More Disney Avatar Theme Parks Could Be on the Way


New York Times reporter Brooks Barnes tweeted that The Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger has publicly hinted at “Avatar” experiences possibly being built elsewhere:


The comment, which came from a conference wherein Iger discussed Disney’s recent decision to build its own streaming services as a Netflix competitor, also sheds light on the company’s hope for future growth with the film series, for which they hold theme park rights.


While other high-profile Disney properties, like the forthcoming “ Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge ” appear primed for global expansion, Pandora — The World of Avatar, which has been open for just 15 weeks, has already proven itself a swift success.


The stirring Avatar Flight of Passage 3D attraction, which takes guests on an exploratory journey through Pandora from atop a banshee, regularly clocks the longest wait times across Disney’s four Florida Theme Parks.


With its placement within Disney’s Animal Kingdom, a theme park that exists solely in Florida, it’s tricky to estimate where a new “Avatar” property may eventually land.
