WDW History nut
Just to say, this isn’t something that’s happened recently. Figment has been a contender for V4 for quite a while.
This is Bob Igers Disney be prepared to be let down
I support making Dreamfinder a SEA character. One who can lead adventures with Figment in other parks outside of Florida too.
Born in 1882, he was a young inventor from a poor background studying at the Scientifica Lucida science academy in London in the year 1910.
We need them back. Fans will be super mad if they choose to replace Figment and DreamFinder with Inside Out as rumored. Disney's smart. They'll do what's best for fans, and bring these characters back to relevance to make money off of new fans, too.I am hyped! All Disney needs to do is bring back Dreamfinder and have One Little Spark blasting in the ride and it will be great!
There’s people in the company that “know we need to get V4 right”.Two things:
1) Figment without Dreamfinder is an attraction I do not want. Although I’ll take Figment over anything else.
2) I hope they get this right. I don’t want to finally get the V4 we’ve all dreamed of and have it be a point and shoot or something dumb.
Supposedly Chapek actually likes established parks IP... merchandise-able ones at least. Figment, Dreamfinder and a SEA connection might be enough to get him excited.
If that is not enough to get him excited, remind ol' Bob of this -
The Marvel comic series 'Figment' released a few years ago was the highest selling Disney branded comic book ...ever.
That should motivate him.
I've always been surprised they haven't tried to make a Figment feature film.
A Journey Into Imagination movie would translate perfectly in animated form.There was some talk about that maybe happening back during the comics' run, but nothing came of it.
I am not sure how serious Disney was considering it, but it was being discussed within certain circles.
The hope was it would not only make for a great fantasy film premise, but also resurrect the current Imagination Pavilion and drive forward a new Attraction themed to the film.
I know of at least two well known Imagineers who were really hoping the movie adaption had happened.....
