Disney's 'Rock 'N' Roller Coaster' May Be Re-Imagined as Universal Music Group Gains Control of Aerosmith Catalog

Disney’s ‘Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster’ May Be Re-Imagined as Universal Music Group Gains Control of Aerosmith Catalog. The fate of Disney’s Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster hangs in the balance as Aerosmith hands over their entire catalog to Universal Music Group, a sub-company of French Entertainment Company Vivendi, partially owned by chinese tech company Tencent. Though Disney and Aerosmith had a standing contract that would stand despite the rights exchange, said contract is rumored to have either recently expired or is set to expire soon.

Should Disney look to re-up the contract they would have to do so with Universal Music Group. As the current contract seems to run out Aerosmith merchandise and posters have been removed from the attraction in various stages, leading us to believe Disney may also be considering a retheming or reimagining of the famed and fan-favorite attraction, similar to the changes made at Disneyland Paris which saw the ride converted into an Iron-Man attraction for the Disneyland Paris Avengers Campus.

It should be noted that both UMG and Disney two will likely come to an agreement regarding the usage of the footage, audio, and theming of Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Disney will likely also use this opportunity to evaluate the use of space in the park to potentially make some changes and updates should a new contract fall through.
