Disney Bringing the Heat: “Avatar” coming to Animal Kingdom

Disney announced that it has secured the theme park rights to James Cameron’s Avatar – the number-one box office movie of all time – for a new themed land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Construction will begin by 2013 for theĀ  land, which will include multiple rides and other experiences (figure some shopping and dining, too). The debut is scheduled for 2016. Walt Disney Imagineering is in the design phase now, and James Cameron is working with them on the project.

I’d love to hear your thoughts. What would you do with Disney’s Avatar land? Will it be much of a rival to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter? Put it in a comment!
