Theory: 'Return of the Alphas' video is related to a promised questing feature

Hello everyone!

So, anyway, today, I was looking on TDE when I found this new video:

Watch it.

Notice anything... strange?

Now take a look at these posts that I found while researching my theory:

Also, I have a little thing for jamaasian discussion today. When you first join Animal Jam you meet the spirit of Liza and she says this to you -
Well, there appears to be two big lies in that statement. One, we never learn about Mira, and two, we don't have any travels. When I say travels, I'm actually referring to journeys or quests, but not like the Journey Book we know today. I found this interesting clip of an old article, click here to read the whole thing.
Isn't that strange? This appears to be AJHQ's original goal for Jamaa, they were going to take the road less traveled by, but instead lost focus and took the well worn road of ease and profit. During Animal Jam's beta there happened to be a book much like our Journey Book, as well as the achievements, trophy, both of which seemed to be coming later in the game.
Instead Achievements came but the book disappeared for a long time. It came back to Jamaa as the Journey Book.
I feel that Animal Jam has really lost it's natural goal since beta. What do you think the creators intended with that first book? What would the quests have been like? Which book would you rather have in Jamaa? I hope you have some ideas!
With Animal Jam now in full swing, the world of Jamaa is now and always will be improving and growing. Shamans and explorers are always searching for new lands in Jamaa, and each land they discover will always be a unique adventure! Minigames, den items, accessories, quests, den designs, and achievements are constantly being added to Animal Jam, as well as National Geographic facts, videos, and content. All this ensures children always have a world of fun—and learning—right at their fingertips! Who knows what adventures await in the land of Jamaa? Come play National Geographic Animal Jam and find out!
A great post on the Animal Jam Blog.
One thing get's me wondering, though, about the part with the quests.
I never ever knew we were able to do quests!
Maybe later, you will see a post about them!
Am I the only person that finds possible similarities between these things?
For further proof, let's look at the final scene:
[Liza speaking to the animals at the campfire] I stayed to protect Jamaa while the other Alphas tracked the fleeing Phantoms.
[Zoom shot to all of the Alphas] Now they have returned!
And your adventure is about to begin!
[Shot of Jamaa Township zoomed out - vines move in slowly to frame the image. As the image fades out, the eyes of Phantoms hidden in the vines open, and then everything fades to black]
Take a look at that last scene. Phantoms waking up in the vines? Liza finally giving us some actual Lore information? I think that's nearly enough proof that there could be quests coming!
And if that still isn't enough for you, the shot of Jamaa Township is viewing it from the south - as if the camera was in an undiscovered area.
If that doesn't smell like 'questing feature' to you, I don't know what does. Since 'Return of the Alphas' was released now... I wouldn't be surprised if AJ HQ gives us a New Years gift by releasing quests!
Wouldn't that be sweet? :D
Bye for now!
