Disney is doing a film based on yet another of their park attractions, the Matterhorn ride. Jason Dean Hall (“Spread”) will pen the script, known as “The Hill”.

I don’t think I rode the Matterhorn when I visited Disney, but it’s hard not to spot it – it’s huge!

The Hollywood Reporter says :

The Matterhorn, also known as the Matterhorn Bobsleds, is part of Disneyland’s Fantasyland section. Opened June 1959, the elaborate ride was inspired by Walt Disney’s desire for a toboggan-themed roller coaster as well as thoughts he had after an extended trip to Switzerland, the site of the famed mountain. The ride, a centerpiece of the park, was refurbished in 1978, with one of the upgrades being the addition of three automatronic Abominable Snowmen (aka Yetis) who growl at riders.
The idea behind ”The Hill” is to do a thrilling, fast-paced movie centering on five young adventure seekers who, for mysterious reasons, are called to the top of the mountain and encounter a Yetis on the journey down.

In addition to the “Pirates of the Caribbean”, “Country Bears” and “Haunted Mansion” movies, Disney have a “Magic Kingdom” project coming up.
