LEGOLAND Florida has released a teaser video for its expansion for the 2013 season, hinting that it will be themed around LEGO Chima rather than Pirates as previously reported.
The park had been expected to install a Pirates Shore land similar to the existing area at LEGOLAND California, but has since moved to deny this. A photo of a pirate flag on the construction site had revived those rumors, but the latest video appears to be more consistent with a LEGO Chima theme.
While the video, embedded below, mentions a "ship", it focuses on the discovery of a mysterious energy source. This is likely to be a reference to Chi, the energy force that plays a central role in the LEGO Chima universe.
Both LEGOLAND Windsor and LEGOLAND California will show the 4D Legends of Chima movie this season, and the film is expected to make its way to LEGOLAND Florida, too. A Chima-themed expansion would be a natural extension of the brand in the park.
