After you see the Avatar rerelease in theaters you will see 1 of 3 Avatar 2 scenes. There is one scene that has the Sully family kids, and Metkayina kid swimming, another scene has Ronal and Tonowari speaking, and a third with Lo’ak and Payakan the tulkun. After my viewing of Avatar last night my theater had the Lo’ak and Payakan scene, so I wanted to go over the dialog and break it down for those who haven’t seen that particular Avatar 2 preview. I hope you enjoy the video, feel free to comment and let me know what type of content you would like to see covered, or any ideas, suggestion, or complaints, thanks!
There is another banshee (ikran) adoption option now at Windtraders, the merchandise store located at Pandora: The World of Avatar. You can choose to adopt a hatching, which currently includes one of two color options, an egg, a wristband for the banshee to perch on, and my favorite part, a teylu (Pandoran grub). Currently the color options are green/yellow, and red/yellow. I suspect more colors will be available in the future. The cost is $39.99
For a further look at the new hatchlings check out the article posted by WDWNT, it is full of photos and additional information- https://wdwnt.com/2022/01/photos-new-interactive-banshee-hatchling-toy-available-at-pandora-in-disneys-animal-kingdom/

As a huge fan of Avatar, Pandora, and of podcasts in general, I found one today that checked all three boxes. Hosted by Matthew Krul, the Imagineer Podcast has a two part series with a former Disney Imagineer and his wife, both worked on the creation of Disney’s Pandora-The World of Avatar. It is worth a listen, they share tons of behind the scenes details and further explore what it’s like to have worked on Pandora.
Adam, a former Set Decorator for Walt Disney Imagineering, and Rebecca, a former Scenic Artist working for a contractor, helped to literally set the stage for Pandora – The World of Avatar. From hand-weaving artwork at Satu’li Canteen to setting in place the tiniest details in the Flight of Passage queue, Adam and Rebecca helped bring the story of Pandora into the real world. In this two-part episode, we’ll discuss how to land a job at Walt Disney Imagineering, reveal what the day-to-day is like for most Imagineers and contractors working on a project, and of course share the stories that contributed to the many details around the land itself. I’d like to extend a huge thank you to both Adam and Rebecca for lending their time and stories to this two-part episode!

Please also check out and support this project from Ogel_. Avatar: Toruk-The Last Shadow. Here is what Oleg has to say about his project-
The great leonopteryx, known as Toruk in Na’vi’s language. His name can be translated as Last Shadow because the last thing you see when it attacks is his shadow above you. Toruk is the apex predator of Pandora, it is feared but respected by the different Na’vi tribes.I’m a huge fan of Avatar and it’s been a while that I wanted to build iconic creatures and vehicles from this movie. So, I started to create this project a few months ago and I have modified it a lot of times to be more realistic and more robust. I wanted to create an articulated model so it is more playable and it can take a lot of positions like a flying one, a walked one where the “feathers” fold or an intimidating one and lots more!Now if you want your own Toruk to lead and win every battle you do against the invaders, support my project.I hope that you like it.Ogel
I would love to see both of these projects reach 10,000 votes. Toruk would look amazing with the Pandora set. As more updates come in about either set I will share them with you all.

Big irayo to ValleyFlyin for sharing this with us all, give him a follow on Facebook and a like on his video,
