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!
Here's Rio franchise compared to Disney Animation since 2011 (when Rio 1 came out)...

349143

Disney Animation in this time period scored much higher with audience and critics.

However, in the end, the Rio's made a larger profit in the theatrical window because they were made with a much lower budget.

However, Disney has been known to use IP in the parks that has the same mediocre scores as the Rio's, namely, TRON, e.g.

So, what happened to the rumored extra several hundred million budgeted for Brazil that was assumed to be for an E-Ticket attraction?
Don’t shoot the messenger. I hope I’m wrong.

But I know nothing of any extra several hundred million.

Me? Yes. But so did Italy. And Germany. And Japan. And the UK.
Since Iger and Chapek are pro-IP in the parks nowadays, what IP, other than Rio, could work here? IF one had to choose. Not saying it needs to go that route.

Any space for another movie theater here?

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.
Using any intellectual property anywhere will bring complaints from people here.

Jim kept saying attraction, though I don't recall if he specifically mentioned RIO or Caballeros or IP. Then the budget was inflated some 200 million as if by magic. Then nothing. No attraction at all. And what of that mystery company sponsor that was rumored? So many questions!

Was it an E? Or did I miss the sarcasm again?

So where was Jim getting his info? Or could it he was just speculating?!

And where did this rumour of the extra millions come from? I remember seeing it being discussed, but I wasn’t following the thread religiously and have no idea who brought it up. Clearly it wasn’t Martin! Could it be it all from Jim’s podcast?

From here:

I can confirm it. 450 million dollar price tag with Brazil picking up 250 of that.

I also can confirm that CoCo will be entering Mexico. Looks to be a 75 million price tag on that.
Nope. The budget suggests an attraction, despite my understanding otherwise.
