  • News Animal Kingdom's "Avatar Land" delayed, possibly permanently.

    "The delays carry over into Cameron's World of Avatar attraction at Disney's Animal Kingdom, which was announced around this time last year. Due to creative differences between Cameron and Disney's Imagineer development team, it seems as though we'll be waiting even longer on that project as well."

    Reported from IGN. Other Avatar movies being pushed back as well.


    Fear of the unknown.

    They are afraid of new ideas.


    You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.

      Can't say I'm too surprised. Rumors to this effect have been floating around for months from some pretty reliable sources. We can only hope that the project ends up getting canned completely and TWDC decides to spend the money on a more worthwhile addition to WDW.
      I knew if this business was ever to get anywhere, if this business was ever to grow, it could never do it by having to answer to someone unsympathetic to its possibilities, by having to answer to someone with only one thought or interest, namely profits. For my idea of how to make profits has differed greatly from those who generally control businesses such as ours. I have blind faith in the policy that quality, tempered with good judgment and showmanship, will win against all odds.

        This might be why all of the Carsland rumors last weak. maybe it has been put on the front burner to take the place of Avatar. But, Carsland isnt going to dull the influence of the potter expansion at universal if thats what they are hoping.

            I'm going to laugh so hard if Universal negotiates with Cameron.

              Probably the best rumor I've heard in a while...

                I have been hearing this for a while now. Imagineering doesn't want to work on this. Big egos, big head bumps, big mess.

                  The only news I could find about this or anything related to it is that Avatar 4 is going to be cancelled. Kinda stupid news seeing that Avatar 2 is years from coming out.

                  I too, do not find this surprising and consider it a godsend. Now let's make DAK the park it should be.

                    I'm betting Avitar 2 will be a failure.

                      YES!!! Listen if you like the film...really good for you but I just don't want to see it in a Park setting..especially Disney World just not a series of Movies I want to live on for the ages
                      Happy Halloween!!!

                        Wow. On a Disney fan site, it's announced that a massive expansion project is cancelled for WDW - we're up to 10 posts so far, and every single one of them ranges from ambivalent to celebratory.

                        Are you listening, Disney??? (Just to be clear, the message is not that you don't need to expand WDW - the message is that the Avatar project is extremely unpopular and a terrible idea.)

                          I feel the same way. Ever since they announced it, it kinda irritated me. I dont think it fits with Disney at all. The movie was cool, but nothing about it screamed "Disney take me and make me into an attraction!" I always figured Universal would do that. But yeah this doesnt upset me one bit.

                            Agreed! Carsland would be a guaranteed slam dunk and a great companion to TSMM at DHS. Probably much cheaper to build than Avatarland since design and engineering work has already been done.

                            Avatar? Meh. As much as I'm weary of DisCo relying on clones, at least Cars is an in-house property consistent with what consumers expect from the Disney brand. Now if we can just get rid of the Avengers monorail....

                              Ohh no would love to any parks get more......just not Avatar land (or Marvel land unless made for a new theme park)

                                It would've been "okay" if they planned it for Hollywood Studios, but Animal Kingdom? How does that make any sense?

                                    To be quite honest, nothing about Cars really screamed (or even does now) that "Disney take me and make me into an attraction." Cars Land is fun, but definetely not the best source material TWDC has at its disposal. Avatarland was just a bad idea from inception and Avatar 2 (if block buster sequels in recent memory are a trend) will make lots of money but not be a good movie. I say fix what you got not expand. DHS is a jumbled mess and AK is already a beautiful park so why not fix the few ugly parts of the park? Of all the parks that need help in WDW, however, EPCOT wins for being in the worst shape. Future World is falling apart, World Showcase hasn't had a pavilion/ ride addition in my lifetime, and the additions of new/ renovated restaurants does not help fix any of the issues.

                                      Wonder if it's too late to make Universal Orlando's Transformers attraction into an Avatar attraction. It would fit that technology great!!!

                                        Makes two of us. Now if it was Avatar The Last Airbender the I might be more upset.

                                        Joking aside, I would rather they now spend all that money on something else, perhaps Australia for DAK (that's if it has to stay in that parks budget).

                                        Have a feeling that wouldn't happen. I can imagine there were all sorts of exclusivity clauses in the contract - especially if it all goes sour.Besides where'd they put it? Probably have to demolish another old attraction for it.
