Update: AVATAR land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
The planet of Pandora will be touching down in Disney World.
New York Times article claims flight simulation will be part of upcoming Avatar land
The New York Times claimed that the upcoming Avatar land to be built in Disney’s Animal Kingdom will include a ride that simulates flight. This is the first public report of any remotely firm details on any of the actual rides that may be part of the land.
Apparently referencing comments made by Avatar creator James Cameron, the New York Times says, “Avatar construction is set to begin next year and open in 2015. Design details are secret, but James Cameron, who directed “Avatar” and is working on two sequels, has said part of the project will include a ride that simulates flight, will include animatronics and 3-D holographic technology.
“Our goal is to go beyond current boundaries of technical innovation and experimental storytelling,” the producer told the Guardian newspaper. “[To] give park goers the chance to see, hear and touch the world of Avatar with an unprecedented sense of reality.”
Disney CEO Bob Iger says the company is considering expanding the Avatar attraction to other Disney parks.
Meanwhile, upcoming sequels set for release in December 2014 and a year later, should keep the Avatar buzz alive while construction is under way.
The movie has grossed $2.8 billion since its release in 2009, making it the No. 1 money-making film of all time.
