Is Earth Day 2017 the debut of The World Of Pandora ? Or at least what they are shooting for?

In the few instances I've seen Joe Rohde in a fan setting he's been engaging and straight forward. As far as I can tell he's the last person from the company to go on record about the Yeti when at the 2013 D23 Expo he said that he vows to fix it.

Will saying the word "Yeti" when meeting Joe be considered offensive?

...along with celebrating cupcakes for purchase at Kusafiri Coffee Shop in Africa Of course...:rolleyes: This insistence that "special event = cupcakes" is rather amusing.

This line needs a little editing Steve : "Wristbands for the meet all be distributed with a book purchase at Discovery Trading Company."
