Construction is officially underway on the upcoming Avatar attraction at Disney's Animal Kingdom! The Disney Parks Blog updated today with images and video from the groundbreaking ceremony, which featured blue Na'vi-scaled shovels. Check out the video in the player below and the photos in the gallery viewer at the bottom of the page!

Designed by Walt Disney Imagineering in partnership with James Cameron and Lightstorm Entertainment, the new 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."

The largest expansion in Disney's Animal Kingdom history, the attraction is set to open in 2017.
