Disney, always on the look out for a synergistic property that uses cross promotion to advance sales in multiple platforms, is planning an adaptation of the beloved theme park attraction Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. The ride, which currently resides in Fantasyland in Disneyland (the Walt Disney World counterpart was sadly shuttered in 1998 and replaced by a cutesy Winnie the Pooh ride), utilizes characters from Disney's 1949 adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's fantastical "The Wind in the Willows," a children's novel about animals that wear pants and speak with English accents. "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" is currently looking for writers to adapt the property.
