James Cameron’a AVATAR™ Global Exhibition coming in 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 by 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.

GES, producer of blockbuster touring-themed attractions and world-class live events across the globe, will design, produce and tour the AVATAR exhibition to multiple global markets to be announced at a later date.

The way I grasped it, this exhibition will travel the whole world, no?  ??? Don't know where it starts, though.

Yeah...not likely to come my way.  But if the price is right, I might like to go down state to Grand Rapids or Lansing. (Never ever going near Detroit, no matter how cool this thing will be.)

I hope it does travel around like the first exhibit in Seattle did. That way everyone has a chance to see it. With this exhibition, the opening of Pandora in Orlando and the new movies coming out in a couple of years, it seems like we've already got the next few meetups planned out.  8)

There's a picture of me on Laz Alonso's phone next to James Cameron's phone number. HELL YEAH!!

I know this hasn't been commented on in a while, but since it is 2016 now, it's getting closer. I was pondering if this expo will be substantially different than the first traveling exhibit. Not a lot of info is out about it. This far down the road from the first film, I also end up wondering if there will be a lot of interest. It almost seems like the public would need to be reintroduced to Avatar ahead of time or something. So, as a thought experiment, what would the average person need to remember about Avatar for this expo to be attractive?

Personally I think that they could hit on the fact that Avatar was an experience that pulled you into Pandora, The message of the movie is increadibly important, but to help pull people back, maybe they can have an advertising campaign that focuses, on going back to that incredible world, and that the adventure is not over, or something like that maybe? The long stretch between films is tough, to bad we are not to the point yet where they could start out the expo with a very, very, small finished "clip" of the sequel that doesnt give anything away, but just raises more questions and spikes interest.
