First announced back in 2011, Disney and director James Cameron have finally given the world a glimpse of the ambitious "Avatar Land" theme park set for construction in 2014.
"In my wildest imagination growing up, I don't think I could have ever envisioned the day where something I created would live inside a Disney theme park," Cameron said in a video shown to D23 Expo attendees. "This project has been a perfect collaboration from the start. We share resources, digital assets and the talents of some the world's most creative designers from both our companies."
The concept renders released show some of the attractions that will be available to visitors - including a boat ride through the jungles of Pandora, waterfalls pouring over what appear to be the film's famous floating mountains, and plenty of bioluminescent foliage after sunset. Of course, the main attraction will likely be the giant (and visually impressive) "Tree of Souls."
"Avatar Land" is currently slated for a 2017 opening.
