Disney Parks shared a video on Instagram of the beloved character of Figment at the headquarters of Walt Disney Studios, teasing the Figment movie we first heard about over a year ago.

Watch the Instagram video below or by clicking here. The text on the video reads “POV you let your imagination run wild literally” and the caption reads “Wait, is that our imagination? Or is Figment really at Walt Disney studios?”

The Figment in the video is the same meet and greet character who now appears at EPCOT.

As announced last September, the Figment film will be produced by Seth Rogen’s Point Grey Pictures, with Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit of “Pokémon Detective Pikachu” as writers. No news about the film has been announced in the past year.

Figment History

First Look at Figment Meet and Greet Area Featured Photo

Figment debuted alongside Dreamfinder in 1983 as part of Journey into Imagination, which opened a few months after EPCOT Center’s opening. The ride demonstrated the beauty, power, and wonder of imagination to guests and was well-received, allowing Figment and Dreamfinder to become pseudo-mascots of the park.

Given EPCOT Center’s original goal of being an education-oriented experience, traditional Disney characters generally recognizable to parkgoers were not initially used in meet and greets or as walk-around attractions. Original characters created for the park were instead used in this role, with Figment and Dreamfinder being two characters that guests could interact with.

Though Journey into Imagination has changed over the years, Figment’s popularity persists, perhaps most obviously with the early 2022 frenzy in which EPCOT International Festival of the Arts popcorn buckets depicting Figment consistently sold out. While proper Figment meet and greets have been previously offered at EPCOT, his recently-opened meet and greet is the first chance guests have to interact with the beloved imagination dragon in quite some time.
