Epcot To Modify Wonders of Life Pavillion To Look Like Something Out of 2001 Spielberg Film “Artifical Intelligence”

After being used for mostly seasonal events over the years, Wonders of Life is finally getting a major renovation to become a year-round attraction again. The yet-to-be-named attraction will be Disney’s first “play pavilion” featuring interactive attractions.

From the press release: This new space will be devoted to playful fun and feature an innovative city that’ll come to life under the dome of the un-named pavilion previously known as Wonders of Life. The pavilion’s city will be bursting with interactive experiences, your favorite Disney characters, hands-on activities and engaging entertainment when it opens just in time for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort!

Now that all sounds interesting and we will go into how that does or does not fit into Epcot’s vision and mission at a later date. However, surely I can’t be the only one who thought of a certain Spielberg film when I saw the above artwork?

If you’ve never seen the 2001 film “Artificial Intelligence”, you’re missing out. While the story may not be for everyone, the visuals of what is known as “Rogue City” are stunning. While I have no actual proof, the concept art for this new Epcot “play pavilion” looks a lot like visuals from Rogue City.

Do I expect the new Epcot pavilion to be as uh… adult? As the city in Artificial Intelligence? No. However, I couldn’t help but point out the similarity. You can go back to your normal lives now.
