Fox Debuts Avatar Exhibition
Interactive attraction will allow fans to experience various elements of the James Cameron film.
Twentieth Century Fox Location Based Entertainment, in partnership with Lightstorm Entertainment and GES, has opened the touring attraction “Avatar: Discover Pandora” in Taipei, Taiwan.
The new exhibition will allow guests to experience the science and wonder of Pandora through a series of immersive and educational environments that highlight the fictional planet’s flora and fauna, as well as the culture and mythology of the Na’vi people. Visitors will also be able to learn about space travel and the history behind the discovery of Pandora in the Alpha Centauri solar system, interact with banshees, learn to operate an AMP suit and more.
“So much of what we learn about Pandora can inspire us to be more curious and thoughtful about the world around us,” says Kathy Franklin, president, franchise development, Lightstorm Entertainment. “This exhibition gives us the opportunity to take guests on a fascinating journey that we hope will give them new insights about both the rich and detailed alien world created in Avatar and the amazing Earth we all share.”
After the exhibition’s three-month stop in Taipei, GES will tour the exhibit to additional global markets.
“With great attention to detail, highly interactive touch points and a strong foundation in science, this exhibition delivers a truly memorable experience inspired by James Cameron’s remarkable film,” says Greg Lombardo, senior vice president, global live and location based entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox Location Based Entertainment. “We are thrilled to launch “Avatar: Discover Pandora” in Taiwan followed by a rollout across additional worldwide cities–leading up to the highly anticipated sequels of Avatar.”
