D23 Expo 2013: Imagineering Teases Pandora for Animal Kingdom!

Imagineering gave D23 Expo attendees a look at some of the research they did on the moon of Pandora. Take a look at some of the sketches of the locals called the Na'Vi.
Here you can see a maquette of one of the Na'Vi.
Here is some of the beautiful handmade ornamentation that the Na'Vi wear.
The Imagineers brought back an exopack, a lightweight atmosphere filtration system that allows humans to survive on Pandora.
This floating rock is actually a piece of unobtanium, a highly valuable mineral found on Pandora.
Pretty much all all life on Pandora exhibits bioluminescent qualities in various shades of blue, purple and green. The plant seen here seems to respond to sound. It is kept covered for safety reasons as no one knows if it may release spores or anything else that could be toxic to humans.
The Expedition Everest bags remind us that the Imagineers are going to build their version of Pandora at Disney's Animal Kingdom.
Here I am trying on a Na'Vi or an avatar sized backpack. Not only is it huge on me but man it was really heavy!
Holding a massive Na'Vi or avatar sized boot! This was also pretty darn heavy!

Hopefully we will be finding out more about Pandora in the near future!
