Rumor Figment, well, to be replaced by Figment

Well, when your having to completely gut a pavilion, build a new show building with a larger volume than Spaceship Earth, and install a complex rollercoaster system inside with (hopefully) a lot of theming elements too, oh and throw a once-a-century pandemic on top. I'm not surprised it's taking 5 years to be built.

Remember, MMRR took 4 years and SWGE took 5, so in reality it's not a huge shocker.
If the end results in anything close to Rise in terms of experience (obviously it’s a rollercoaster and Rise isn’t) it will all be worth it.

With the EPCOT overhaul announcement that we got over 2 years ago, I’ve always wondered when Figment will finally get his time to shine once again, with maybe a new original attraction or a upgrade to the original’s concept. Do y’all think Figment will get to return with his faithful companion, Dreamfinder? Or do you think some “emotional” characters may be making a new home out of the pavilion? Let’s talk about it!

The problem is, it isn't apart of World Celebration. As a matter of fact, it's not really a part of anything right now. Look at this image:

Imagination sits akwardly between world nature and celebration.
If the posters are anything to go by, it isn’t part of nature because World Nature prints where just released and Imagination isn’t among them. I realize they are just posters but I think they would know what neighborhood each attraction is apart of.

This is neither rumor nor news.... and has been beaten to death at this point...

Once again, even Imagination's poster doesn't reference any of the neighborhoods and is quite vague about what it entails besides dreamfinders ship, the current pavilion paint scheme, and a lack of Imagination Institute references.

Hints (sort of) like this give me hope, while at the same time probably don't mean a thing. It is however promising that there hasn't been any acknowledgment of the Imagination Institute so far in any of the Epcot renovation material, merch etc... and the only references to Imagination include both Figment and usually a reference to Dreamfinder as well. I think it's pretty obvious that they're not proud of the pavilion's current state, and they are using Figment and Dreamfinder for representation, possibly because they're aware of what already has worked, and may work for them again in the future. Just a thought. If they really feel inclined to shoehorn IP into the pavilion, there are ways to include both Figment and Dreamfinder in those projects, since they're flexible in terms of where they can be used.
I mean, has Dr. Nigel Channing EVER been a particularly merchandised character? I'm guessing no, if for no other reason than because they'd have to pay Eric Idle royalty feeds...
