Avatar: Discover Pandora exhibit takes fans inside the Na'vi world

Posted on

The world of Pandora is officially open for business.

Avatar: Discover Pandora, an interactive exhibit based on James Cameron’s innovative 2009 sci-fi film, had it’s grand opening on Wednesday in Taipei, Taiwan, where visitors will be fully engulfed in the experience of the fictional Pandora and the culture and mythology of the Na’vi.

As showcased in first look video and photos, the 12,000-square-foot attraction features many of Pandora’s signature settings (Hallelujah Mountains, Tree of Souls) and wildlife (banshees and direhorses). The experience will offer many opportunities to learn about the aspects of Na’vi life, including their language and music.

The exhibition, which will stay in Taipei for three months before heading around the world, hails from Twentieth Century Fox, events company GES, and Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment.

While it’s been seven years since Cameron’s Academy-Award nominated film was released and became the highest-grossing film in box office history, Avatar fans’ fix will soon be filled. In addition to Discover Pandora, Disney is launching an Avatar attraction at Walt Disney World next summer, and the director is hard at work on four sequels.
