Finally Some Avatar Info Coming Soon!

For the last two episodes of Radio Harambe, myself and Safari Mike have been saying how we assume nothing of any substance regarding the new Avatar project would be revealed during the upcoming D23 Expo.  And to our defense, that is pretty much exactly what Disney folks had been saying themselves.  Today, however it appears that has changed.

If you received your Disney Insider email today, I would suggest you read it.  I usually look at the pictures and send it right to the trash file, but this one got my attention.  And I'm glad it did.  The feature article is called "60 Years of Imagineering the Impossible, Take an Unprecedented Look Inside Walt Disney Imagineering at the Upcoming D23 Expo".  It includes an interview with Dave Fisher, show producer of the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Pavilion, and it contains this little nugget...

"...visitors will be able to virtually ride two attractions, the same way we do when we’re testing them. We’re also going to be doing sneak peeks at upcoming projects – including Disney Springs, the reimagining of Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World Resort. There will be teasers for new attractions based on Avatar and Star Wars that we’re working on now for the Disney Parks."

So throw away everything we said about how pointless D23 will be for those of us waiting for something, anything, regarding Avatar.  It looks like we are going to finally get something concrete next month.  Stay tuned...
