Reality TV: Wild Safari Island, Sneak Peeks, Social Media

A sneak peek into the safari

What’s up, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here with some incredible news!

Another sneak peek for the upcoming island has been released in the movie theater on Home Island for our enjoyment. You heard that right — Poptropica just dropped a thirteen-second video clip of the highly-anticipated zoological adventure, and it’s pretty great! Don’t believe me? See for yourself:

In the snippet, we can see a giraffe (from the previous sneak peek), a jumpy camera crew member, and most notably, a large tree with various markings on it. I wonder if those will have any significance in the island at all. I’m guessing not, but hey, you never know. 😛

(Oh yeah, HUGE detail: if you hover over the video with your cursor, you can see in the upper left hand corner that the video is titled “Reality TV Sneak Peek” — so that pretty much confirms all the speculation about this being a sequel to the Reality TV of nearly a decade ago!)

And over on Instagram, Blue Tooth has been teasing us about how you might just find the upcoming island in alien territory…

Another thing worth mentioning is this silly little clip of a Zomberry dancing in the Game Show Island lounge, also new in the theater. Check it out:

Looks like this guy has had a few too many blueberry smoothies from the Berry Delicious Smoothie Shop, am I right?

So what do you think about all of this? I’m a little shocked (and majorly happy!) at the fact that the creators are giving out sneak peeks again; it just feels a lot like old times.

That’s it for now, folks. Don’t forget to vote in this year’s Poppies Awards before the 24th and make sure to stay tuned for our continuing yearbook series popping in each and every week.

Thank you all for reading and I’ll talk to you guys in the next one. Pop on!

Reality TV: Wild Safari Island, Sneak Peeks

Hippopotamus on an isthmus

Hey Poptropicans: we’re less than two weeks away from a new island, according to the Pop Creators’ latest Instagram post!

It was only last month that a new island was announced, and even more recently that we saw some sneak peeks, but Poptropica is back with another set of preview images, this time featuring a hippo, campfire, and giraffe!

Based on sneak peeks we’ve seen, this next island will be an adventure filled with safari animals and a film crew — and what’s more, according to a little intel from Poptropica glitcher idk, it’ll be a sequel to Reality TV Island, first launched nearly ten years ago!

Poptropica has already confirmed that the island will be on Poptropica Original. And, if the past is any indicator, it is likely that members will get early access to this island, while non-members may have to wait for a period of time before the island is released to all. Consider treating yourself to a membership to get first dibs on Poptropica’s first island in about 17 months!

July’s a big month here on the PHB as well, with our annual Poppies event. Have you made your award nominations yet? Deadline is Friday! 🏆

New island and member gifts premiering this July

Hey, Poptropicans! This is Gentle Dolphin here with the latest Poptropica news!

Last week, the Creators announced that a new island is on its way, and now they decided to share two more behind-the-scenes drawings on Instagram.

The first picture shows three primates holding various objects: a monkey with a microphone, a chimp with a camera, and an orangutan with a drum stick. The second photo shows two Poptropicans who seem to be part of a film crew, since they have a microphone and a camera (which look similar to the ones owned by the primates from the first picture).

Fans on Instagram are already speculating what this new island will be about; some notable theories include wildlife documentaries and animal transformations. A couple people have joked about this island possibly being a sequel to a previous island, proposing titles such as “Monkey Wrench 2: Electric Boogaloo” and “Back Lot Island 2: Monkey Business”. Funny thing is, they may not be far off with the sequel idea…

Poptropica glitcher idk dug into some files and found that the island is looking like it will be a second season of Reality TV Island.

RTV Hippie

It’d be pretty cool to see a follow-up to another classic island (Greek Sea Odyssey, anyone?), but we’d certainly appreciate the Creators putting old school islands (including Reality TV Island) back on the maps of newer players. (If you aren’t able to access older islands like RTV, try updating Flash and/or playing on a different web browser or computer.)

Blue Tooth also took to Instagram to answer a couple questions regarding the island’s release. In a post about the Poptropica app, she answered a fan’s question by stating that the island will be released on desktop and mobile at the same time. Also, in a post about membership, she mentioned that the island will be coming later this month! 


Speaking of membership, July’s member gifts are making a splash with some beach-themed items: a unicorn floatie, a surfer outfit, and a shark hat. Active members will automatically receive these gifts any time they log in during the month of July, so act fast!

July is looking to be a great month for members. Not only do members get exclusive monthly member gifts, but they also get early access to brand new islands! If you’re interested in getting these cool perks and more, look into purchasing a membership.

That’s all for now! What do you think this upcoming island will be about? What do you think of these member gifts? Leave your thoughts in the comments below! Stay tuned to the Poptropica Help Blog for more Pop news, and be on the lookout for upcoming events here on the PHB. 😉

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!
