Today in whimsy news: Wes Anderson is plotting a theme park. By his side in the venture is—as usual—composer Mark Mothersbaugh, who scored Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, and The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, and is an acomplished visual artist in his own right.

“I hope to soon secure the means to commission the construction of an important and sizeable theme park to be conceived and designed entirely by Mark Mothersbaugh,” Anderson noted in the forward to the book Mark Mothersbaugh: Myopia. “For 40 years he has set about creating a body of work which amounts to his own Magic Kingdom, where the visitor is amused and frightened, often simultaneously.”

No word yet on when and where this venture will be located, but we’re already planning our pilgrimages. Who wouldn’t want to go on the Grand Budapest sled ride, get in touch with our inner Tenenbaum at the ice cream café, or go for a ride on The Darjeeling Limited?

Your movie, Disney.
