Western Wednesday: The Hill

Western Wednesday is a weekly celebration of six-guns, steampunk, and sasquatch.

This is stretching the Western Wednesday premise by even my loose standards, but I like Yetis almost as much as Bigfoot, so I'm going with it. Disney's making a Yeti movie called (at least for now) The Hill.

As they continue finding theme park rides to make films from (The Jungle Cruise, The Magic Kingdom, and a new Haunted Mansion are also in the works), the studio has hired a screenwriter named Jason Dean Hall to create a script based on Disneyland's Matterhorn. I'm a Disney World kid, so I've never ridden the Matterhorn, but I understand that Harold the Abominable Snowman has been a feature of it since the '70s. The ride was originally created in 1959.

According to /Film, the story is about "five young adventure-seekers who, for mysterious reasons, are called to the top of the mountain and encounter a Yetis [sic] on the journey down." Because of the grammatical error, I can't tell if that's one Yeti or a bunch of them, but I guess it doesn't really matter. Either way, I'm in.
