The happiest place on earth is about get a whole lot happier soon.
Although we still have to wait for more than a year for “Star Wars: Episode VIII” and over 2 years for the long awaited “Avatar 2” to hit theatres, Disney has just revealed some new information and concept arts about its expansions about the upcoming Star Wars Land and Avatar Theme Park.
It has just been confirmed that Walt Disney Imagineering is currently collaborating with Lucasfilm to integrate elements from “Star Wars Episode 8” as part of the Star Tours that will impact Star Wars Land. Isn’t that exciting?
Disney also previously announced that one of the main highlights at Star Wars Land would include a full-scale version of the Millennium Falcon. This intergalactic adventure will transport guests to a “different planet” via the Millennium Falcon while roaming alongside the movie franchise’s signature species.
As for Pandora—the World of “Avatar”, Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek announced that the land of fierce blue aliens will be opening somewhere mid year 2017. There are basically 2 major attractions visitors can look forward to – the Avatar: Flight of Passage and Na’vi River Journey.
The Avatar: Flight of Passage “will allow guests to experience what it’s like to fly” over the jungles of Pandora on the back of a Mountain Banshee. The Na’vi River Journey, on the other hand, will take tourists on a boat ride through “a sacred river hidden within a bioluminescent rainforest of Pandora.
Judging from these concept arts provided by Disney, these fantastic theme parks sure look pretty promising. Now is it too early to book our annual passes?
