This week we’re happy to share another look inside Pandora – The World of Avatar, which is currently under construction at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Our friends at Walt Disney Imagineering just shared another video on the construction of this new land, which is set to open May 27, 2017. In this video, several members of the Pandora project team explain just how important research has been in bringing Pandora – The World of Avatar to life. Culture plays a huge part in the park’s other lands, like Asia and Africa. Therefore, researching a realistic culture that would exist on Pandora has been a priority.

In addition to culture, placemaking has also extended to designing what guests will hear when they enter the new land. What should guests hear in the natural environment of Pandora?
