SeaWorld files trademark application for 'Yonaguni'
Written by Robert Niles
SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment on Sept. 19 filed a trademark application for "Yonaguni," which might be the name of an upcoming show in one or more of the chain's theme parks.Tweet
Here's the legalese, the catch-all description from the public filing:
"Entertainment services in the nature of an animated television series for children; production of live-action and animated entertainment shows and interactive programs for distribution via audio and visual media, and electronic means; amusement park and theme park services; educational and entertainment services rendered in or relating to theme parks, namely, live stage shows, live amusement park shows, live performances by costumed characters, and presentation of live theatrical performances; presentation of live stage shows; theater productions"
Yonaguni isn't some nonsense word, by the way. Yonaguni is the westernmost inhabited island in Japan. It's also known for the offshore Yonaguni Monument, a massive underwater rock formation.

Perhaps that's a clue as to the show's theme and/or content? Anyone hear anything from inside SeaWorld about this show? The comments await.
