James Cameron (“Avatar”) was spotted at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom recently taking a tour around the park that will soon host “Avatar” Land! Joining James at the park was his Lightstorm Entertainment partner Jon Landau and Disney Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Tom Staggs and Disney Imagineer Joe Rohde.
Here’s what James told the Disney Parks Blog about the trip:
Getting the chance to roll up my sleeves and explore Disney’s Animal Kingdom from the inside out was a phenomenal experience,. As I walked through the park, I kept imagining Pandora coming to life all around me and found my mind racing with all the possibilities of what we will be able to create in the years ahead. Disney’s Animal Kingdom is truly a remarkable place and I can’t think of a better home for our first AVATAR experience.
Construction for the “Avatar” Land at Animal Kingdom is expected to begin by 2013. Exciting!
