Disneyland Paris confirmed plans to open an attraction based on Ratatouille, the rat who would be chef, at the France-based Walt Disney Studios Park in 2014.
With an estimated budget of $150 million, the new attraction ‘Ratatouille Kitchen Calamity’ — which had long been the subject of rumors and was formally announced by Disney back in February — will enable the public to follow the adventures of Remy, the young rat who dreams of becoming a great French chef.
“Our new family-focused Ratatouille attraction, which is scheduled to open in 2014, symbolises all of the creativity, innovation and emotion that guests associate with a Disneyland Paris experience,” said Euro Disney Chairman Philippe Gas. “By developing this new Ratatouille attraction, we continue to ensure our guests can experience their favourite Disney stories in memorable ways that only Disney can provide. The theme, which is very français, is a tribute to our capital and the unforgettable characters that make Ratatouille the ideal choice for an attraction that fits perfectly at Disneyland Paris.”
Without unveiling any more details, Disneyland Paris did say that it will “combine its storytelling talents with new-generation technology.” According to our sources, this new themed attraction is likely to feature a trackless dark ride with 3-D projections and special effects, while the riders will be shrunk down to the size of a rat and enter the culinary world of Gusteau’s kitchen.
