    Animal Kingdom's "Avatar Land" delayed, possibly permanently.

    "The delays carry over into Cameron's World of Avatar attraction at Disney's Animal Kingdom, which was announced around this time last year. Due to creative differences between Cameron and Disney's Imagineer development team, it seems as though we'll be waiting even longer on that project as well."

    Reported from IGN. Other Avatar movies being pushed back as well.


    Fear of the unknown.

    They are afraid of new ideas.

    They are loaded with prejudices, not based upon any reality, but based on… if something is new, I reject it immediately because it’s frightening to me. What they do instead is just stay with the familiar.
    You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.

    Can't say I'm too surprised. Rumors to this effect have been floating around for months from some pretty reliable sources. We can only hope that the project ends up getting canned completely and TWDC decides to spend the money on a more worthwhile addition to WDW.
    I knew if this business was ever to get anywhere, if this business was ever to grow, it could never do it by having to answer to someone unsympathetic to its possibilities, by having to answer to someone with only one thought or interest, namely profits. For my idea of how to make profits has differed greatly from those who generally control businesses such as ours. I have blind faith in the policy that quality, tempered with good judgment and showmanship, will win against all odds.

    This might be why all of the Carsland rumors last weak. maybe it has been put on the front burner to take the place of Avatar. But, Carsland isnt going to dull the influence of the potter expansion at universal if thats what they are hoping.

    It bothers me when people selectively edit quotes to support whatever point they are trying to prove.

    I'm going to laugh so hard if Universal negotiates with Cameron.

    Probably the best rumor I've heard in a while...

    HA HA HA....

    but again this Avatarland Canceled?

    I have been hearing this for a while now. Imagineering doesn't want to work on this. Big egos, big head bumps, big mess.

    The only news I could find about this or anything related to it is that Avatar 4 is going to be cancelled. Kinda stupid news seeing that Avatar 2 is years from coming out.

    I too, do not find this surprising and consider it a godsend. Now let's make DAK the park it should be.

    I'm betting Avitar 2 will be a failure.

    Wow. On a Disney fan site, it's announced that a massive expansion project is cancelled for WDW - we're up to 10 posts so far, and every single one of them ranges from ambivalent to celebratory.

    Are you listening, Disney??? (Just to be clear, the message is not that you don't need to expand WDW - the message is that the Avatar project is extremely unpopular and a terrible idea.)

    I feel the same way. Ever since they announced it, it kinda irritated me. I dont think it fits with Disney at all. The movie was cool, but nothing about it screamed "Disney take me and make me into an attraction!" I always figured Universal would do that. But yeah this doesnt upset me one bit.

    Agreed! Carsland would be a guaranteed slam dunk and a great companion to TSMM at DHS. Probably much cheaper to build than Avatarland since design and engineering work has already been done.

    Avatar? Meh. As much as I'm weary of DisCo relying on clones, at least Cars is an in-house property consistent with what consumers expect from the Disney brand. Now if we can just get rid of the Avengers monorail....

    Ohh no would love to any parks get more......just not Avatar land (or Marvel land unless made for a new theme park)
