Walt Disney World’s unique darkish journey Journey Into Creativeness is a cult Epcot staple—and that its star, Figment the purple dragon, is now getting the large display screen remedy. Deadline studies that producer Seth Rogen and Detective Pikachu writers Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit are creating the movie at Disney primarily based on the attraction.
What’s curious is that the journey itself has had three variations, so which particularly will function the idea stays to be seen. The unique 1983 journey, created by legendary Imagineers Tony Baxter and Steve Kirk, centered on a kindly Dreamfinder’s creation of Figment out of desires and concepts he catches within the sky. Figment goes on a fantastical journey to unlock the wonders of the world by means of creativeness and his personal theme tune “One Little Spark” by the Sherman Brothers.
Journey Into Creativeness was extra just lately up to date to a state of affairs utilizing wacky lab experiments, with Monty Python icon Eric Idle starring as a scientist who is kind of aggravated by Figment’s incessant hijacking of the journey to push the bounds of creativeness. (It should not have been too memorable of an expertise for the actor, who just lately forgot he was the co-star of the journey.) The attraction is sort of a Disney model of Martin Scorsese’s madcap After Hours, the place Figment serves as an orchestrator of insanity to make you query your sanity by placing your senses of sight, sound and scent by means of his Technicolor wringer. Should you’re an grownup you’ll be grateful you possibly can come across a drink at World Showcase inside strolling distance. One factor to learn about Figment that makes him so endearing but manic is that the dragon is only a full agent of chaos. I actually hope that’s nonetheless the Figment we get as a result of it’d be very on model for Rogen, Hernandez, and Samit (the latter duo are set to convey us Hugh Jackman as animated superhero Koala Man in a 2023 Hulu sequence). Solid Eric Idle as a model of the Dreamfinder for an unhinged reunion and we’re all in.
