Epcot to add new Country

When first created, Epcot was promised to continue to grow until it held every country in its World Showcase. But it hasn’t quite lived up to the expectations. There hasn’t been a single new national pavilion added to Epcot since Norway in 1988. Think about that. The last time a new country was added these were the top ten movies in America.

Popular Films

Rain Man
Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Big
Twins
Crocodile Dundee II
Die Hard
The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!
Beetlejuice
Dangerous Liaisons
A Fish Called Wanda
Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood

By most accounts it appears Epcot is ready to welcome a new country. But, the word isn’t exactly official yet. Rumor is that there will be a new addition of India to the mix. It has been heard that a potential Indian pavillion would feature a massive new dark ride based on The Jungle Book live-action movie.
