Kickstart the Progress City Primer


Judi Dench

The interweb is lighting up with rumors that the new narrator for EPCOT Center’s Spaceship Earth will be British actress Dame Judi Dench. While I was personally hoping for a secret return of Walter Cronkite, this is a more than satisfactory substitute. This is all still hearsay, of course (although strangely widely spread hearsay, unless the Dench fanboy movement is far more entrenched than I thought).

Disney has kept details on the Spaceship Earth rehab locked up tight, but a small trickle of details continue to emerge. Video screens which will allow a Horizons-like interactive finale have been installed in all the vehicles; these are at least partially on-line and on site. What might be an out-of-control rumor cascade is currently insisting that the project is ahead of schedule and will be soft opening by the second week of December. This would be a Very Good Thing considering that Team Tangaroa is going to be in situ that very week and was getting very testy about having to miss Spaceship Earth for a second consecutive visit. Get to work guys!
