The World of AVATAR
Coming in 2017
Disney in collaboration with filmmaker James Cameron and Lightstorm
Entertainment is bringing to life the mythical world of Pandora, inspired by
Cameron’s AVATAR, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. The awe-inspiring
land of floating mountains, bioluminescent rainforests and soaring Banshees
will give guests a transformational experience they will never forget.
Here's what we know so far:
There will be two major attractions in this land. Details can be found
AVATAR Flight of Passage (2017) – This E-ticket attraction, the centerpiece
of Pandora at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park, will allow guests to soar
on a Banshee over a vast alien world. The spectacular flying experience will
give guests a birds-eye view of the beauty and grandeur of the world of
Pandora on an aerial rite of passage.
Na'vi River Journey (2017) - The adventure begins as guests
set out in canoes and venture down a mysterious, sacred river hidden within
the bioluminescent rainforest. The full beauty of Pandora reveals itself as
the canoes pass by exotic glowing plants and amazing creatures. The journey
culminates in an encounter with a Na'vi shaman, who has a deep connection to
the life force of Pandora and sends positive energy out into the forest
through her music.
