I just got the second volume last year. Was Figment 3 announced sometime last year even though a release date was never revealed?I'm just wondering when the hell they announce Figment 3 or whatever the next Kingdoms book will be. It's been a few months since Tiki Room ended and no word on park comics beyond the Mission Breakout tie-in oneshot.
Journey into Imagination is why that imprint even survived long enough to do other stuff. That's proof of it's potential for a film right there.
I still think the reason behind Dreamfinder's absence is that he's still collecting sparks of imagination and he would explain why he hasn't been back in so long if the third Imagination overhaul ever happens or something like that.I'd assume and hope that there are proposals to keep the theme as well. Even if Dreamfinder doesn't came back (an enormous missed opportunity, if so) I would think they'd at least shine the spotlight brighter on Figment in any future iterations.
Which is strange because I remember hearing that people at the Disney company were surprised with how successful the Figment comics were. If a Journey Into Imagination animated film ever becomes a reality. I think the perfect directors for that film would be Byron Howard,Pete Doctor, and Tony Baxter by gaining inspiration from the comics and the original attraction. It would be a great reintroduction to the duo.I guess Figment merchandise that still seems to sell and the comics that sold well means nothing to them (and it doesn't stop them from using him to sell merch at F&G). LOL. I don't get it. That's why I'm glad they don't seem ready to touch the ride yet. Because it probably means Figment is evicted for good.
It was still open to options and changes. I believe the final choice is being further developed.Did we ever figure out when the spine is supposed to be completed? 2020? I'm just tired of seeing all that empty space in both of the big innoventions buildings.
This was started back in June and still no official announcement from DisneyImo it seems like most of the Epcot work besides RAT and MS updates has fallen behind . I just hope most of the work is done by 2021 as that'll be a busy year with whatever opens in MK's tomorrowland project as well
I wanted to make a dedicated thread to this rumor. The Energy pavilion is supposedly closing in September to make way for a ride based on Guardians of the Galaxy. Will add another Guardians ride to the Wonders of Life pavilion. Please let me know if I need to update any of my information.
- Energy is getting a GotG overhaul, green lit.
- Wonders might get a GotG phase 2, not yet green lit..
- Communicore (outside of mouse gear and starbucks, possibly club cool) will be updated/overhauled, green lit.
- Mission Space will get a refurb/update, green lit.
- There are plans for Imagination, but not green lit.
- Land will remain as is
- Seas will remain as is
- Test Track will remain as is
- Space Ship Earth will remain as is
DAK will still be a huge draw. They might want to also fast track Rat and something in the MK. It is no wonder they are building more hotels.NFL on steroids.....replace unpopular capacity with the same amount but make it super popular and do very little to help elsewhere.
I'm thinking AK will attract many more people then it does now and slow down park hopping. I think part of the crowding problems at WDW are park hoppers all heading to one park at certain times, in theory if the crowd spread out more evenly over the day and night capacity over all would go up through out WDW. I know personally I had seen all the shows at DHS so there wasn't much for me to do there. I'm not much on watching the same shows over and over again but I will ride rides over and over again. For my family DHS became a 3 ride park, hit and get out. Happens my favorite ride in all of WDW is ToT so I l aways hit DHS.DAK will still be a huge draw. They might want to also fast track Rat and something in the MK. It is no wonder they are building more hotels.
No. Things will happen quicker, they will not wait for DHS to be complete. Doesn't mean Epcot attractions will be done but they will be under way.Eventually something will come along. My guess is that we'll start seeing changes to Epcot around the time Star Wars Land and Toy Story Land are finished, seeing as how all the focus is on that currently.
There's several proposals. Use the building. Demo the building. Add an IP driven attraction.So is there any plan for the future of Wonders of Life? Is it just going to be a seasonal convention center until the end of time? It's getting kinda gross in there.
Good points about evening out the crowds at various peak times at various parks.I'm thinking AK will attract many more people then it does now and slow down park hopping. I think part of the crowding problems at WDW are park hoppers all heading to one park at certain times, in theory if the crowd spread out more evenly over the day and night capacity over all would go up through out WDW.

The one twist to all this is the US is way over do for a recession. The things I look at seem to tell a story of continued economic strength but the US is over due.
