Disney announced in September 2011 that it is developing an Avatar-themed land in Animal Kingdom. This land will feature multiple attractions based on James Cameron's 3D film, the biggest box office movie of all time.
In October 2012, we learned that Avatar's main attraction would be a 3D movie-based ride, where visitors "fly" through scenes from Pandora. At the D23 Japan Expo in October 2013, Disney released the first concept art for ride, which will open officially May 27, 2017.
What to say, it's Soarin' on steroid, and is as much of a marvel technologically as it is visually to enjoy. The movie is a lot of fun with enough detail to stand up to multiple viewings (though good luck getting to ride more than a couple of times without standing in 2-3 hours lines). We managed 3 rides, but never got to go through the standard queue (first was at the start of the day when they run guests through the FP queue, and the other 2 rides were through the FP line), but from what I could see through the window between the 2 staging areas, it appeared to be pretty incredible.
