    Yes, it does have a mythological vibe to it, but I could see an entire theme park devoted to LOTR and still not fit all of the important parts.

    However if anyone ever replicates Minas Tirith, I'll be the first one in line!

    How about a Muppet Movie scene? or Just retheme it to the Great Muppet Movie Ride.

    Do they still have a CM narrating it? When I went on it I had a horrible hostess. She was just bored and it made me really bored too.

    Not one of my favorites at all. Call me a wuss, but I always close my eyes when I go through that scene. Those aliens scare the bejebus out of me!

    Gone with the Wind is not owned by MGM. It is the property of Ted Turner along with The Wizard of Oz. MGM had to sell off it's film archives to stay in business several years ago.

    I think we are all in agreement that the attraction needs updating.

    Doesn't Disney own parts of Paramount? Someone with that corporate know how please pipe in here. :P

    I'm sure there is plenty to pick from in that regard.

    I recall reading here: http://jimhillmedia.com/blogs/jim_hi...05/16/605.aspx
    that the original plans, for the part where the Fantasia scene is, was supposed to be the start of the Wizard of Oz part and was supposed to be a tornado effect. But Ted Turner had only licensed a specific time length of scene for WoO to occupy in the GMR and having that as the tornado scene made it exceed the time period, so they changed it to the Fantasia scene. It would have made more sense thematically to go around that corner through a simulated tornado, then round the corner to see the house on top of the witch. Having the Fantasia scene there definitely has always had an "afterthought feeling" to me.

James Cagney in the mob movie section.... Sigourney Weaver in Aliens. Clint Eastwood and John Wayne for the western.

    As far as I can remember, I think the Wizard of Oz scene might be the only one where they dont use the actress or actor names and go with the character names.


    Honestly, my favorite part of the entire ride is the movie at the end. I always love to see my favorite clips from movies through out history...
    The entire kidnapping is a change too. Why would some actor kidnap us and be trying to run from actors playing lawmen?

    It was owned by Ted Turner. The current owner is Time Warner and the folks at Warner Brothers. As for the ride operator, yes they are still there. Sometime you get a bad one and sometime a good one. Last year, I got Rosie O'Donnell look-like. I was strangel. lol.

    Speaking of the ride operators,back during the holidays in 2000, I rode the movie ride and had a funny experience. Basically the car was half emptly and it was just me, my brother, and cousin with a few other people. During the ride, I would tell our guy not to get out of the car in the alley. lol. Basically he missed up his line and started laughing.

    No, Disney doesn't own any part of Paramount. They have made joint venture with them during the production of Popeye and Dragonslayer.

    Honestly, of all of the movie franchises I've seen, I don't know how any theme park company could do a LOTR attraction well and do it justice to the books/movies, they're just so massive in scale

    The document relates to "improvements" to "real property"... is it needed just for changes inside a building? Or does this suggest that external changes (to the show building) are possibly planned as well?
