Trivia

On May 27th, 2017, the long anticipated Pandora: World of Avatar opened at Disney's Animal Kingdom to good reviews and large crowds. The main attraction, Flight of Passage, has been reported to be reaching lines averaging two hours.


Quotes

Jake Sully: When I was lying in the V.A. hospital with a big hole blown through the middle of my life, I started having these dreams of flying. I was free. But sooner or later, you always have to wake up.


Goofs

In the first battle sequence, Jake is seen shooting his weapon upwards, towards a helicopter. However, in the next sequence, the helicopter is shown being hit, but the bullets are coming down, opposite from the direction Jake shot them.


Crazy Credits

The initial end credits soar over the world of Pandora.


Alternate Versions

Released to commemorate the 2010 Earth Day, the 171-minute Special edition includes the following additional scenes:

  • The first flight across Pandora is longer, with the helicopter flying past the Stuurmbeast herd. Grace informs Norm and Jake about it.
  • The squad reaches the abandoned school. It reveals that Grace teaches English to the Na'vi children until a serious incident came about (bullet holes around, etc..) which was insinuated about.
  • Jake and Neytiri running through the neon-lit woods is slightly longer.
  • When Jake joins the circle, a little Na'vi girl smiles at him curiously, but her father holds her back. Neytiri then arrives and hands Jake a fruit.
  • Jake tries to ask Neytiri her name, but she seems annoyed by that.
  • Jake, Grace and Norm proceed from the helicopter to the secluded laboratory. There's an explanation about the mountains.
  • At night, Jake and Neytiri run through the luminescent forest.
  • After Jake touches the Fan Lizard, it flies away in a radiant glow. Its fellow species follow suit and, to the delight of Jake and Neytiri, raise themselves into the air.
  • As Jake and the other Na'vi climb the mountain, Neytiri flies past them on her banshee, Seze.
  • The Na'vi goes for an aerial hunt for Stuurmbeast. Jake shoots one and exclaims in excitement. Neytiri follow suit as well.
  • The Na'vi destroy the Hell Trucks of the mining company.
  • The next morning, Wainfleet's squad sifts through the remains of the Hell Trucks. Turns out that Na'vi kill the soldiers as well. Quaritch and Selfridge watch the live broadcast.
  • Tsu'tey's fall from the sky is longer. A few plants decelerate and break his fall.
  • The scene with the Hammerhead Titanotheres has been extended.
  • The fight between Neytiri on a Thanathor and Quaritch is slightly longer.
  • Tsu'Tey's death: he knows he is dying and appoints Jake to be his successor. He insists Jake to kill him because by Na'vi customs, Jake has to pass him to the Eywa by killing him by his own hands. Neytiri starts to cry. Jake reluctantly complies with his wish, stabbing him by the knife as the camera passes by him.
  • The end credits has an addition of using Discovery Zone's Bless the Plague soundtrack. The copyright year has been replaced with 2010.
