The spirit of Epcot has been dead for some time. I miss it but I don’t mourn it. I’m hopeful for the park but a collection of half baked misses won’t cut it. Seems like it’s not just critical to the park but critical to their presence in Orlando.

The gif overlay in the other threads also shows that the Germany pavilion has been given a photoshop-bump to the east, leaving a larger gap than in the original 1982 painting between it and Italy. So there's a chance we get another concept art on Sunday after the announcement that has Brazil plugged into that gap.

...Maybe it was never broke? Maybe it never existed? I know it goes contrary to Disney’s long confirmed plan to add consistently to the world showcase...but maybe somebody forgot to put it in the slide show? Or likely...microfiche

They really are... There’s no reason to believe imagination is being redone OTHER than they are doing a lot of stuff in future world. That doesn’t even qualify as “circumstantial evidence”

May be reading way too much into that FW based concept art but way back in WS there’s no Brazil pavilion. At least that I can see. EDIT- I see the posters now saying revealing Sunday so I'm assuming that's the artwork they just didn't want to give away early.

The aesthetic is soooooo pleasing.

That's the thing I'm laughing at the most. The hub used to have more water and more green then it does now. But now they're going back and bringing in a forest and adding fountains in the area. The entrance is basically the 82 version with more trees but no palms. While I'll wait to see the stuff in person when it's done, it really seems like a giant backpedal that's been in progress for 20+ years. I can't complain too much aside from losing symmetry. Imagine a CC West beefed up with a second (or third) floor that would be where the roof is now?

EPCOT Center was such a failure that the new Epcot is being wrapped in even more of its imagery.

Since the logos were mentioned in this thread on the first page...
