This is the conceptual art for the 2016 addition of AVATAR Land to Disney's Animal Kingdom Park in Orlando, Florida. It's the perfect addition to the Animal Kingdom Park because all the plants and animals from AVATAR are way cooler than the real ones we have on earth, and who wants to be bored with those? That was me being sarcastic by the way. Oh no you didn't, girl! That was me being sassy.
Once the new area opens, park guests will be greeted by interactive landscapes that seem to come to life at every touch. There will also be a Banshee-riding attraction as well as what looks like a serene boat ride through the bioluminescent forest. Even the Animal Kingdom's massive Tree of Life will bioluminesce come sundown.
Whatever, I'm sure it'll be cool. Maybe not cool enough to steer me away from going to Universal Studios' Islands of Adventure instead, but still cool. I've always felt like Disney's Animal Kingdom was more of a kid's park anyways. If I wanted to go to a zoo on steroids I would actually go to the zoo on steroids and probably be mauled to death trying to fight all the tigers at once.
Hit the jump for several more concept art shots and a video in which James Cameron mentions he's busy working on three AVATAR sequels which did make me do a spit-take.
Thanks to Todd, who expressed his interest in living there. Dare to dream, Todd.
