A Figment Movie Is On Its Way and Seth Rogen Is Involved!?
Here’s some awesome movie news that we weren’t expecting. According to a report from DEADLINE, there is a new Disney movie in the works starring the one and only Figment!
For those unfamiliar, Figment is a small purple dragon and the star of the Journey Into the Imagination with Figment attraction at EPCOT’s Imagination Pavilion at Walt Disney World.
According to DEADLINE, the film will actually be a Point Grey production of which Seth Rogen is part owner. We’re also told that Pokemon Detective Pikachu’s Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit are set to write the script.
Figment was dreamed up by Disney Imagineers back in 1983 as mascot of using your imagination. The character has a beloved fanbase and merchandise from plush dolls to popcorn buckets featuring Figment’s likeness have become sought after collector’s items!
As a matter of fact, Figment’s popularity is so constant that Disney president Josh D’Amaro announced during the D23 Expo this month that Figment will also be returning to EPCOT soon as a character meet and greet!
Though Disney and Co haven’t released too many details about the Figment film, it actually won’t be his first time on the big screen. Look closely next time you watch Pixar’s Inside Out and Toy Story 4 and see if you can find him.
It’s early days but this is a story that we will continue to follow closely. Readers are encouraged to keep checking back with us for further Figment news and updates.
