How Disney partnered with AVATAR filmmakers for Pandora – The World of Avatar

In just over a month Pandora – The World of Avatar will start previewing to its first guests at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. If it seems like forever since the idea of an Avatar-land was announced by Disney CEO BOb Staggs, it has been almost 6 years, which is a long time for theme park development. Since then Walt Disney Imagineering has been working closely with Lightstorm Entertainment and Avatar producers James Cameron and Jon Landau to bring their digital vision of the planet into a fully realized real world space.

In a new video, Djuan Rivers, vice president of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, introduces a few of the creative forces behind Pandora – The World of Avatar:

I don’t know about you, but I’m even more excited to walk-through this world they created. So many new places and vistas to explore.
