Take an inside look at Pandora: The World of Avatar, coming soon to Disney’s Animal Kingdom
It’s been nearly seven years since James Cameron first introduced audiences to the world of Avatar and news regarding a return to the planet Pandora has really been picking up as of late. Last week, Cameron announced to the CinemaCon crowd that he’s about to shoot four Avatar sequels back to back. Now, courtesy of InsideTheMagic.net, we’ve got a look at what fans can expect from the Pandora: The World of Avatar attraction that will be opening its doors at Disney‘s Animal Kingdom next year. In the player below, you can watch Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek and Creative Executive Designer and Vice President Joe Rohde tease the attraction as part of their “Awaken Summer” media event.
Designed by Walt Disney Imagineering in partnership with Cameron and his Lightstorm Entertainment, the Pandora: The World of Avatar attraction is said to feature the wonders of Pandora, giving parkgoers the chance to “fly with banshees and explore a rich natural environment with mountains that float and interactive plants that glow at night.”
“I think one of the things that people loved about the movie is that they felt as if they had visited Pandora,” said James Cameron in a video about the attraction released last year. “…now, thanks to Disney’s amazing Imagineers, people are going to truly experience Pandora firsthand. From the details in the plants to the production and design, extraordinary thought and care has gone into this entire world. The teams have really created something special, and it’s not going to be like anything else.”
The World of Avatar expansion marks the largest in Disney’s Animal Kingdom history. Check back for further details on the massive attraction as they become available.
