So rumors of theses two characters have been floating around the Studios for awhile, but they now appear to be true.

Prince Dastan (Prince of Persia) will be appearing for meet n greets starting in May, around the time the movie comes out.

Lotso (
Spoiler
) will also be coming out for meet n greets this summer. (TS3 is out in June) For size comparison Lotso will be about the size of Big Al.

Can't wait for these. Anytime there are new characters, I love it; for the most part.

Are the Club Penguin characters still around anywhere? Last time we were there I did not see them, but spent most of the time avoiding the runners.

Unfortunately, the Club Penguin characters only appeared for a few weeks last spring.

I was thinking that too. Seems like a spot they'd use for something like that.

The UP characters will be moving to Animal Kingdom starting in early May. Their current location at Studios will be taken by Lotso the bear from Toy Story 3.

That actually makes sense to me. He worked at a zoo, went through the jungle... adventure is out there! Though a spot in Pixar place would work a bit better I think.

I dont think AK is the perfect spot, but then again, there really isn't one so I guess all the "adventure is out there" stuff makes some sense for AK. Glad they are moving them out and not retiring them as they've done with other characters once their run at Magic of Disney Animation was over.

well not so much as moving Up is the weird idea, but why move a Toy Story character to Animation, when they have a whole huge eet and Greet area for Toy Story characters already...

Three reasons Lotso will probably be in Animation.

1. Lack of room in Pixar. There's not enough room in the M&G area to add Lotso and keep Buzz and Woody and they are to popular to cut.

2. Theme. The M&G area in Pixar is themed to Andy's room in TS2. Lotso would not fit in.

3. Traditionally new characters go to Animation for M&Gs. Chicken Little, Meet the Robinsons, Ratatouille, Bolt, Wall-E (sort of), Up.

There are many themed backdrops, so i think they could replace one with a more TS3 theme, and have Lotso as well as Buzz and Woody. I think the space at Animation could be used for another character is all

Even so, the break room is simply to small to handle another character. It's not that it wouldn't be nice or make sense to have Lotso there, it just does not seem logistically feasible.

I understand they can't have Lotso with Woody and Buzz, but I really think a lot of visitors will pass him up this way.
With the Bolt and Up Meet and Greets, it was always the whole gang. Now its just gonna be one pink teddy-bear on its own.
I hope they'll include other TS3 characters with him at least.

I rode the ToT for the first time (I was absolutely petrified, as I am NOT a thrill ride person) but it was sooo worth it ;)<br />I also love the Citizens of Hollywood, and it feels so cool to see a site where other people love them and know who they are!<br />I hope that I will be a good part of the community here at Studios Central!<br /><br />~ Pirka

Heck yes, Lotso! I remember the first time I saw him from the Up trailer on all the Pixar rumors sites I was psyched because he's the first real 'plushie' Toy Story character! ...and, I must admit, I have a thing for stuffed animals. Especially ones that might be [spoiler from above].

Hopefully he's still around when I get to go to WDW again in October!
