Disney is continuing to develop movies around some of its most popular theme park attractions. The newest attraction to get the movie treatment is Space Mountain.
Disney has hired Joby Harold to write a movie based on the attraction. He will also be a producer for the film with spouse Tory Tunnell and their Safehouse Pictures banner. . His credits include King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Zack Snyder’s upcoming Army of the Dead. Rideback, which is run by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, is also producing.
Harold is currently writing and executive producing the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars series for Disney+.
Space Mountain is an indoor roller coaster that first opened at Walt Disney World Resort’s Magic Kingdom in 1975. It was made as a follow up to Disneyland’s Matterhorn. Two years later in 1977, the attraction came to Disneyland as well. Since then it also has been recreated at Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, and Hong Kong Disneyland.
At this time, there is no known plot for Space Mountain. DAPS MAGIC will continue to follow this story and provide updates as they become available.
