In The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki...Room?

I've been hearing about a film by Ahmet Zappa and Michael Wilson that may or may not be based on the Enchanted Tiki Room.

This Hollywood Reporter article reports that Disney has been in negotiations with Zappa and Wilson on a spec script for a movie based on Polynesian mythology called Tiki. Disney has denied that it is based on the Enchanted Tiki Room, although it could have served as an inspiration.

I am glad its not based on the Enchanted Tiki Room. Don't get me wrong. I absolutely love the Tiki Room. In fact, its one of my favorite attractions at Disneyland. But, I just can't imagine a whole film based on it. I just imagine it devolving into a Polynesian bird version of Beverly Hills Chihuahua.

Now, if it were based on just the Enchanted Tiki Room Gardens featuring the Tiki Gods, I could be up for that. I'm quite enamored with Polynesian lore. I'd be fairly excited to see a film based on Polynesian mythology that they could tie into the Disney Parks and Resorts (most notably the soon-to-come Aulani Hotel in Hawai'i).
