After Sony Pictures dumped this film after it's 1997 US theatrical release, Terry Jones struggled trying to get this film published, but no Hollywood distributor wanted to take it. That was, until in 1998, Walt Disney Home Video bought the American rights to the film, added in a few sound effects and even changed the title after the name of the rides at Disneyland and Walt Disney World, "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" (though the Walt Disney World Version of the ride closed that same year). It was released onto VHS in 1999 and onto DVD in 2004. See more »

Terry Jones's adaptation of "Wind in the Willows" is wonderful!! I found it very interesting to watch, and it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time! I'm not usually a fan of Disney movies, but I saw this and flipped! I loved it! I think people who don't like this movie really don't appreciate the wonderful Terry Jones. Yes, I understand some of the humor is a little "adult" for some of the younger viewers, but there is plenty for them as well (I mean, as a former python, how could Jones resist a few jokes here and there). The kids will laugh at Mr. Toad's zany exploits trying to get his motor car! Even funnier is Mole, Rat, and Badger trying to cure him! What else to say... I just thought this was a wonderful film, and a must see for (a)Disney Lovers (b) Python Lovers (c) and people who just want to see a different adaptation on a movie!!
