Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Worldwide has sealed a deal with filmmaker James Cameron and producer Jon Landau, Fox and Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment to create themed attractions at Disney parks based on the 2009 movie.
The first themed “land” will be built at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, with construction expected to start by 2013.
The first Avatar attraction will be inside the Animal
Kingdom park. Disney said this was chosen because “with its emphasis on
living in harmony with nature, Animal Kingdom is a natural fit for the Avatar stories, which share the same philosophy.”
I know some of you may be upset that Disney is spending their time and money on an Avatar theme park when they’ve bought Marvel and could be making the world’s greatest superhero-based adventure and rides known to humanity. But all they have to do is take their Pocahontas exhibit and paint everybody blue. Boom. Done. Thanks to everybody for the tip.
