I didn't know all this information, and just wanted to share in case you didn't know either. It's a good link for all the released information concerning the ~greatly anticipated~ Avatarland. ;)

Ugh. I don't even have any desire to see the movie!!!!

This DISer hopes negotiations fall through. Not excited at all.

My two cents.

~Thanks for the update, I can't wait for Avatarland -- with James Cameron on the team -- I know it's going to be breathtaking & fabulous!!!

~I know it's not for everyone, so there's always the new Fantasyland, lol.

I did not see Avatar and have no plans to do so, but I would go on the rides and whatnot if/when the area in DAK opens.

What happens if the two planned sequels don't do so well at the box office? Do they "plan" now, and wait and see how the first of the sequels does, and if it is good enough, actually build it?

That's my concern. It doesn't seem like a very strong answer to WWofHP. Harry Potter has a canon of I don't even know how many books and movies, with a ravenous, world-wide fan-base. Avatar has one movie. They're really going to base an entire Land off of something that may or may not perform well over two sequels?!!? I would build on the recent acquisition of Star Wars. THAT has the same level of devotion and background material as HP. IMHO.

I agree and also wish they would come up with something different and scrap this project.

You mean like The Matrix? A very valid concern and the whole idea is a very risky business move from Disney IMO.

We have absolutely no desire to visit anything Avatar at Disney. WWOHP it is not. And Cameron is a total %#&% to work with.

sandgrace 01-10-2013 02:43 PM

I'd be very excited to visit Avatarland! James Cameron would not spare any detail I'm quite sure of that! Perhaps, Titanic could be included in there too it's my favorite movie and his most successful.

Melodious 01-10-2013 02:46 PM

I think Avatarland would be cool. I think AK needs some fantasy type animals and think a flying animal ride like in Avatar would be great. And Avatar fits with the lush landscaping. It's not really about the movie's story for me. It won't be like HP and I'm glad bc I don't think something like that would fit with Disney's theme

'Greatly anticipated' by whom?

Or even the Marvel Universe...who I know is still in contract with Universal and all...but much like the comics (currently under the Dark Horse publishing house) eventually it'll all come back to them. Build off of that background material and you'll be set for life.
