Disney’s ‘Space Mountain’ Movie Moving Ahead With ‘Cowboy Bebop’ Showrunners

In October 2020, it was reported that Disney was working on a live-action Space Mountain movie inspired by the iconic Disney Parks attraction.  According to a new report, it appears that the project is moving ahead with the showrunners of Netflix’s adaptation of Cowboy Bebop.  Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec have been tapped to write the film.  Plot details are under wraps.

Jonathan Eirich from Rideback, the banner that is behind Netflix’s hit live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender series, is producing the feature, which has been in development for several years, along with Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell of Safehouse Pictures. Harold was the project’s previous writer. Rideback’s Ryan Halprin is exec producing.

In case you aren’t familiar, Space Mountain is an indoor roller coaster set in outer space which first debuted in Florida’s Walt Disney World Resort in 1975.  The attraction then launched at Disneyland Resort in 1977 and is now in five of the six Disney parks around the world.

The duos’ credits also include credits include 2011’s Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol, directed by Brad Bird, and the two live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
