The Great Movie Ride Was Just Recreated by Hundreds of Cast Members
Three years ago today, we wrote on MickeyBlog, “An era has ended. The Great Movie Ride, the original anchor attraction at what was then known as Disney-MGM Studios is no more. As you well know, Disney’s Hollywood Studios is currently undergoing massive changes as it builds toward the arrival of Star Wars Land – Galaxy’s Edge in 2019.”
We’ve come a long way since then, and the good news is, The Great Movie Ride is back (sort of)!
Hundreds of former Great Movie Ride cast members have been working tirelessly the last several months putting together an online revival of The Great Movie Ride.
As we teased a couple of weeks ago, “This includes the preshow, the ride, and the finale. In fact, we’ve learned that the finale is an exact replica of the original we all love and remember!”
From the original press release, “This virtual attraction will send guests on a journey that begins just outside the doors of the Chinese Theatre at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and ends with an exact reenactment of the finale montage. For a fun twist, this digital version of the attraction will allow viewers to choose whether to be kidnapped by a gangster or ride off into the sunset with a bandit.”
The Two Versions
We are excited to share both versions with you now. Here i the Bandit version! It’s Show Time. Ready When You Are, C.B.
Here is the Gangster version:
What do you think? These cast members deserve a lot of credit for a job very well done. We here at MickeyBlog think it’s incredible!
