Disney Previews Animal Kingdom's Avatar-Themed Expansion
Disney previewed photos of its plans for the upcoming Avatar-inspired expansion to Florida’s Animal Kingdom over the weekend at Japan’s D23 Expo.
Park engineers have collaborated with James Cameron, who directed Avatar, as well as Lightstorm Entertainment to make Pandora—the fictional planet where the film is set—come alive through a series of rides and attractions.
Animal Kingdom guests will be able to experience a cruise through one of the many luminescent rain forests depicted in the fill as well as the chance to “discover what it feels like to soar into the sky riding a Banshee.”
According to a post on the Disney Parks blog, park engineers hope to complete the expansion by early 2017.
