I've been on a Disney kick lately and after seeing movies take place in places like the Middle-East, China, Denmark (Little Mermaid), Africa, New Orleans, New York, and so on it got me thinking...Why haven't they made a movie that takes place in Japan yet? So that begs the question, which Japanese legend or story would be the best idea to be adapted into a Disney film and would you stick to traditional animation or 3D like all movies are these days?

For me, there's only one Japanese legend that can easily be adapted into a Disney film in my opinion: the Legend of Momotaro. For those unfamiliar with it, it's about an elderly couple that found this giant peach in a river near their house; from that peach, there was a baby boy inside and they named him Momotaro which translates to "peach boy" in Japanese. When he grows up, Momotaro befriends a monkey, a talking dog, and a pheasant and they fight a band of Oni to protect his village. Now the story varies in different parts of Japan but it is one of their most popular tales to tell children. Needless to say, I believe this legend would be perfect to adapt into a Disney film. Question is, how would Japanese audiences receive it?

So now it's your turn; what story or stories do you think would be great to adapt into a Disney movie and which country would this story be from?

I feel like celebrating today. I just went to a job interview at a local Burger King, and I got the job! I start Monday August 15th.
