An Avatar theme park experience heading to the Disneyland resort will expand upon the cinematic universe created by filmmaker James Cameron in a series of blockbuster films.
Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that an “exciting Avatar experience” will be coming to the Disneyland resort following the success of “Avatar: The Way of Water” in theaters and the Pandora: The World of Avatar themed land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Florida.
Iger announced the new Avatar experience during Disney’s quarterly earnings call on Wednesday, Feb. 8.
The Pandora — World of Avatar themed land that opened in 2017 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom recreates the floating Hallelujah Mountains from the blockbuster film and takes visitors on a ride on a dragon-like mountain banshee.
The 2022 film “Avatar: The Way of Water” just became the fourth highest-grossing film of all-time with $2.2 billion at the global box office. The original 2009 “Avatar” remains atop the all-time box office list with a $2.9 billion lifetime gross, according to Box Office Mojo.
