WDW News Today took to the skies to give us a glimpse of the construction progress for the new land at Disney’s Animal KingdomPandora – The World of AVATAR.

The 12-acre expansion, inspired by James Cameron’s film will feature floating mountains, a nighttime jungle of bioluminescent plants and two main attractions. The first is a flying simulator, Avatar: Flight of Passage, where guests will learn to fly with a mountain banshee and the second is the Na’vi River Journey:

The adventure begins as guests set out in canoes and venture down a mysterious, sacred river hidden within the bioluminescent rainforest. The full beauty of Pandora reveals itself as the canoes pass by exotic glowing plants and amazing creatures. The journey culminates in an encounter with a Na’vi shaman, who has a deep connection to the life force of Pandora and sends positive energy out into the forest through her music.

The journey to Pandora – The World of AVATAR will begin in 2017.
