We can’t get enough of these adorable Banshees that will soon be available to purchase at Pandora – The World of Avatar when it opens on May 27th. You will find these adorable birds at the Rookery inside Windtraders, Pandora’s primary merchandise location.
Disney is known for bringing stories to life from their attractions through creative and innovative product design. Banshees are an important animal on Pandora, both as an animal in the ecosystem and as a cultural symbol to the Na’vi. Banshees are a part of one of the signature attractions which makes them the perfect must-have souvenir from a visit to Pandora. These banshees are fun, interactive, and continue the excitement guests will feel when experiencing Avatar Flight of Passage.
At the Rookery, a Naturalist from Alpha Centauri Expeditions will assist guests with identifying a favorite banshee from among 10 unique styles. Each interactive banshee includes three ranges of motion – mouth, head, and wings that are controlled by hand. Guests will also hear them make authentic banshee sounds provided by Disney’s partners at Lightstorm Entertainment. The banshees bright vivid colors were inspired by the movie Avatar. Guests will determine their mountain banshee’s personality through hand movements and sound, making each banshee unique.
Guests can either display a banshee on their shoulder or cradle them in their arms. Disney will also offer a banshee perch that will be sold separately. The cost of your very own mountain banshee is $49.95. Pandora – The World of Avatar is opening May 27th at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
I can’t wait to get my hands on my very own Banshee. In fact, I’m nagging Chip to get me one when he Previews Pandora – The World of Avatar on May 12th. He hasn’t agreed yet, but comment below and maybe you can help me talk him into it!
