Disney appears to really have outdone themselves on their latest theme park addition, as the concept art for Avatar Land looks absolutely amazing. In addition to the concept art that was released at the first-ever D23 Expo in Japan, Disney has also released a sneak preview video with filmmaker James Cameron and Walt Disney Imagineer Joe Rohde highlighting the creative work already underway on the Avatar-inspired land coming to Disney's Animal Kingdom.
Avatar Land will feature floating mountains, bioluminescent plants and other elements of the mythical world of Pandora. “In my wildest imagination growing up, I don’t think I could have ever envisioned a day when something that I created would live inside a Disney Theme Park,” said Cameron. “This project has been a perfect collaboration from the start.”
“A world of this much imagination is pretty much flat-out impossible to build, unless you think up and innovate new ways to do it,” said Rohde. “So the project is filled with new technology, new art, new style, new material. It’s a tremendous tour de force of the innovative capacity of Walt Disney World Imagineering.”
Avatar Land is scheduled to open at Disney's Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World sometime in 2017.
