More From Walt Disney World’s Pandora – The World of Avatar Imagineering Time Capsule

In honor of the 1st anniversary of the opening of Pandora – The World of Avatar within Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World, Disney Parks Blog and Disney Imagineering is releasing a series of videos that give us a behind the scenes look at how Pandora – The World of Avatar was created.  If you have ever wanted to get a sneak peek at how Disney creates their audio-animatronics, then you are definitely in luck today!  The video released by Imagineering today features a look at how one of the most advanced audio-animatronics at Disney, the Shaman of Songs,  was created.  The Shaman of Songs is located within the Na’vi River Journey attraction.  The Shaman of Songs sends positive energy through the entire bioluminescent forest through movement and music.  It wasn’t an easy task for Walt Disney Imagineering to bring her to life.  They actually had to develop 20 completely new technologies in order to get her movements and functionality right so that she would be as lifelike as possible.

Take a look at this amazing video on how she was created:

We can’t wait to see what Walt Disney Imagineering will share with us next!

Are you impressed with the effort that Disney put into creating the Shaman of Songs for Pandora – The World of Avatar?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
