Construction Begins For "Avatar" Themed Land At Disney's Animal Kingdom

Pandora is coming to life.

Disney officials and Avatar producer Jon Landau celebrated the construction of Pandora with a ceremonial groundbreaking earlier this week.

This will be Animal Kingdom's biggest expansion, and with the new Avatar land comes a nighttime version of the Kilimanjaro Safaris.

The new theme park will include the iconic floating mountains.

As well as a nighttime jungle of bioluminescent plants that resemble the magical surroundings as seen in the movie.

There will also be an opportunity for guests to experience the thrilling adventure of riding a Banshee.

And Animal Kingdom as a whole will provide more nighttime entertainment.

Here's an overlook at the park's plans:
