Interactive attraction will allow fans to go behind the scenes of the James Cameron film.
Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products has partnered with Lightstorm Entertainment and GES to create a touring attraction called “Avatar: Discover Pandora,” that will launch in Taipei, Taiwan, Dec. 7.
The new, 12,000-square-foot exhibition will allow guests to experience the diverse creatures, environments and culture and mythology of the Na’vi people from James Cameron’s film Avatar. 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.
After the exhibition’s three-month stop in Taipei, GES, in collaboration with Lightstorm and Fox, will tour “Avatar: Discover Pandora” to additional global markets.
“Our fans around the world often tell us that they wish they could travel to Pandora, and this touring exhibition gives us a unique opportunity to bring the wonders of Pandora to them,” says Kathy Franklin, president, franchise development, Lightstorm. “This exhibition has something for everyone, from fans of the film who want to experience Pandora in a brand-new way as they await our four theatrical film sequels, to families looking for an exciting activity, or to school groups wanting to explore science through an inspiring lens.”
Additional details about the exhibition will be released in the coming months.
“In collaboration with the visionary team at Lightstorm and our technologically advanced partners at GES, we are thrilled to support ‘Avatar: Discover Pandora,’ which I am confident will be a highly entertaining exhibition that promises to engage, educate and captivate visitors around the world,” says Greg Lombardo, senior vice president, global live and location based entertainment, Fox Consumer Products.
