This weekend the Disney parks blog shared news and behind the scenes footage of a new entertainment addition coming to Pandora at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park.
The Pandora Utility Suit, created through a partnership between Lightstorm Entertainment, Disney Parks Live Entertainment, Michael Curry Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering will be worn by a Pandora Conservation Initiative pilot and will be used to study the wildlife, collect plant samples, survive Pandora’s terrain and to educate visitors about Pandora. Similar suits have appeared in the Avatar movie in various scenes with tasks ranging from combat situations to performing cargo duties.
A behind the scenes video showing more details was also shared.
Disney also confirmed the launch date of April 22 2018 which will coincide with the park’s 20th anniversary.
We will be sure to bring you a video on our next visit shortly after the launch date!
