Briefly: Michael Giacchino just can’t quit the world of Brad Bird.

The ride is called Ratatouille: L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy (or, “The Totally Zany Adventures of Remy) and will feature music by none other than, you guess it, Michael Giacchino! The Ratatouille ride is expected to open later this year. Click here for more info. [Instagram]
