Avatar coming to Disney World in 2017

James Cameron's 2009 feature Avatar has inspired a new land at Walt Disney World in Florida. The new "Avatar Land" is planned to open at Disney's Animal Kingdom in 2017. The land will offer new rides, entertainment, nighttime shows, shopping, dining, and presumably the chance to meet the Na'vi, the inhabitants on the planet Pandora. The announcement was made at the Tokyo D23 Expo this past weekend and comes as James Cameron is prepping work for the first Avatar sequel scheduled for release in 2016. There will be a total of three sequels. It is also expected that the land will focus on the first and second sequel and not just the original 2009 film.

Cameron and Disney Imagineers unveiled some concept art along with an explanation of the new land.

This is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard. First off, I didn't even know Disney had rights to Avatar. This is something I would expect from Universal Studios, not Disney. However, this will add a lot of stock in the attraction sparse Animal Kingdom park. Avatar Land will join Expedition Everest, Kilimanjaro Safaris, Kali River Rapids, and Dinosaur.
