Disney Gives Teasers of Pandora

Avatar was both an Oscar-winning film and was directed by an Oscar-winning director, James Cameron. Avatar was released in 2009, but almost ten years later, Disney is opening Pandora, an addition to Disney’s Animal Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Pandora is the moon on which Avatar takes place.

 

With 4 sequels coming to Avatar, this movie is quickly gaining more popularity than ever. On Thursday, March 9, 2017, Good Morning America had an exclusive look into the new world of Pandora. Upon entrance there are floating mountains guests can walk under, much like the Hallelujah Mountains in the film. After entering, guests are in the Valley of Mo’ara.  It was released that there will be two new rides coming with the addition to Animal Kingdom. One ride will be a slow ride on a boat through a bioluminescent Na’vi forest, Na’vi River Journey. The other ride, Avatar Flight of Passage, allows one to ride his or her very own banshee.

 

The following day on March 10, The View interviewed James Cameron live from Animal Kingdom. Footage was shown of Whoopi Goldberg of The View walking through the Valley of Mo’ara with James Cameron. The valley is filled with both real and fake plants. At night, the fake plants glow as the bioluminescent ones do in the film.

 

The Chew was also talking about Avatar. The cast tried a signature dish available in Pandora, Lumpia. Lumpia is a pineapple and cream cheese spring roll.

 

Disney has been constructing Pandora for a few years now, and it will open to the public on May 27, 2017.
