Following what is expected to be a wild success with Hyperspace Mountain at Disneyland Paris, the resort has this morning confirmed its plans for the future beyond the twenty-fifth anniversary: each year Space Mountain will be vaguely rethemed to a new film franchise. A spokesman for the resort told Magical DLP that Walt Disney Studios Parks’ Season of the Force had been “actually really rather good” so it has been decided to jump on that bandwagon once more. The resort has announced the first four tie-ins which will follow from Hyperspace Mountain, as well as the absolutely definitely completely official publicity material for them.
(2018) Space Mountain: De la Terre à la Vroom
Themed around the successful PIXAR franchise, Cars, this iteration of the attraction will have guests loaded into a beautifully themed Victorian steampunk cannon and blasted into Radiator Springs. The steampunk trains will have googly eyes fitted to make them into living vehicles.
(2019) Space Maleficent: De la Terre a la Tanière
Themed around the classic Sleeping Beauty film, guests will be loaded into a beautifully themed Victorian steampunk cannon and blasted into Maleficent’s lair. Although a sequel to Maleficent has not been announced, Disneyland Paris assumes one will come become Disney appears incapable of developing original ideas.
(2020) Indiana Jones et le Space Mountain
Themed around Lucasfilm’s successful Indiana Jones franchise, guests will be loaded into a beautifully themed Victorian steampunk cannon and blasted into an old temple.
(2021) Space floating-Mountain: Mission Avatar
Themed around James Cameron’s successful world of Pandora, guests will be loaded into a beautifully themed Victorian steampunk cannon and blasted around large floating rocks. Disneyland Paris hope that by 2021 the sequel to Avatar might finally arrive.
In an EXCLUSIVE interview with Disneyland Paris spokesman, Jean d’DLP, Magical DLP was told that changes to the Space Mountain attraction were definitely not for advertising purposes, Jean added that if the resort wanted to add to or capitalise on the success of film franchises, they would be opening said attractions at least vaguely near the time of a film launch.
