In an effort to beef up their theme parks, Disney has bought exclusive global theme park rights to the mega hit movie “Avatar.”

In a new Disney Theme area, park-goers could conceivably be riding high in sky like Avatar’s ‘Na’vi’ tribe.

Avatar will become an entire ‘land’ in Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom. (Not Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios or Epcot.) Animal Kingdom already has a magical forest-like quality, but up to now hasn’t had a marquis attraction that carries the kind of cache that the film Avatar has: the film sold $2.8 billion in tickets at the global box office. The company’s Hollywood Studios might have seemed like a good fit, but doesn’t have the space needed to create an area as vast as the one that is planned. Animal Kingdom will utilize the movie’s focus around the theme of mankind’s responsibility to nature as a thread tying it to the park.

The themed area will have rides, shops restaurants, and likely some sort of entertainment. The planning has just started, and contruction won’t begin until 2013, meaning that it won’t be opened until 2016. Two Avatar sequels are already reportedly in the works, one debuting in 2014, and another in 2015, so there’s still going to be plenty of buzz surrounding the brand. (Is Cameron going for a Star Wars trilogy type of thing?)

20th Century Fox and James Cameron, the director of “Avatar,” will receive a licensing fee and a percentage of related merchandise and food and beverage sales from the themed area. That’s right. Every time someone buys a soda, James Cameron will get a little cash in his piggy bank! This guy could live on these licensing rights alone! I’m dying a little.

This Cellist’s Rendition Of The ‘Inspector Gadget’ Theme Song Is So Good!

Published

You don’t need Go-Go-Gadget-Hearing-Aids to hear how cool this cover is.

There are a few theme songs that are instantly recognizable and one of them definitely belongs to Inspector Gadget. YouTuber, Samara Ginsberg, not only shared her cello composition but also played all eight parts needed to perform the cover perfectly. The sound of eight cellos working together enriches the cartoony tune of the original, making the cover feel more appropriate for someone like James Bond. Talk about an epic mashup idea!

Folding Phones Are Now A Thing! Check Out The Samsung Galaxy Fold

It’s really happening. Could the days of mocking people with flip phones be over? But wait – there’s more. This phone as SIX cameras — three on the back, two inside, and one in the front for when it’s folded. I can’t even count how many selfies that adds up to.

It’s almost two thousand bucks. For now. But it expands from nearly 5 inches as a phone to a 7 inch tablet. Will it make me breakfast???

It sounds cool but I’m worried that eventually I’ll be too old to figure out how to use anything anymore. I’ve already stopped trying to program my favorite TV channels into cable system because it just seems to complicated.

MUST WATCH VIDEO: “How Spies Use Disguises” Is The Most Fascinating Video You’ll Watch All Day.

Published

This is CRAZY, COOL, and completely COMPELLING. The former CIA “Chief Of Disguise” (yes, that exists) shows just how sophisticated the process of disguising an agent has become.

Jonna Mendez once held that title. Here, she shows how she transformed agents’ identities with nuances both subtle and dramatic. She even shows how she once brilliantly demonstrated a lifelike mask to a former President. It turns out all the crazy stuff I saw on Scooby Doo as a kid was really possible!
