Disney Reveal New Infos and Rendering for Pandora – The World of Avatar “Na’vi River Journey” Boat Ride
When Disney announced Pandora – The World of Avatar for Animal Kingdom a beautiful rendering showing a boat ride was released, and then the ride became a mystery up to the point that some wondered if the ride has been cancelled. But no, it was not cancelled and Disney finally reveal a bit more infos as well as a new rendering on this boat ride which will be called “Na’vi River Journey”.
"The adventure begins as guests set out in canoes and venture down a mysterious, sacred river hidden within the bioluminescent rainforest. The full beauty of Pandora reveals itself as the canoes pass by exotic glowing plants and amazing creatures. The journey culminates in an encounter with a Na’vi shaman, who has a deep connection to the life force of Pandora and sends positive energy out into the forest through her music."
On this new and beautiful rendering above, we can see Na'vis walking in the forest along with Pandora "horses".
Na’vi River Journey will open along with the Flight of Passage attraction in Pandora – The World of AVATAR in 2017."

No one was expecting it, especially considering that J.J. Abrams had said that the previous Star Wars trailer was the last new footage we’d see, but Lucasfilm has released a new international cut of the Star Wars : The Force Awakens trailer, and one that is packed with new footage and dialogue! And Lupita Nyong’o’s Maz Kanata ends the trailer by saying “Hope is not lost today... it is found!”

I'm not a guy who really care about commercials, except when i see one really well done, which is the case of this Duracell commercial. Titled "Battle for Christmas Morning” it shows what’s possible "when two young Jedi power up their lightsabers with Duracell and enter the Star Wars world of imaginative play to take on Stormtroopers, Tie Fighters, and the rest of the Dark Side." If this commercial doesn't help Duracell to sell its batteries by thousands this Christmas i don't know what will!
Oh, by the way, i've also been told that the AT&T Walkers that you'll see for a few seconds at the end are the ones with the new design from Star Wars : The Force Awakens...
