Rumor Inside Out to Replace Journey into Imagination with Figment?

OK...

Cranium Command was NOT about emotions. It was actually about the body reacting to stress and how the brain works to keep things in functioning order so that the person can get through the day.

Also, Figment is not dead at Disney...
I wish I could give out more info, but I don't have it yet. Just know that there's hope for the future.
You have info, but you don’t...?
 
For this particular pavilion, at least at this juncture, I think you're absolutely right. While I do think the original ride had a timeless quality that could have withstood the decades had a little TLC and technological updates been performed, the time for that passed when they tore out the original ride structure. The folks who designed the original ride are long gone from the company and, even if they were to try and recreate something akin to the original, it would not be the same and would please no one. Inside Out was a great film with memorable characters and has ample creative ideas that fit perfectly with the original theme of the pavilion.
I certainly don’t agree. Inside Out was about *emotions* and the struggles of depression and growing up. The film had absolutely nothing to do with imagination or creating new things. Yes, there was the scene with Imagination Land and of course, Bing Bong. But that was supposed to represent the struggle of moving on from childhood and growing up. Imagination Land is falling apart, abandoned, and being torn down. Not to mention, Bing Bong ultimately is forgotten and fades away into the dump. So no, it doesn’t fit with the theme. If anything, it fits better in the Wonders of Life pavilion where Cranium Command once was.

And while agreed CC was not about emotions, you're description of CC just basically described Inside Out. CC inspired Inside Out. They're not quite the same but at the same time very similar. I'm disappointed they don't see it as a natural fit for Wonders of Life. Oh well.

Good to know Figment seems to be on their radar. Maybe the money allocated to it over the years for a refurb going elsewhere was a good thing. Gives Inside Out more time to lose favor as a replacement. One would hope. I don't mind Inside Out but if it goes into Imagination it's another shoe-horn, though not the biggest stretch, but Figment needs to stay and be re-imagined.

Thanks for sharing what you can.

Cranium Command is no longer appropriate for Wonder of Life pavilion since both no longer exist. They are a mere shell as is the current Imagination ride. They are distantly related. Wonders of Life will be repurposed to Space or Superheroes. Imagination will find a place in my memories.

I'd like to think they would try a Figment and Dreamfinder meet and greet somewhere to gauge whether or not there is enough draw for a brand new Imagination ride.

There’s no reason WoL needs to be the health pavilion anymore. In fact, I’d rather see an IP-free new pavilion concept than see Inside Out. But I guess that’s not all too likely.
No it definitely doesn't. But in the current IP mandated Disney Parks world, BH6 and Inside Out gave them IPs that could easily make it that again. I'm definitely curious to see what they choose to do with the WOL pavilion (and, to be fair, both could go elsewhere and still represent the same thing, just not in a singular pavilion). I agree the pavilions don't necessarily have to be what they once represented though. It's nice if they can tie it in though. I'm open for different. But we know they'll probably go with an IP.

I'll respectfully disagree with you in that my description of CC is Inside Out. IO for me was about a person's inner feelings realizing they could also have other emotions at the same time (ie, Happiness can also be sad, etc.) But I also can't deny my feelings that I thought that film was not that great.

Figment is indeed on their radar.

Glad to hear it about Figment.

Not saying they're exactly the same but the Inside Out concept could have worked in the Cranium Command theater and offer a similar experience. They're loosely connected more than I/O would be to Imagination but I guess none of it matters they're not going to do any of this, lol.
 
Okay, suggesting Inside Out works in the Wonders of Life pavilion makes no sense since both the Pavilion and Cranium Command no longer exists.
Actually, it makes perfect sense to suggest that Inside Out would have been a suitable replacement for Cranium Command. It's not going to happen though as both WOL and CC are closed. But that doesn't mean the principle of replacement "doesn't make sense".
