Disney’s Avatar Animatronic First Look (Video)
It’s hard to believe that’s it’s been seven years already, but back in 2009 James Cameron’s Avatar was the biggest movie of the time. To this day it still stands as a bench mark for beautiful visual effects. Though the story was a bit on the weak side I still loved the movie and it looks even better running on a 4k TV which makes it like a brand new experience. Speaking of the Avatar experience it looks like we are getting very close to being able to experience the world of Pandora at Walt Disney World in Orlando Florida.
The brand NEW Avatar Land will be set up at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and recreate some of the magnificent environments from the movie. The plan is for this new area to be open sometime in 2017. Disney has released a first look at one of the very life like animatronics that will appear in Avatar Land. According to the description in the video this is “The reclusive Shaman of Songs, a revered member of the Na’vi people of Pandora.” I have to admit that this animatronic is a little creepy in it’s realism…Okay, a lot creepy.
The video below is short but definitely gives you a good idea of the type of realism that Disney is going for with their new Avatar Land.
