 Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Worldwide recently announced plans to build an Avatar-themed addition to Walt Disney World in Orlando, within the Animal Kingdom park. Construction is expected to begin by 2013. "Avatar created a world which audiences can discover again and again," said James Cameron, the film's director, in a statement. "Now, through this incredible partnership with Disney, we'll be able to bring Pandora to life like never before." The agreement between Disney and Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment and Fox gives Disney exclusive global theme park rights to the Avatar franchise. Two new Avatar films are in development.
