Disney has graced us with a new photo of what we can expect the World of Avatar to look like.

Disney is saying that this is the most dynamic and collaborative project they have ever worked on, with Walt Disney Imagineer Joe Rohde heading the project and the folks over at Lightstorm Entertainment being a huge part in the creation of the World of Avatar.

 
Jim Landau said via the Disney Parks Blog that “one of the things that people loved about the movie is that they felt as if they had visited Pandora… now, thanks to Disney’s amazing Imagineers, people are going to truly experience Pandora firsthand. From the details in the plants to the production and design, extraordinary thought and care has gone into this entire world. The teams have really created something special, and it’s not going to be like anything else.”

Disney even mentions the fact that guests will have the opportunity to ride on the back of one of the giant banshee creatures (pictured above), possibly hinting at the new attraction within World of Avatar.

The video shows off the incredible bioluminescent plants that will be featured in the World of Avatar and some impressive technology that will interact with your footsteps.  View the video here.

The World of Avatar is scheduled to open at Animal Kingdom in 2017.
