‘Avatar 2’ may struggle to be cutting edge as Disney unveils concept art for ‘World of Pandora’

The biggest blockbuster of all-time will head back into production as James Cameron will begin filming at least two sequels back-to-back. Disney is moving ahead with the Avatar inspired ‘World of Pandora’ and released the first drawing centering on the theme park spinoff. Check out the photo below.

Avatar banner “One of the biggest challenges that the Avatar director James Cameron will face in the forthcoming sequels is keeping the movie franchise at the very apex of the cutting edge. This is a particular problem for science-fiction movies,” writes UK Yahoo Movies as their recent article addresses some of the challenges for the franchise.

“With ‘Avatar’ having been so lauded for being at the cutting edge of the cinematic industry, and having depicted technology on screen which we presume is many decades away at best, then there is a huge requirement for Cameron to deliver effects and visuals on screen that reflect this, as well as incorporating new ideas which move the franchise forwards.”

Disney doesn’t seem to be worried, planning to open the first phase of Pandora in 2017, and “based on the designs we’ve seen, we believe that phase will include the “Soarin'”-style 3D movie attraction,” writes Theme Park Insider.

The spinoff into a theme park could be just what Avatar fans need to quench their appetites until the new films arrive.

“Design plans for that attraction call for a massive, five- or six-story theater building, which will top out somewhere around 80 feet. The building will include four show theaters, which will radiate from a central hub from where visitors will load into the theaters,” explains the article.

Overall Cameron may have his hands full to meet expectations for Avatar, but visitors at Disney’s Animal Kingdom certainly had a lot to look forward to.
