James Cameron Reveals Details and Name of ‘Pandora: The Land of Avatar’


SlashFilm.com has reported that James Cameron (Speaking at the Los Angeles Times Hero Complex Film Festival) recently revealed the working name for the Avatar project, "Pandora: The Land of Avatar". Previously we had been referring to it as "Pandora: The World of Avatar." Additionally, Cameron revealed that there will be animatronic Na'vi and multiple attractions. The full quote is as follows:

It’s going to have floating mountains. It’s pretty cool. I’ve seen the model and the design work the Imagineering people have done is spectacular. They’ve got a quarter inch to the foot scale model of the whole park and I’ve looked at all the sight linesÂ…it’s not a park, it’s a land within the park but a land is not just a ride. There will be several rides and a number of other attractions. It’s really just a place you’re gonna wanna go and hang out. It’s gonna be gorgeous. Of course it’s gonna be gorgeous at night and they’re using every new trick, every new bit of technology that they’ve created.

The animatronics for the Na’vi characters are gonna be fantastic. For example, their early animatronics would use 12 axis of motion and I think the most they’ve ever done was 32 axis recently. I think they’re up to 64 just in the face of the Na’vi characters. So it’s gonna be remarkable. They really see it as a major, major attraction.
