I still think a Halloween Town would be cooler than a Villains Land. But if we HAD to go with the Villains Land idea, an Oogie Boogie ride has potential (maybe a flat ride based on his giant roulette wheel?).I'd love to see Oogie Boogie get a ride. I've always been jealous of the Nightmare retheme of Haunted Mansion. A full on Nightmare ride at WDW would make me so happy.
Some sort of Pink Elephants on Parade ride would be cool, too.
Hans, Bellwether, Robert Callaghan (I might've spelled his name wrong), and... most of the twist villains, honestly seem like they'd be hard to make attractions for anyhow. And apparently Bellwether is also going to be the main villain of the Zootopia Dinosaur retheme, so there's that too.And hopefully keep it to the really great ones, so ideally no Hans, no Bellwether, none of these silly twist villains that make little impact.
It was certainly successful enough for Disney to greenlight MORE live action remakes (refresh my memory, was Cruella greenlit before or after Maleficent was released?).Maleficent 1 made $750m+ at the global BO.
I'm still convinced that they blew most of the ride's budget on the animatronics and then had to make do with what little they had left. The "climax" might as well have just had a giant neon sign reading "SORRY, FOLKS, WE RAN OUT OF MONEY".No, the one in California ended up costing that much after trying to fix it multiple times.
