The brain trust behind Avatar is about to launch an immersive, interactive experience that aims to take fans inside James Cameron’s extraterrestrial world. Titled Avatar: Discover Pandora (and not to be confused with Walt Disney World’s planned Pandora-themed land or Cirque du Soleil’s Avatar-based traveling show Toruk), the 12,000-square-foot exhibition comes stocked with life-sized creatures (including the soaring Banshees and vicious Viperwolf) and is set to open Dec. 7 in Taipei before embarking on a world tour.
James Cameron is responsible for the two most lucrative hits in box-office history – Avatar ($2.79 billion) and Titanic ($2.19 billion) – and not even J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.07 billion) could quite overtake them globally. As if maintaining financial supremacy over that iconic franchise weren’t enough, however, Cameron has now weighed in on the seventh installment of the Star Wars saga – and his diplomatic comments hardly sound like acclaim. In a new interview that appeared online yesterday, Cameron spoke on a wide range of topics, but it’s his thoughts on The Force Awakens that have made the most noise, because he seems to carefully word his response in order to avoid ruffling anyone’s feathers.

(Photo: Dark Horse Comics) Comics will tell “new storylines from the past, present and the future world” of the sci-fi franchise, the director teases. By Graeme McMillan The future of Pandora won’t be a story told only on screen, with Dark Horse Comics announcing a new partnership with 20th Century Fox and James Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment for a line of Avatar comic books. In a special video message played during the publisher’s Friday morning panel at New York Comic Con (see below), director Cameron promised a series of comics featuring “new storylines from the past, present and the future world of Avatar.” The announcement continues a long relationship between the Oregon-based publisher and Cameron; previously, the company has published comics spinning out of his Aliens, Terminator and The Abyss features.
While previewing its upcoming live-action film slate at the D23 fan expo, Disney dropped the blockbuster news that the company’s vaunted Imagineers were plotting an immersive Star Wars Land to cover 14 acres at both the Orlando and Anaheim outpost. Later on, however, during a separate panel focusing solely on the theme parks, we learned the studio-resort synergy will encompass far more than a cantina and Millennium Falcon simulator. In fact, it stretches beyond Star Wars to the company’s other acquired brands, Marvel and Pixar.
