Walt Disney World has announced something new will be coming to the popular Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and we have all the details.
Starting April 22, a Pandora Conservation Initiative (PCI) pilot using a Pandora Utility Suit will interact with guests, share details about the land’s otherworldly landscape, and highlight the importance of preserving nature.
Perched ten feet high, a human pilot straps into the cockpit of this exo-carrier and controls its powerful, yet agile movements. The giant walking suit was designed with articulated hands and a shoulder span of more than five feet. It also bears claw marks and battle scars from a Thanator – an alpha predator on Pandora.
The new Pandora Utility Suit is inspired by the iconic Amplified Mobility Platform (AMP) suits of power armor from the epic film AVATAR.
But the Pandora Utility Suit was actually designed for restoration, while the film’s AMP suits were created for infantry missions of destruction. Its streamlined structure and technical upgrades make it the perfect tool to collect plant samples, study flora and survive Pandora’s wild terrain.
Be sure to check the Times Guide or the My Disney Experience App the day of your visit for the latest information.
This amazing Utility Suit was created in partnership between Lightstorm Entertainment, Disney Parks Live Entertainment, Michael Curry Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering.
Watch the videos below to see the suit in action, and learn more about how Disney will bring this Pandora character to life.
