Disney’s ‘Avatarland’ expansion, based on the successful James Cameron film franchise, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom may in fact be in trouble as rampant rumors have speculated in recent months. Yet just as recently as December, Disney has remained adamant that everything was just fine, according to this article by the Orlando Sentinel.
It doesn’t seem to rain much in the rainforest-like environment of Avatar’s Pandora, but we’re pretty sure that if and when it does rain there, it pours. No sooner than a forum thread pop up suggesting James Cameron gave the okay to Disney to proceed with AvatarLand at Disney’s Animal Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort, that purported ‘leaked’ blueprints of some sort involving the layout of the new land’s attractions.
Ahead of any official announcement, we have learned that Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment plans to release Ghosts of the Abyss, the James Cameron documentary on the RMS Titanic, on Disney Blu-ray 3D on April 17, just a couple of days after the centennial marking of the ship’s fate.
Originally shot exclusively for IMAX 3D, the film has previously been released on DVD in 2D format, making this the first time the film will be available for 3D viewing in the home.
