Since its opening, ‘Avatar Flight of Passage’ has been a favorite attraction at Pandora in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. With the release of ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’, the second film in the ‘Avatar’ franchise, Guests have been wondering if any updates would be coming to any attractions in Pandora, or to Animal Kingdom in general.
In a recent interview with ‘Variety’, we may have a clue at what we can look forward to at ‘Flight of Passage’. When asked in the interview if Cameron would like to see new storylines reflected at Animal Kingdom Park, Cameron had this to say:
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” [a ride in which visitors can experience flying on a banshee],’” he reveals. “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.”Variety
So ultimately, it looks like we might be seeing an update to ‘Flight of Passage’ at some point soon! What do you think? Should ‘Flight of Passage’ be updated to keep with the latest themes in the ‘Avatar’ films? What changes would you like to see with the ride? Let us know!
