This morning Disney’s Animal Kingdom had a grand dedication ceremony for Pandora – The World of Avatar, opening May 27th. Celebrities and VIPs came from across the country to be apart of this new park expansion. Among these celebs were actress Sigourney Weaver and director James Cameron.
Soon after the ceremony was over Weaver and Cameron broke away to do their own exploring. We have a great video of the two of them experiencing the newest attraction Na’vi River Journey. Watch Cameron as he points out different bioluminescent features as they travel through this Pandoran jungle.
Weaver and Cameron have a long history together, dating back to 1985 when they made the movie “Aliens”. When asked about the future of Weaver in future Avatar movies he stated “We’re good friends who’ve always worked well together, so it just feels right that she’s coming back for the ‘Avatar’ sequels.” Cameron added, “Her character of Grace Augustine, as fans know, died in the first movie, so she’s playing a different and in many ways more challenging character in the upcoming films. We’re both looking forward to this new creative challenge, the latest chapter in our long and continuing collaboration.”
