Could Rio possibly be the main E-Ticket attraction of the Brazil Pavilion?

Well, Disney has Fox’s IPs now, and Rio seems to be good IP to use at the parks.

Go ahead and start a conversation down below!
Using a Fox property in Epcot will bring complaints from many people here. However, it would also bring in profits from the Fox purchase. Disney needs to show the stockholders the value of Fox assets in all their Divisions and Rio can help. Disney needs to start making money on Fox right away.

Would seem odd for Disney to start pushing the mildly successful (and, apparently, dead) Rio franchise when they've judged the more commercially successful and critically well-received Coco not worthy of an attraction.

I'd be surprised to see m/any of the Blue Sky films incorporated into the parks as if they were Disney films. More likely Disney will see them as content for their streaming platforms, cable channels, and perhaps blue-rays and DVDs. They are overflowing with more commercially viable properties that they largely ignore when it comes to the theme parks and merchandising as it is.

I personally would not be a huge fan of Rio being the Brazil attraction, but I think it could work if they gave it a generous budget and didn't make it a forgettable ride. It could also make for some nice scenery and would certainly be something that families would enjoy.

No matter what, I believe Brazil will need an attraction. If Disney builds Brazil with no ride I think a lot of people would be complaining that they spent the money to build a new pavilion only for it to be just shops and a restaurant. I realize that there have been nations built in the past without a ride, but nowadays Disney would be expected to include a ride of some sort in a brand new pavilion so that people have a reason to visit.

If there is anything Disney would be using Fox stuff for theme parks right away, Marvel would make the most sense. I know WDW can't have the Marvel IPS Fox had, but X-Men is something Disney can do Meet and Greets, for all Disney theme parks outside of Florida. I know X-Men and Fantastic Four needs to be rebooted.

I thought I read somewhere that the Fox film assets were more for streaming platform robustness, aka. don't expect to see much, if any, of the Fox movie IP inside a Disney theme park anytime soon.

Count me in the crowd who don't like "rumor" threads where someone just throws something out there and calls it "a rumor". :mad: And since someone with much knowledge has said, "There's currently no attraction for Brazil", this thread should go the way of the dodo.

None of those things have anything to do with Fox. Fox never had the THEME PARK rights to the X-Men. They had the movie rights. The Fox acquisition has absolutely zero to do with theme park Marvel rights in any way whatsoever.

It's exactly like thinking that Disney would count Anastasia to be a part of the Disney Princesses Line...It's not gonna happen..
