James Cameron and Disney World Debut New Footage of Pandora: The World of AVATAR

The first sequel to Avatar is at least two years away, but fans won’t have to wait that long to explore James Cameron‘s vision of Pandora. Next summer, Walt Disney World‘s Animal Kingdom will open Pandora: The World of Avatar to the public. And while most of the park’s Avatar attractions are still under wraps, a new Disney Parks video not only features previously unseen photos and footage, it also has some effusive praise from Cameron himself.

“I don’t even know if I can express how it feels to see something that I imagined in 1995 suddenly made physically real…using absolute cutting edge technology, stuff that’s never been applied before.” said Cameron in the video. The video also unveiled a few seconds of The Na’vi River Journey, while explaining the intricate ways that the artificial plants and the alien bioluminescence were linked together. “There’s something pretty amazing at the end of that river ride, that you’ve never seen anything like it in your life” added Cameron.

Additionally, Cameron briefly spoke about Pandora’s other major attraction: Avatar: Flight of Passage. “Riding the Ikran is a thrill,” said Cameron. “You’re gonna plunge, you’re gonna dive, you’re gonna see the world [while] flying through it.” Cameron went on to note his familiarity with the technology behind Disney World’s upcoming Avatar expansion, but added that he was extremely impressed by the work of the Disney Imagineers.

While the video didn’t show too many of the Avatar attractions that will be a part of the park, the recently revealed concept art depicted an Avatar themed trading outpost, and two restaurants.
