It seems like it’s been forever since Disney announced its plans to create an Avatar themed land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. They announced the plans, they broke ground, and then radio silence ensued. But now, thanks to the D23 Expo in Anaheim, we finally have some new information.

Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom (try saying that 10 times fast!) will bring to life floating mountains and bioluminescent plants that made Pandora such an incredible world. A new ride, AVATAR Flight of Passage will let guests experience what it’s like to fly with banshees.

There are no further details into the ride just yet, but I’m personally hoping for a rollercoaster type ride, with not your typical type of ride car. I think being able to lie down and soar over the attraction would be so awesome! But hey, maybe I’m just dreaming over here. We will have to wait and see what the Imagineers have in store for us.

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. (Concept art, Walt Disney Imagineering)
