‘Space Mountain’ Live-Action Movie in the Works at Disney

Disney is developing a live-action “Space Mountain” movie as part of the studio’s latest effort to expand its universe of films about its venerable theme park rides.

The studio has tapped Joby Harold, whose credits include “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” and Zack Snyder’s upcoming “Army of the Dead,” to write the script and produce with spouse Tory Tunnell and their Safehouse Pictures banner. Rideback, headed by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, is also producing.

Harold is currently writing and executive producing the Obi-Wan Kenobi “Star Wars” series for Disney Plus and executive produced “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.”

Space Mountain, an indoor roller coaster set in outer space, was unveiled at Florida’s Walt Disney World Resort in 1975 as a follow-up to the Matterhorn bobsled ride at Disneyland. The ride was an immediate success and followed by installations at Disneyland in 1977 and three other Disney theme parks.
