The Walt Disney Company has confirmed an entertainment ground will be created, based on the James Cameron-directed hot film about an alien world invaded by humans to exploit for resources – at the Animal Kingdom Theme Park in Florida, US.
Speaking about the park’s creation, Canadian filmmaker James said: ‘I quickly realised that their vision for this thing was far beyond what I’d imagined – and I’ve got a pretty good imagination.
‘Avatar celebrates our interaction with nature and nature’s wonder and diversity. Putting our ‘Avatar’ themed-land into Animal Kingdom is extremely exciting.’
In addition to a traditional theme park with rides, the area will also include shops and places to eat and drink.
Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Tom Staggs added: ‘Our lands are going to be complete. They will include attractions, entertainment, shops, food and beverages. They’re going to be highly developed and fully-themed.’
Construction on the site is set to start in 2013.
We can’t wait!
Since its release in 2009, Â Avatar has made $2.7 billion worldwide, and is the biggest grossing film of all time, closely followed by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
