The movie will be produced by Seth Rogen’s Point Grey Pictures, with “Pokémon Detective Pikachu”‘s Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit as writers.
Figment was introduced to the world in 1983 as part of the EPCOT attraction Journey Into Imagination, and has since gained a cult-like following as a fan-favorite character. The current-day iteration of that attraction even features Figment in the name: “Journey Into Imagination with Figment.”
Figment represents imagination and the endless possibilities therein. He is so beloved, that even as he nears forty years old, Figment related merchandise is incredibly popular. Earlier this year, guests waited seven hours in line to buy a Figment popcorn bucket at EPCOT International Festival of the Arts.
In 2023, a Figment meet and greet will be coming to EPCOT for a limited time. Figment is even featured on much of the merchandise that will be released soon as a celebration of EPCOT’s 40th Anniversary.
While he has never been the subject of a feature film, Figment has seen the silver screen in cameo roles. He can be spotted in “Inside Out” and “Toy Story 4.”
