Dis­ney de­clines to com­ment on new park ru­mor

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

Dis­ney re­fused to com­ment on a ru­mor that the com­pany planned to build an­other theme park in western China, say­ing its fo­cus was on its new Shanghai re­sort, ac­cord­ing to a news­pa­per re­port.

“With re­gard to the ground­less spec­u­la­tion and ru­mor, we have no com­ment,’’ the Chongqing Morn­ing Post cited Dis­ney as say­ing.

On June 23, a ru­mor about plans for a se­cond Dis­ney theme park in Chengdu, cap­i­tal of Sichuan prov­ince, went vi­ral on­line, with two at­tached doc­u­ments al­leged to have been is­sued by Chengdu au­thor­i­ties, which later said they had never heard of the plan.

An eerily life­like ro­botic beauty dressed in tra­di­tional Chi­nese style at­tracted quite a bit of at­ten­tion at the 2016 Sum­mer Davos Fo­rum in Tian­jin. The ro­bot, named Jia Jia, is the same size as a real per­son. It has del­i­cate facial fea­tures and in­tri­cate de­tails.
