Eric Idle, Nigel Channing from Journey Into Imagination, Jokes About Capitalizing on Figment Popcorn Bucket Frenzy


Eric Idle, who portrays Dr. Nigel Channing in Journey to Imagination with Figment at EPCOT, recently commented on Twitter about the current popcorn bucket craze.

Idle, who famously did not remember filming his role for the ride and has never ridden it, responded to another user on Twitter about the idea of an Eric Idle popcorn bucket.

“Hm. I’m going to make one,” Idle joked, “Only one. It’ll be a one off. A million and a half dollars.”

We know he’s just kidding, but we think a popcorn bucket shaped like Dr. Channing’s face on the moon from the end of the ride might be just as popular.
