Pop Maintenance, School, Pelican Prison, & More

Hey Adventuring Poptropicans! SD here with a few Poptropica updates. But before we get into that, I just want to give you a heads up: School has started for most of us authors, so we probably will be less active when it comes to posting. Don’t get me wrong! Everyone on the team will still try to keep you up to date as much as possible! 😉

Anyway, you may have noticed that Poptropica is currently down for maintenance. Not much was explained, so we don’t know exactly why it is down, but the Creators say they will let us know as soon as the site is back up.

In other news, the Creators also recently posted a sketch! Whatever the sneak peek is for, the project is “super-early.”

It appears to shows Oliver, from the Poptropica Comics.

Talking about sneak peeks, you may have already heard of the next Poptropica island! Most refer to it as “Pelican Rock Island” for the time being.

Thanks to Brave Tomato (for doing a ton of research on the island), we know the island is probably based on Alcatraz, which is a (now closed) famous high security prison on an island in San Francisco. When the island was first found, it was named La Isla de los Alcatraces, which means The Island of the Pelicans, so this makes perfect sense!

Fun fact: I have been on a tour of Alcatraz when visiting California! One big thing I remember: It STINKS of bird droppings.

We haven’t talked a lot about Pelican Rock Island, but we will mention it more as it develops into an actual island. For now, I will leave you with this:

Poptropica Cartoon? Paper Craft, GHDI, & More

Sorry for the, like, week of no posting guys. Getting back into my school routine was tough.

Anyway, you’ve probably already heard about this, but will Poptropica be releasing a cartoon? This was posted on Twitter a while ago:

All that was said was that the image shows a “Poptropica script read.” Most people are thinking a Poptropica cartoon is in our future. However, people have also suggested that it may be a YouTube series, audio book, or narration for SUIs. What do you think about all this speculation? Comment your opinions below!

In other news, we have many behind the scenes images. First up, an early sketch for Poptropica Comics.

All that we know is that it is a part of something coming February-ish. Next up, a Galactic Hot Dogs ad can now be found.

Go travel in the neon wiener! 😛

Okay, now remember the past paper crafts that the Creators have released? We even have one for the ATP! Anyway, he Creators have now released another paper craft! This one is Svaldalfari, the hammer from Poptropica Land.

You can click here to download it now, or go to the Poptropica Land Tour Page.

Last but not least, has your school banned Poptropica from there computers? I know my school did. 😦

But worry no more! The Creators released this three part image for a Poptropican in need that may solve this problem.

See??? Poptropica is fun and educational! Show those pictures to someone in charge at your school and see if it helps. 🙂

Arabian Nights: Lair of Thieves is now out for all and PoptropiCon: Spoiler Alert is now on android. Have fun!

Anyway, we also have some behind the scenes images to share. First up, “a paused project….

Well, it looks like a comic to promote an island, such as the Virus Hunter: Pandemic Panic series. For what island, I’m not sure.

Next up, a sneak peek that seems to be for the Poptropica Comic Island.

The Creators also shared this Poptropica Realms sneak peek (on the right).

“Just grabbed from a Poptropica Creator’s computer when she snuck out to do some shopping.”
