Buddy Ebsen said he'd do it.

About his Davy Crockett sequel screenplay, Fess Parker said;

"In 1980, I wrote a screenplay that was a sequel to Davy and Georgie at Alamo. It was based on the De la Pena diary that possibly Davy Crockett had survived and was executed afterwards. I took the liberty of saying that Santa Ana thought there might be some value in hostages so he kept Crockett and his friend Georgie, alive and put them in a prison in Mexico City.

"So I wrote this story about Crockett and Georgie escaping 25 years later. And Buddy Ebsen agreed to do it. It was really a fun story about escaping Mexico City, going aboard a ship that was destined to New Orleans, but didn't tell Davy and Georgie that they were first going down to West Africa to pickup slaves to take to New Orleans. That was a side trip that they got involved in.

"They had all these adventures, then they went to new Orleans. They figured they had unfinished business so they go back to the Alamo and ended up there on March the 6th as the citizens are celebrating the Alamo. There are speeches and someone reads off the list of defenders, so Davy and Georgie look at each other and Georgie says, 'I know. We're heroes and we've got to get out of here.' So they ride off over the hills. It was an intriguing story, but the Disney Studios didn't want to do it. Katzenberg was the head story guy at the time.

"Then Disney decided to do some more Davy Crockett films, so they cast a young Davy and wanted me to play some character in it. But it was too modern. It wasn't right. Even the language wasn't correct. It was like a romance novel they just put Crockett into, so I said, 'No I don't want to do this.' They did it, and as I predicted, nobody paid any attention to it.

"I thought that my story, would have been easier to do. I've had a strange relationship with the studio. They invite me to various functions and celebrations and they are nice to me, but they just couldn't put anything together with me."

The Disney produced TV movie was called, Davy Crockett: Rainbow in the Thunder (1988). Johnny Cash played the Elder Davy Crockett. Tim Dunigan played the young Davy.
