Avatar: Discover Pandora touring exhibition to launch in December
The world of Avatar is hitting the road this winter.
Avatar: Discover Pandora, a high-tech interactive exhibition inspired by James Cameron’s 2009 sci-fi blockbuster, will launch its worldwide tour Dec. 7 in Taipei, Taiwan, organizers announced Monday.
Inhabiting 12,000 square feet, the attraction will immerse visitors in Avatar‘s settings (the Hallelujah Mountains, the Tree of Souls), wildlife (banshees, direhorses, viperwolves), and science (space travel, AMP suits) — and of course the culture of the 9-foot blue humanoids known as the Na’vi.
Presented by Twentieth Century Fox, Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment, and the events company GES, Discover Pandora will run for three months in Taipei before moving on to unspecified global markets.
Much like the Avatar-themed Cirque du Soleil show Toruk, Discover Pandora will look to renew and maintain interest in Cameron’s sci-fi franchise, which has yet to produce a big-screen sequel nearly seven years after the release of the first film. Avatar remains the highest-grossing movie of all time, and several more installments are still in the works.
