Disney Confirm Their Imagineers Are Working On Avatar

Afternoon Thrill Seekers,

While everyone is losing their minds over Florida’s ill thought out Avataramendment to their Driving Licence Laws I happened across one of Disney’s blog posts entitled “Experience the magic”…

The post described what Disney has to offer including;

  • Four theme parks
  • Two water parks
  • Twenty-five resort hotels, including seven Disney Vacation Club properties
  • Five golf courses
  • ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex
  • Downtown Disney

and went on to describe what Disney are up to at the moment. The piece that most interested me was this.

AVATAR -Walt Disney Imagineers are currently in the design stage for AVATAR at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Worldwide is joining forces with visionary filmmaker James Cameron and Fox Filmed Entertainment to bring the world of AVATAR to life creating themed lands that will give Guests the opportunity to explore the mysterious universe of AVATAR first hand. With its emphasis on living in harmony with nature, Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a natural fit for the AVATAR stories, which share the same philosophy. Construction is expected begin in 2013 and project of this size typically takes approximately five years to design and build.

So construction is set to start at Animal Kingdom in 2013 and should take 5 years to complete… Exciting stuff…
