James Cameron Ponders Over Potential Updates to Avatar Flight of Passage in New Interview

In an interview with Variety promoting the release of Avatar: The Way of Water, director James Cameron had some interesting musings about potential future changes to Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

What’s Happening:

  • In the wide-ranging interview, Variety asked the Avatar creator whether Pandora – The World of Avatar might be getting a water ride to tie in with the sequel? Which admittedly is an interesting question to ask, as the land already has a water ride… They likely were asking about any potential update to Avatar Flight of Passage, which is what Cameron responded with.
  • Cameron responded: “When Bob Iger came back a couple weeks ago, I did send him an email and say, ‘You know, we can do Avatar 2 and 3 motifs and put them into the physical hardware of Avatar Flight of Passage. He liked that idea. So nothing has been decided. But, you know, we would like to carry that along and update it from time to time with things that flow back out of the new movies. Because I think there’s a good synergy between the physical base where you can go and just kind of meditate and be on Pandora and how the movies progress the story and bring in new imagery.”
  • While no updates to Pandora itself have yet been announced to tie in with Avatar: The Way of Water, there will be a new Avatar-themed Tree of Life Awakening show next door on Discovery Island.
