Disney's racist Splash Mountain soon to be "Tiana's Bayou Adventure"

sorry if already posted.

Yahoo article

quote:

The Walt Disney Company Disney unveiled its new Splash Mountain concept art, themed to 'The Princess and the Frog.'

Splash Mountain's old theming is getting flung into the briar patch.

Two years after announcing plans to refurbish the classic log flume to remove ties to the racist 1946 film Song of the South, Disney has revealed a name and expected opening for the updated attraction inspired by the 2009 animated film The Princess and the Frog.

Tiana's Bayou Adventure is set to open in late 2024 at Disneyland and Disney World's Magic Kingdom, the company unveiled Friday at Essence Fest in New Orleans while joined on stage at the French Quarter's Preservation Hall by Stella Chase, the daughter of Chef Leah Chase, who inspired Princess Tiana's storyline in the movie. Jenifer Lewis, who voiced Mama in the film, also performed at the event.

"In many ways, Tiana's Bayou Adventure is a love letter to New Orleans. Like the musical city that inspired this attraction, Tiana's second act is about a community working in harmony to achieve something extraordinary. She reminds us of an immutable truth we can all relate to: 'If you do your best each and every day, good things are sure to come your way.' And that's a melody we can all sing along to!" said Charita Carter, the executive producer of relevancy activations at Walt Disney Imagineering, in a statement.

So it’s Louisiana themed now. Tiana was Princess and the Frog?

This is my 11 year old's favorite ride. I'm sure he's gonna be fired up to ride "Tiana's Bayou Adventure". This is so fricking beyond stupid, I can't even believe it.

Well, there is Monkey Hill.
Oh, I'm sure we can't make monkey references.

Are they going to be authentic to NOLA? If so, they will need snipers set up along the flume.

This.

But I don't see any issue with it. They're rebranding a ride, which they've done a billion times before on other rides (40,000 Leagues Under the Sea for example).

To be fair, the frozen franchise has made Disney a lot more money than the Princess and the frog

Using Tiana is not a bad idea, but it is a little bit of a virtue signal
