The popular ride comes home in a Wii exclusive shooting gallery game.

To this day Toy Story remains one of Disney and Pixar’s most popular franchises, thanks to the original, heartwarming film. Of course, the excellent sequel, countless tie-ins, spin-offs, attractions at the Disney theme parks, and videogames also help.

This fall Disney Interactive intends to capture all of this in a brand new title called Toy Story Mania. The title is a shooting gallery game based on the Disney theme park attraction of the same name.

The game will feature all of the Toy Story characters, including franchise stars Buzz and Woody, in settings based on classic carnival games. The Wii version will include over ten stages, some based on the attraction, others exclusive to the console version. Like the theme park version the game will feature bonus levels in 3D.

Finally Toy Story Mania will feature head-to-head and co-op modes that unlock easter eggs and additional content.

Toy Story Mania will be available this fall.

Man, they make that theme park ride sound a lot more epic than it actually is.  You know what it is?  You get in a car that takes you from 3D video screen to 3D video screen shooting various generic CGI targets with your pullstring cannons.  It's about as low-budget as it's possible to be for a Disney ride attraction.  Still a blast to ride, mind you, but c'mon...just about any Toy Story-themed shooting gallery could be called "based on the popular theme park attaction".  I'm interested to see if they add anything to the Wii game to add some depth to the experience because the ride is fun but pretty shallow.

That's why it probably got ported in the first place. It was shallow enough that they borrowed the game code and converted it for the Wii.
