    ***RUMOR*** Changes coming to The Great Movie Ride ***RUMOR***

    I just read this on screamscape... Anyone here anything about this. If this is true, it would make my day, as I love the GMR, but it has fallen apart over the years.

    Some of the changes mentions include the removal of the Alien scene (Noooo!) in favor of a Lord of the Rings scene. There was also talk about bringing back certain water and bubble effects from the early portion of the ride and replacing the entire Western action scene with something that wouldn’t need that big costly fire effect. Tarzan may also be replaced with something new since Disney audiences associate more with the animated Tarzan film instead of the old live action Tarzan.

    Personally I think what they need to do is upgrade the Alien scene to a scene from Aliens which could put their animatronic technology to the test by recreating a battle between the space marines and a horde of aliens. (Game Over Man!) Give the tour guide a machine gun and let them clear the way ahead as you go. How cool would that be? Kind of like a 21st century version of the old Battlestar Galactica attraction that was once part of the backlot tour at Universal Studios Hollywood.

    I think they should make the whole ride Nemo themed.

    I am surprised that it has held out against Disney/Pixar characterizations this long.

    I think a GMR update is long overdue. There are SO many great movies out there that people care about more than the ones currently in place. Of course, The Wizard of Oz scene has to stay.

    I would love to see them redo this ride with emphasis on highly detailed sets. I have always found most of the sets (including Wizard of Oz) don't seem real.

    BTW, the Magical Definition Podcast is awesome.

    This was reported long ago. Jim stole the story from one of my friends on WDWmagic... but anyhow... yes, it is true.

    Well, this is a welcome surprise. I sincerely hope we get some good films in there.

    I think a Gone With the Wind scene would be wonderful. I think removing the Alien sequence stinks, there are many other scenes in that ride that could go way before that.

    However, I am happy with any upgrade of any kind.

    I would love to see something for gone with the wind and i never liked alien but I don't like horror movies as a whole. as long as they don't put in some slasher movie scene and keep singing in the rain and mary poppins I am for a makeover.

    They need to do something better with the Sorceror's Apprentice scene.

    Awwwww... I love hearing him hollering all the way into the Casablanca scene. It just totally cracks me up for some reason.

    Well since Gone with the Wind is MGM ( I think) I doubt they would put that in there, because they are moving away from the MGM properties....

    Since they putting an emphasis on Lucas films, how about take out the tarzan portion and put in luke and leia swinging across the open chasm in the death star... That would be cool
