A 4.2-ton, towering mechanical suit is sure to stop you in your tracks at Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park. The suit will debut April 22 as part of the 20th anniversary celebration of Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World® Resort.
The new Pandora Utility Suit is inspired by the iconic Amplified Mobility Platform (AMP) suits of power armor from the epic film AVATAR. Perched ten feet high, a human pilot straps into the cockpit of this exo-carrier and controls its powerful, yet agile movements. The giant walking suit was designed with articulated hands and a shoulder span of more than five feet.
As the suit traverses the land daily, its pilot will interact with Guests, share details about the land’s otherworldly landscape, and highlight the importance of preserving nature.
