Everyone wants Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride: The MovieOr at least Disney does, because that’s the next theme park ride to become a film. Remember, the ride Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride is based on the animated film The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, which is based on Kenneth Grahame’s book The Wind in the Willows. So we got some sort of odd circular phenomenon going on here. You might even call it a wild ride, of a Mr. Toad variety! The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise can be blamed again, which has also spawned the Country Bears film and the Haunted Mansion movie (which is also being rebooted!)
Now, The Wind in the Willows is an awesome book (the book contains the word “ass”, which is always awesome when you are 7!), and I loved the stop motion animated film when I was a kid. Can Disney top this? Will this be Speed with a toad? Find out when we do, years from now!
