When AVATAR first hit movie screens, there were reports of people leaving theaters with severe cases of depression, because their lives could never be as perfect as the people living on Pandora. Well now, those people may be one step closer to living out their fantasies.
Disney has officially acquired rights to AVATAR in order to create a theme park attraction for Disney World in Florida. Disney Parks Chairman Tom Staggs commented on the topic:
“We’ve just begun the design phase on our Animal Kingdom project and we expect to begin construction in 2013…From start to finish, a project of this size and scope takes about 5 years to design and build...We expect this land to be anchored by multiple attractions, entertainment, merchandise locations, restaurants and other immersive elements. Our ‘Avatar’ lands will give guests the chance to see, hear and touch the world of Pandora and we can’t wait to dive in with James Cameron and his team as we create new experiences that will delight and thrill our guests.”
Why do I have a feeling that there are going to be many new counts of homeless people around Disney World when those attractions finally open? People who just want to be close to Pandora, and sleep on benches outside the park…
