Can Disney do Avatar justice?
Is Disney capable of doing an Avatar themed area? Whether you like it or not it looks like Avatar is going in Animal Kingdom sometime.... we think. The historical Disney park went no where because people were not sure if Disney could be accurate or just sugar coat all the historical things like how we took the American Indians land for example. A whole article was about that park with concept art recently of a park that never was constructed.
I know Avatar is a movie and not the vast history of the United States but can Disney bring to life the harsh conditions of Pandora? The economic, environmental, and political themes? Can it be easily accessible and adaptable to any age group? Will they sugar coat it with meet and greets and a beautiful flower and plant show? Or will Disney pull all the stops and present Pandora as a beautiful dangerous place with capitalism vs nature in a struggle waging war where actually people lose there lives? That's what the movie showed. How does Disney do it? My guess is that they are going to sugar coat the crap out of it and only show you the beauty side of it. What does everyone else think?
Sure, why not? They've been fairly successful so far in themed entertainment. There's no point in doubting WDI now.
I think they can, easily. Looking at Carsland as a recent example, I'm sure it will be an immersively themed land.
Thanks everyone for their info. Car Lands was built when I was out to Cali to see the two parks but I hear from everyone it's on par with potter. I gotta see it when I head back there again. If it can be built like that than I would have no problem shelling out my money to the mouse.
I have no idea what Avatar Land has to do with the old "Disney's America" concept. So, here's my response to the original question: NO.
Why would disney want to create a "Potter Killer?" Universal's Potter attractions bring tourists to Central Florida. A sizable portion of the visitors who come for the Potter attractions will also venture to the Disney property.
And yes, what Disney has planned for Pandora will fit into DAK's theme and will be exceptional.
^ Agreed...I just don't get the resistance to Avatar on many levels. I will concede that the story for the first movie did not break new ground for cinematic narratives, but it was an enjoyable film with absolutely stunning visuals.
Yes! Avatar is perfect place for Disney Animal Kingdom and I will enjoy and loved!
