The overblown and visually orgasmic world of Avatar is coming to Walt Disney World Florida, and so far it looks fantastic.
The new section in the park will be called Pandora, after the ancient moon planet in the movie, and is set to welcome guests in the summer of 2017 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. According to DigitalSpy the chairman of Disney Parks and Resorts, Bob Chapek, said:
“I think the thing I’m most excited about right now to experience would be everything in Pandora – From the place-making to the two extraordinary attractions that will be in the land – both the Na’vi River Journey as well as Avatar Flight of Passage – these promise to set new high-watermarks for our experiential magic we give our guests.”
Live footage from Pandora has been nothing short of spectacular, with Avatar director and producer James Cameron saying, “I think I knew it was going to a pretty amazing world … I walk around with a sense of wonder myself.”
