There's an interesting quote from Disney Studio's Chairman Dick Cook in this week's Newsweek. An excerpt from the article:

"Remember when movies used to become theme-park rides? Now theme-park rides become movies. Disney will release "The Country Bears" in July, and is hard at work on films based on Disneyland attractions "The Haunted Mansion" and "Pirates of the Caribbean." "You are talking about Disney icons that thousands of millions of people have experienced at our parks," says Cook. "They both rank as top attractions and they lend themselves to a movie. You are capitalizing on what is a part of pop culture right now. And history has shown that if you take something out of pop culture and do it well, the rewards can be tremendous." For the studio, he means. Audiences, meanwhile, may have to settle for some pretty familiar fare."

I think the only thing safe to say, despite the horde of rumors/expectations flying around the 'net right now, is that the Haunted Mansion movie might, or might not, be an awesome movie-going experience. We'll just have to wait and see...
