But nobody said anything about this...
Let's build a brand new attraction. Bear Country needs something. Well, what's a great movie? I know! Song of the South!
Yes, but nobody can see it and we'll never release it on video so it will really mean nothing to people.
Who cares? In fact, let's even make all the area music come from that film. We'll have singing birds and turtles. You know things that kids and grandparents will particularly like.
Yeah, and let's get the teenagers in by adding a huge water drop.
But then won't the grandparents not want to go? And then we'll need a height requirement and kids won't be able to go.
Yes, kids would definitely love this, but tough! They'll go when they're teenagers and have some money to spend in the parks.
What scenes will we use from Song of the South? Well, let's do that scene where Br'er Rabbit gets caught in the tar.
yeah, good idea. But again, a little controversial.
So change it to honey. Nobody will know.
Let's do a scene where Br'er Bear is just hanging from a rope, you know like he does in the movie.
Don't we need to set up the scene in the ride so it makes sense if you haven't seen the movie lately.
Of course not! People will remember it from the last time the movie was released in theaters and from their pirated copies of the film.
And let's be sure to use actual quotes from the movie in the queue on wooden signs.
Okay, but those have African American dialects which might be offensive.
Well, still use them, but try to use more politically acceptable English in them.
You know, it maybe costly to have lots of singing birds and animals and other AA figures. How will we get around that?
Rip out that America Sings attraction and just use those figures!
But won't everybody see those and realize we took the cheap way out?
Nah, we'll be creative, like adding bow ties and hats to the characters. Except of course for the vultures. We'll want to remove their hats.
Okay! This is all planned out except one thing. We'll have a big vacant spot in Tomorrowland in that rotating building. What will do with that?
I know! Let's just make it offices for now and then worry about it in another seven or eight years! Then we'll put something AMAZING in it!
