Default The James Cameron's Avatar Global Exhibition - Coming late 2016

Kaltxì ma Frapo!

Here is something to brighten your day:
Quote:
GLOBAL EXPERIENCE SPECIALISTS AND TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX CONSUMER PRODUCTS ANNOUNCE THE JAMES CAMERON’S AVATAR™ GLOBAL EXHIBITION
Global Tour of Interactive Exhibition for Blockbuster Franchise Kicks Off Fall 2016

GLENDALE, CA (April 23, 2015) – Global Experience Specialists, Inc. (GES) announced today a partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products (Fox) to develop and tour an exhibition based on James Cameron's AVATAR™. The state-of-the-art global touring exhibition, which will kick off in the fall of 2016, is inspired byac the amazing creatures and environments of the world of Pandora first introduced in the record-breaking film. Fox and GES are developing the interactive attraction in consultation with James Cameron and Jon Landau’s Lightstorm Entertainment.

“This unprecedented global exhibition will create a truly memorable experience for fans,” said Jeffrey Godsick, president of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products. “Bringing the world of Pandora to life and comparing it to the wonders of our own planet, the AVATAR exhibition will bring together immersive new storytelling and science in a tangible, engaging forum.”

“We have been longtime fans of James Cameron’s visionary work and this is a unique opportunity to showcase AVATAR to fans around the world,” said Eddie Newquist, chief creative officer and executive vice president of GES. “We are thrilled to be able to provide visitors the opportunity to learn more about the wonders of Pandora through this exhibition.”

“The world of AVATAR, made possible by James Cameron’s vision and ingenious technological advancements, fits perfectly with GES’ philosophy of storytelling through art and science,” said Steve Moster, president of GES and president and CEO of Viad. “We couldn’t be more excited to present Cameron’s world of Pandora to film fans, school groups and families around the world.”

“As we expand the AVATAR story world, we look for compelling ways to connect with our current – and future – fans. This exhibition is an ideal way to share new and exciting insights into life on Pandora that we hope will inspire guests during their visit and beyond,” added Kathy Franklin, president of franchise development for Lightstorm Entertainment.

The AVATAR exhibition will include immersive, interactive displays that highlight Pandora, the alien world created by James Cameron, putting it in the context of science here on Earth. The exhibition will treat Pandora as a real place that can be studied and visited. The 10,000 square foot experience will allow for a dynamic 45-minute guest engagement offering a wide range of exciting explorations and captivating environments highlighting bioluminescence, connectivity among Pandora’s living things as well as its incredible and diverse flora and fauna. A unique look at the complexity of indigenous peoples and cultures through the lens of the Na’vi, Pandora’s native inhabitants, will be a key component of the exhibition. By showcasing the science and wonder of Pandora, the exhibition will allow guests to better understand the beauty - and fragility - of our own planet Earth.

Highlights of the 10,000-square-foot exhibition include:

• An examination of the Alpha Centauri system, home to the fictional planet Polyphemus and its moon Pandora, that offers visitors a multimedia journey into the world’s discovery and the challenges of space travel to reach it from Earth.
• A Bioluminescent Theater, where visitors experience a recreation of Pandora at night and learn about its beauty, danger and the connections among the many organisms that inhabit the moon.
• An Amplified Mobility Platform suit for guests to step inside to experience the challenge of surviving on Pandora as a human.
• Na’vi culture depicted through careful reproductions to provide an in-depth look at these humanoid inhabitants and how their clans have created unique ways of connecting with nature.
• More than a dozen hands-on interactive components that will appeal to everyone from the most avid fan to newcomers to this compelling world.

Well, there's something to add to an AvatarMeet list of things to visit together. Feel free to pass it around.

Gearing up for 2017, eh? Certainly does seem like an obvious place for a future meetup, wherever it happens to be when the time is right for one.

@EG - yeah, the Avatar wagon is beginning to roll! Certainly would be good to have a meet up at wherever it ends up being...which might not be the U.S.

@ Moonbean - awesome indeed, especially as the press release was given to us fans at the same time as the press.

I think I can hear the distant whistle of the Hype train Ikran.

I need to...go find some images to edit. I have a feeling a "Hype Ikran" gif is going to be useful in the coming months.

Yeah, it's going to come like a rain that new ends! Hehehe.

We're going to struggle to keep up...but on the other hand I don't want to know athing about the storyline of the forthcoming films until I am sat in the cinema and the curtain lifts.

It's been 14 months and I haven't heard anything about this since. Where's the new Avatar exhibit? Or the old Avatar exhibit? Or any Avatar exhibit?

I'm SO excited for this new global exhibition! I'm looking forward to hearing news on where else in the world it'll be traveling to.
