    Question WDW Everest Yeti Footage on Travel Channel?

    Tonight on the Travel Channel, they were doing a behind the scenes tour of Disney's Animal Kingdom. At the tail end of the documentary, they talked about the 'future of Animal Kingdom' and there was a brief 3 second shot of computer animation for a ride element that featured a large creature looking like it was attacking a coaster track in front of it.
    I think this may be the Yeti from Expedition Everest. It was a rough computer rendering but it looked cool. If this is supposed to represent the yeti AA, it's going to be HUGE!
    Has anyone seen this?
    If not, I'd take a look at your TV listings to see if this is on where you are. I'm on the East Coast and it was on at 5pm.
    I wished I had taped it...
    The Disney Geek in me got excited!


    Here's the listing for the show on their website:

    TRV — Disney's Animal Kingdom
    Disney's Animal Kingdom

    Go behind the scenes for a tour of Disney's most ambitious theme park. Discover the challenges involved in combining thrill rides and live animals, and find out the secret behind Disney's largest audio animatronic figures.

    i dont think any of them are new. have seen animal kingdom's twice now. heck even the one they do for the cruiseline still has matt as the head. they definitely need to update them. I enjoyed the one they did on the holidays, but that was either from 2004 or 2003 I think.

    The one I saw was produced in 2002, but they did talk about future attractions and then showed the clip. I can't think of anything else it might be...

    This makes me wonder two things:
    1. Why would they show that while they were talking about the future of DAK?
    2. Is Expedition Everest just Journey to the Center of the Earth revamped?

    Well I think that was actually part of the spark of the rumors that said JTTCE was coming to AK after Everest. Why show it? Can't tell you.

    No they are very dissimilar. JTTCE is based off Test Track. Everest is a coaster.
