Ah, what could’ve been…
Here’s some tangible evidence of Animal Kingdom’s never-built land, Beastly Kingdom.
From the top: The original Animal Kingdom logo featuring a dragon. The large dragon’s head that decorates one of the park’s ticket booths. The dragon rock/fountain, once seen on the Discovery River ride. The smoking (and occasionally fire-breathing) cave, ALSO once glimpsed on the Discovery River ride. The Animal Kingdom’s Unicorn Lot sign. A small, plastic dragon released as a McDonald’s Happy Meal toy to promote the park’s opening in 1998. The Happy Meal box containing the aforementioned toy.

After seeing this post, I decided to make this. The “Experimental” era is usually referred to as Post-Renaissance. I imagine the Revival is going to continue through this decade. 2015 and beyond films listed are: (left to right) Zootopia, Giants, and Moana.
