I never really cared much about the movie Avatar, but after visiting Disney's new Pandora World I'm filled with the urge to adopt this baby banshee and spend all my money on merchandising.
How did this happen?
After all, James Cameron 2009 sci-fi blockbuster was so long ago, but Disney found a way to breed new life and magic into this universe.
A land inside Florida's Animal Kingdom theme park.
The goal is to envelop you in the native Navi culture.
First off, when you travel to another star system, you better eat some funky looking alien food.
The Pandoran twist on a cheeseburger comes packed in a soft bao bun with little gummyish boba balls sprinkled on the save.
It kind of tastes like it.
It's a little cheeseburgery In a world of blue people naturally there will be blue desserts, and apparently the Navi know how to party because there's plenty of colorful booze.
See, if you're afraid to ride the banshee, this can give you a little bit of courage.
All of the Disney employees here are trained to speak in the native Navi tongue, and if you're wondering what they're saying about you, just pick up an electronic translator for $20.
Stick in the card and hear the pronunciation.
I love it.
[UNKNOWN] There are 90 cards to collect with bonus packs sold separately.
It's easier than cling on.
For $75 get your face scan to make yourself into your own navi action figure.
And for an extra charge, there are plenty of accessories to jazz up that loin cloth.
But money is no object when you're nerding out.
Afterall, the only way to truly honor the ancient Navi culture is to take some of it home.
I want them all.
