Hey Thrill Seekers,
It’s no secret that Disney are looking to build an Avatar based land at Animal Kingdom, what we’ve been very short of though is actual details.
On the 28th of January Joe Rohde Disney Imagineer and Jon Landa Avatar Producer spoke to Disney cast members about the future of the land and some of the things we could expect, here’s a the video provided by BigFatPanda.com.
Here’s a quick breakdown;
The main attraction/ride will be a flying ride. As per the film riders will board “Banshee’s” we’re assuming in a similar riding position as you’d get on Manta at SeaWorld, the ride will feature 3D elements. Think Soaring meets Manta!
In the video Landau states that the land will be an attraction itself, with interactive elements. With Disney spending Billions on My Magic+ could we see some kind of link here?
Disney are going big
This is Disney’s version of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and as Rohde is quick to point out Avatar is the highest grossing film of all time and with 2 more in the pipeline I think Disney are looking for a but of that Cameron magic to rub off.
Although we’ve previously posted these pics I thought you might like to see some of the renderings again.
