New Utility Suit Coming to Pandora this Month

10 April 2018 No Comment

pandoraGuests visiting Pandora later this month will be greeted by a 4.2-ton, towering mechanical suit, inspired by the Amplified Mobility Platform (AMP) suits from Avatar.

A cast member will be perched 10 feet up in the suit, powering its movements as it walks around Pandora.

According to Disney, “The giant walking suit was designed with articulated hands and a shoulder span of more than five feet. It also bears claw marks and battle scars from a Thanator – an alpha predator on Pandora.”

And unlike the AMP suits in Avatar – which were made for battle, these suits were made for restoration on Pandora.

The suit debuts in Pandora on April 22, the 20th anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
