. Disney is also currently working on a new film based on Haunted Mansion (a classic Disney attraction that has already had a film based on it). Plus, we know a film based on Jungle Cruise and starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is also coming soon.
