‘Pandora – The World of Avatar’ – New Footage of Na’vi River Journey Revealed

Pandora Ð The World of AVATAR will bring a variety of new experiences to Disney's Animal Kingdom, including a family-friendly attraction called NaÕvi River Journey. The adventure begins as guests set out in canoes and venture down a mysterious, sacred river hidden within the bioluminescent rainforest. The full beauty of Pandora reveals itself as the canoes pass by exotic glowing plants and amazing creatures. The journey culminates in an encounter with a NaÕvi shaman, who has a deep connection to the life force of Pandora and sends positive energy out into the forest through her music. NaÕvi River Journey will open with Pandora Ð The World of AVATAR in 2017. Disney's Animal Kingdom is one of four theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. (Disney)

When Pandora – The World of Avatar opens in Disney World’s Animal Kingdom on May 27, 2017, it’ll debut with two new rides. The first is Flight of Passage, which was showcased (without footage) in a TV commercial. The second is the Na’vi River Journey, which is a dark boat ride into the jungles of Pandora. However, a new teaser trailer has revealed a quick glimpse at the interior of the highly-anticipated attraction.

It’s nothing earth-shattering, but I’m getting the vibe we can expect a sci-fi version of Epcot’s Living with the Land with some highly lifelike Na’vi animatronics.

We’ll have to wait for an upcoming media event to learn more, but “Avatarland” is looking pretty exciting and is a much-needed expansion of Animal Kingdom, which has more or less gone neglected for many years.

Stay tuned to The Kingdom Insider for more news on Pandora – The World of Avatar as it becomes available.
