A new immersive exhibit based on the world of Avatar is headed to Shanghai Disney Resort. Avatar: Explore Pandora will be arriving at Shanghai Disneyland on September 22, 2022 and stay through March 2023. The exhibit will be available from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM daily during park hours. This will give guests the chance to be completely immersed in the world of Avatar when they visit.
The exhibit came together in a collaboration of Shanghai Disney Resort, James Cameron and Jon Landau’s Lightstorm Entertainment, and Disney Location-Based Experiences. This is the first Avatar-themed touring exhibit to come to Disney Parks anywhere globally.
Avatar: Explore Pandora is arriving at Shanghai Disney Resort as the international premiere of Avatar: The Way of Water is set to hit theaters in December 2022 globally and will continue the story that started with Avatar in 2009. The original is getting a re-release in theaters.
The launch of the exhibit also coincides with the international premiere of the much-anticipated sequel Avatar: The Way of Water, which is scheduled for December 2022 globally and will extend the legendary story of this unique alien world.
Shanghai Disney Resort shared the following information about Avatar: Explore Pandora:
AVATAR: EXPLORE PANDORA combines innovative storytelling and technology into a unique walkthrough exhibition. Guests of all ages will explore the fantastical alien moon of Pandora, the culture of its inhabitants, the Na’vi, and stunning bioluminescent environments. This 1,400-square-meter exhibition features life-sized recreations of iconic landmarks from the film, most notably the Tree of Voices. Standing at a towering six meters in height, this centerpiece is a glowing recreation of the movie’s sacred place of connection containing whispers from the ancestors of the Na’vi.
High-tech interactives including the Amplified Mobility Platform (AMP) suit simulator, as well as an opportunity to be “Avatarized” are exciting touchpoints for guests. The exhibition also offers exploration of the indigenous Na’vi culture, alongside sculpts of exotic creatures.
AVATAR: EXPLORE PANDORA includes a unique shopping experience featuring limited-time Avatar souvenirs at the Tomorrowland Pavilion Shop. The store features a selection of Avatar-themed souvenirs, such as the cute Na’vi plush, toys, collectible pin, and more. Here, guests can even select and adopt their very own Banshee creature.
Starting this September, AVATAR: EXPLORE PANDORA is set to be a wonderful addition to the park and a sensational destination for fans of Avatar and guests of all ages.
