    In an article today from WDWMagic which was citing a story from IGN, it seems that the Avatarland project at WDW is being delayed for now, citing "creative differences between James Cameron and Walt Disney Imagineering,".

    Exactly. It's never going to actually get built.

    That is what I am hoping for. I really do not see how that fits in with Disney. There are so many awesome movies they could do a lot with, why pick something like that anyway? Now, the cartoon Avatar the last Airbender...... :happytv: Just kidding, but really.......

    I agree it was the dumbest idea ever. I hope the whole idea will be scrapped.

    Oh thank God it's over! I would've HATED avatar land! I think they need to add more countries to Epcot or some more countries to animal kingdom! Like Australia and south American countries! And maybe Russia or something

    Does this mean FOTLK might be open longer? The rumor was it would be closing to make way for the new development.

    I've said this before:

    Disney doesn't cancel projects. They just ignore them until everyone forgets about them.

    And just became more plausible if this report is true, since some capital would likely free up.

    I don't understand why everyone thinks Avatarland is such a dumb idea :confused3 I'm not a fan of the movie myself but I think it fits in well with Disneys ideas of conservation and being less selfish about our planet, its a different spin on the obvious. Just my opinion. That said though, I'm not complaining about the delay!
