Inspired by the creatures and environments of the alien world Pandora, Fox and GES are developing the interactive attraction in consultation with the film's creator James Cameron and Lightstorm Entertainment. The exhibition will open in fall 2016 and travel worldwide.
The 10,000-square-foot immersive exhibition will treat Pandora as a real place that can be studied and visited, with scientific explorations of bioluminescence, the connectivity among Pandora’s living things and the planet's diverse flora and fauna. A unique look at the Na’vi, Pandora’s native inhabitants, will also be a key component of the attraction, which aims to help guests better understand the beauty and fragility of our own planet by showcasing the science and wonder of Pandora.
“This unprecedented global exhibition will create a truly memorable experience
exhibition will bring together immersive new storytelling and science in a tangible, engaging forum.”
Highlights of the exhibit will include a Bioluminescent Theater, where visitors can experience a Pandora night; an Amplified Mobility Platform suit that guests can try on; reproductions of Na'vi culture; and a multi-media examination of space travel from Earth to Alpha Centauri (the fictional solar system that is home to Polyphemus and its moon Pandora).
Released in 2009, James Cameron's
is the highest-grossing film of all time and will be followed by three sequels, the first of which is scheduled for late 2017.
“As we expand the
story world, we look for compelling ways to connect with our current–and future–fans," says Kathy Franklin, president, franchise development, Lightstorm Entertainment. "This exhibition is an ideal way to share new and exciting insights into life on Pandora that we hope will inspire guests during their visit and beyond.”
