Celebrate 20 years of Animal Kingdom with Disney Parks Blog‘s latest video of ‘Inside Disney Parks’.

Portfolio Creative Executive for Walt Disney Imagineering, Joe Rohde kicks off with a new episode of “Inside Disney Parks” with his special “Top 5 Places” at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Then go behind the scenes of the new UP! A Great Bird Adventure and our “unboxing” segment is back with a first look at a new, limited release Banshee!

The Limited Release Interactive Banshee, inspired by the moss covered wall from Pandora in Animal Kingdom. The new Banshee will be flapping its wings into the Rookery at Windtraders on April 22. This new version of the popular interactive toy will only be available for a limited time and will be packaged with a display perch and Certificate of Authenticity. Like the originals, the banshee has authentic sounds and includes three ranges of motion – mouth, head, and wings – that are controlled by hand.
