    James Cameron recently gave an interview to Slash Film where he spoke about Avatar Land. He said they were looking into doing something olfactory in the park to simulate the experience of being in a rain forest, then added the following:

    "It’s going to be called, I believe, "Pandora: The Land of Avatar.†It’s going to have floating mountains. It’s pretty cool. I’ve seen the model and the design work the Imagineering people have done is spectacular. They’ve got a quarter inch to the foot scale model of the whole park and I’ve looked at all the sight lines…it’s not a park, it’s a land within the park but a land is not just a ride. There will be several rides and a number of other attractions. It’s really just a place you’re gonna wanna go and hang out. It’s gonna be gorgeous. Of course it’s gonna be gorgeous at night and they’re using every new trick, every new bit of technology that they’ve created.

    The animatronics for the Na’vi characters are gonna be fantastic. For example, their early animatronics would use 12 axis of motion and I think the most they’ve ever done was 32 axis recently. I think they’re up to 64 just in the face of the Na’vi characters. So it’s gonna be remarkable. They really see it as a major, major attraction."

    Pandora: The Land of Avatar" is scheduled to open at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom in 2017

    Ok. I love getting my geek on just as much as the next guy, but the Na'vi thingamabobs scare me a little. There. I said it. For those who have seen the movie - are the Na'vi the "good guys" or the "bad guys"?

    Just to ask an even dafter question (sorry, I know NOTHING about the movie), are the blue guys/girls "good" or "bad"?
