New Concept Art For Avatar At Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Avatar

Walt Disney Imagineering in collaboration with filmmaker James Cameron and Lightstorm Entertainment is bringing to life the mythical world of Pandora, inspired by Cameron’s AVATAR, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. The awe-inspiring land of floating mountains, bioluminescent rainforests and soaring Banshees will become real for Disney guests to see, hear and touch. Scheduled to open in 2017, the AVATAR-inspired land will be part of the largest expansion in Disney’s Animal Kingdom history.

As part of the largest expansion in its history, Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park will be adding all-new entertainment experiences including a new after-dark spectacular centered around and above Discovery River, new nighttime entertainment including live performers on Discovery Island (pictured below) and a new night version of Kilimanjaro Safaris.

Shaping a Future Land at DisneyÕs Animal Kingdom

When I first heard of the Avatar-inspired land for Animal Kingdom, I was less than thrilled. I did like the film, but I just wasn’t sure how well this would fit in with Animal Kingdom. After hearing more about the land, I think it might be just what Animal Kingdom needs. In my opinion, Animal Kingdom has long been in need of some nighttime offerings. I think the lights of Pandora have the potential to make Animal Kingdom look amazing at night! I am also glad to see Joe Rhode planning the Avatar land. He did a great job with Animal Kingdom and I am sure he will do the same with this new land.
