Disney – Teasers – The movie “Avatar” was a big hit in 2009. Now you can visit the world of Pandora, or at least a 12 acre recreation of it in Disney World. The expansion will open this May in the Animal Kingdom park. When I was there in January of 2017 we could see that the expansion was nearly done and where the entrance will be.
Disney says “Pandora – The World of Avatar will transport guests to a visually stunning world complete with floating mountains and bioluminescent plants. Here, guests will be able to experience two excursions that will truly push adventure to the next level. First, the family-friendly Na’vi River Journey will send guests down a sacred river hidden within a bioluminescent rainforest. Their journey will end in an unforgettable encounter with a Na’vi Shaman, a figure who has a deep connection to the life force of Pandora. And second, the Avatar Flight of Passage excursion will offer the jaw-dropping experience of riding on a Banshee over the world of Pandora.”
There is more to be seen in an interview with James Cameron as he gives a preview tour.
The video above gives a little background to the mew Pandora world, though it talks mostly about Animal Kingdom in general. The new land is oriented heavily towards nature and ecology.
