Habit Heroes at Epcot's Innoventions reopens with new story

Jan 18, 2013 in "Innoventions"

You may remember Habit Heroes opened back in February 2012 to some major criticism from those felt the story was insensitive to over-weight people. Disney promptly closed the Innoventions exhibit for a rework. Habit Heroes is now back open, and according to the Orlando Sentinel, has completely rewritten the story to be more sensitive but still delivering a healthy living message. Gone are the buff action figures (Will Power and Callie Stenics) who fought chubby animated villains including Lead Bottom and Snacker. Also gone are the super-sized human forms that were used to represent the unhealthy living, and in their place are now cartoon symbols. Take a look at the Sentinel's video below, and you can read the full article here.
