Five new Avatar theme park posters suggest you make the planet Pandora your next vacation destination
Construction officially began in early 2014 on the upcoming Avatar theme park attraction at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and now, thanks to a series of posters on display at this year’s D23 Expo, you can start to consider making the planet Pandora your next vacation destination. Check out all five Avatar theme park posters in the gallery viewer below!
Designed by Walt Disney Imagineering in partnership with Cameron and his 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.”
“I think one of the things that people loved about the movie is that they felt as if they had visited Pandora,” said James Cameron in a video about the attraction released earlier this year. “…now, thanks to Disney’s amazing Imagineers, people are going to truly experience Pandora firsthand. From the details in the plants to the production and design, extraordinary thought and care has gone into this entire world. The teams have really created something special, and it’s not going to be like anything else.”
The Avatar expansion marks the largest in Disney’s Animal Kingdom history and should open to public shortly before the release of Cameron’s much-anticipated Avatar 2. The most recent reports suggest that Avatar 2 will arrive in December 2017 and will be the first of three sequels that will shoot back to back.
The D23 Expo continues to run through this Sunday, August 14 and ComingSoon.net is on the scene for the entire event. Check back for updates straight from the Anaheim Convention center.
