Speaking Na'vi: Apparently, Disney is beginning the process of staffing Avatarland. And according to WDWNT, Disney is also asking potential "leaders" of the land to learn of to speak Na'vi. These staff members must be willing to learn to speak Na'vi and teach the culture of Pandora. The call indicates that this land will be the most immersive in any Disney park, and by having cast members speaking the language and being experts in the fictional culture will take that up a notch for sure. Plus, the fact that casting is starting is a good sign that maybe 2017 is not all that unrealistic.
