Watch WDI Imagineer Joe Rhode Explaining Why Pandora: The World of Avatar Fit Well in Disney's Animal Kingdom
Disney released a new WDI video about Pandora: The World of Avatar in which WDI Imagineer Joe Rohde explains why this Avatar land will fit well into Disney's Animal Kingdom.
Apparently Disney heard the many voices who, since more than five years, had doubts that Animal Kingdom was the right place for Pandora: The World of Avatar. Personally, i never had any problems with adding an Avatar land at DAK, at least on the vegetal angle of Pandora, which is quite tropical. As you'll see in the video below Joe Rhode has some good points and i agree with him.
That said, for anyone who have watched Avatar - and that's a LOT of people as the movie is still the most successful movie in cinema history - and although they remember the luminescent plants of the planet, the movie was about a story between humans and Navi's - indeed fighting to preserve their planet. There was also animals on Pandora and among them the now famous Banshees on the back of which future Pandora guests will enjoy a memorable flying ride.

Disney released a new 15 seconds commercial for Pandora : the Workd of Avatar, and this time it shows some ride footage of the Na’vi River Journey ride !!!
"Experience a mystical Pandoran river where every moment tells a story. Expeditions to Pandora begin May 27 from Disney’s Animal Kingdom."
I remind you the other commercial for Pandora's other ride "Flight of Passage", but this one was not showing the ride itself but footage from James Cameron's Avatar.
