There’s Going to Be an It’s A Small World Movie

Deadline reports that Disney has tapped National Treasure series helmer Jon Turteltaub to direct a film adaption of their "It's A Small World" ride, which is being envisioned as the start of a possible franchise for the studio. Disney has had luck with ride-inspired films in the pastnamely, Pirates of the Caribbean — but we have to say, "It's A Small World" doesn't really provide much to work with in the way of narrative momentum. Still, if you enjoy long, slow, musical boat rides accompanied by animatronic dolls embodying national stereotypes, you will maybe enjoy at least the first of these movies.
