Is Disney Trying to Tell Us Something?

Earlier this week, Figment was seen dressed in his new holiday sweated on the Journey to Imagination with Figment attraction at World Celebration. This year, fans were struck by the colors of the sweater that Figment was wearing, which is blue and white. Instead of wearing Christmas colors, red and green, Figment is wearing blue and white, which are often associated with the Jewish holiday, Hanukkah.

Thus, a conspiracy is born. Fans on the internet concocted that because of his sweater, Figment must actually be Jewish. On fan Tweets;

“Annual reminder that blue and white are not Christmas colors BUT are in fact Hanukkah colors. Figment is Jewish”

Disney is dedicated to ensuring that all guests feel represented at Disney in some way, and a huge part of that is celebrating and honoring different holiday celebrations around the world. Who knows? Perhaps Figment will be a new lesson for guests!
