A new character named Zaggy Moondust was featured today on the Creators’ Blog, with the caption “Who is Zaggy Moondust? And what’s he got to do with Poptropica? Perhaps one day we will find out.”
The name does have that Poptropica feel to it, but it’s not one of the standard Poptropican names. It’s worth noting that it sounds like a spin on Ziggy Stardust, which was English musician David Bowie’s alter ego. Dressed like a pop/rock star, perhaps Zaggy Moondust is an idol for screaming fangirls.
The image shows both a boy and girl in the same Zaggy Moondust outfit, so which is it? However, the caption uses the pronoun “he,” which suggests that ZM is male. Perhaps it’s a costume that will be made available to both genders? Or is ZM a character with the ability to change genders?
Who do you think Zaggy Moondust is?
