Disney Yeti Movie Project? Could this affect E:E?

Came across this news item on a Disney project, originally supposed to have
something to do with the Matterhorn, but now being called a "Yeti Project".

I wonder.

If they are serious about doing something like this, they'll have a different
yeti design for the movie--and then it can be put back into E:E to create
that famous Iger "synergy" they're all shooting for these days.

So--might make sense that the company is saying "hey, let's wait to see what
happens with our Yeti movie project before we do anything with Disco Yeti".

Unless, that is, the movie is gonna be titled "Disco Yeti". But I don't think so.

And if it fixes our Yeti then I welcome it :sohappy:

Maybe the movie is to convince us all that a Yeti in it's natural state doesn't move and is surrounded by strobe lights............ ;)
 
Do you think the idea of putting out a new movie based on this attraction is to try to get some sponsers to help pay to fix the yeti? :shrug:

I'm fine with this as long as this doesn't change the story of EE, I think that right now the theme is perfect and any move tie in would make it cheesy. Here's looking at you pirates...

Perhaps there will someday be one of those documentaries about the rise and fall of the E:E yeti. That would be a funny yet tragic movie.

Does anyone think they'll repurpose the "disco yeti" to another portion of the ride after they put in a new one? I think an extra appearance by the Yeti would add a lot to the ride. Maybe in the first tunnel after the drop?

I hear they have cast John Travolta as the yeti.



He's really gotten in shape for the role!

Since we don't know exactly what's broken, I could be wrong, but I think fixing the yeti wouldn't require a whole new figure. He's not what we think of as a traditional AA, with all the mechanics contained inside the figure. He's more like a marionette, with a lot of his nuts and bolts outside of his actual body and hidden by the angle from which we view him.

:ROFLOL: Am I the only one that sees a potentially hilarious movie with this? Think Happy Feet only with a family of Yetis... and it would go hand in hand with the existing attraction, without the need for renovation... Just sayin'...:lookaroun
