I don't buy it. According to MickeyViews the imagineer is working on "Adopt a Porg", the interior of guardians, and Tron. I have never met someone who works on coasters, is an interior designer, and a product creator.

He/she could be ONLY an interior designer and is possibly creating the interiors for the shops/displays of "Adopt a Porg", the interior of Guardians, and the interior of the Tron queue/coaster rather than the actual attractions themselves, all which are sci-fi themed which seems to be up this person's alley.

It's possible but the designs for the adopt a porg infer that that person designed them which is why I have doubt unless they are taking pictures of other peoples work and posting it which would seem to be a big no no but what do I know.

TRON Lightcycle Power Run is supposed to be a clone. Walt Disney Imagineering is also not the small team of imagination. It just seems a bit odd that one person would be working so directly on so much of the new stuff coming to Walt Disney World and be so oblivious to/careless about rather explicit Disney policies.

Honestly, this all being legitimate would really suck for the poster. A few clicks to go from working on many interesting projects to a dead career.

Interesting that it is in all Spanish. I would assume if they were working on concept boards to share they would be in English for all to read. Unless Imagineers all speak numerous languages.

I would echo the comment that the idea of a "coaster" at Epcot is not the issue. It is where it fits and is it within the theme and spirit of the park? Im not sure GotG is a thematic fit and appears more of an excuse just to put a roller coaster in, rather than being creative and putting one in where it makes sense. I love coasters. The bigger, the faster, the better. But, lets not just say add a coaster for the sake of adding one.
If the goal was simply to "add a coaster", then why not attach a Crush's Coaster to the Seas; they've already given it a Nemo shell, and the concept of the coaster is racing through the sea with Crush. It would have added a new attraction without removing a classic (that admittedly needed a lot of updating).

Because Crush's Coaster was based off the Seas with Nemo dark ride. And because UoE needed major work and they decided not to do that.

Can someone explain to me please... what was the reasoning Disney actually changed the Figment ride to what it is now? I was very young when I went on the version of the ride with Dreamfinder and remember it faintly, but everyone on here talks about it like it was such a great ride and I remember definitely liking it. Why did they change it?
What is there now is the 3rd incarnation. When they decided to re-theme the whole building to "Honey I Shrunk the Audience", the ride was altered to serve as a "lead-in" to the "4D" movie that was in the theater. It was met with almost universal dislike. The current mish-mash was an attempt to bring Figment back into it. The original was also reportedly plagued with operational problems (the carousel one of the major ones). The original was perhaps my favorite attraction in WDW, and I cannot even ride the current version because it just depresses me too much.

Not to be rude, but this looks all staged, the entire setup looks intentionally messy.

And if it's all written in Spanish why is there an English keyboard? Who would anyone choose to work at such a messy desk?
It’s not an English keyboard. It looks like a Spanish Magic Keyboard.

I don't know about anyone else but I see Moroccan more than I do guardians in that "leaked art."

You have reference photos of the Moroccan tile work

The big piece in the middle is a study of different textiles and clearly a study of tent draping and a hung decorative rugs/tapestries

and then finally a reference of natural forces of nature.

Whatever this is, it isn't for Guardians. Unless they moved the project to Morocco

Interesting you point out the Moroccan themes. Didn't Imagineers go to Morocco to draw inspiration from its marketplaces for SW:GE? Hmm...
