A new Avatar experience could be coming to Disneyland soon!

At the annual shareholders meeting on Wednesday, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced a possible plan for a new land at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif. The rendering showed a glimpse into an Avatar experience, where attendees could step into the world of Pandora.

In the meeting, Iger called it a “first look at creative inspiration for a possible new destination,” adding that the “Imagineers have been hard at work.”

“Avatar is the latest example of how we are looking to create new and innovative ways to bring our powerful stories to life,” Iger shared via a post on the Disneyland Parks blog that was also published Wednesday. “Over the past decade, we’ve delivered massive, immersive experiences at our destinations around the world, including new lands and attractions based on Star Wars, the Avengers, Pixar and more.”

The world of Pandora already exists at Walt Disney World in Florida.

And Avatar isn't the only IP that has spawned new lands at the parks. Last year, Hong Kong Disneyland opened the World of Frozen and Shanghai Disney Resort debuted a Zootopia land.

“We’re keeping that momentum going in 2024,” read a press release. “Tiana’s Bayou Adventure opens this year at Magic Kingdom and Disneyland, and we’re about to unveil Fantasy Springs at Tokyo DisneySea, the largest single-land expansion ever at a Disney park.”

Iger went on to reveal teams for Disneyland Paris are building a Frozen-themed land, and Disney cruises will expand destinations and ships.

“All of this is just the beginning – there are so many stories in our library yet to be explored,” Iger wrote. “As we turbocharge Disney Experiences over the next 10 years, we’re investing aggressively and thoughtfully to give you more of what you love.”

In January, the company announced a 10-year, $1.9 Billion expansion project called DisneylandForward, which Iger noted still requires city approval on which the Avatar land's development depends.

The funding, which includes expanding areas west of Disneyland Drive and the Toy Story Parking Area, could potentially require up to $2.5 billion to complete.

In terms of new additions that would be part of the project, Products Chairman Josh D’Amaro teased the possibility of introducing themes from Frozen, Coco, Black Panther, Tangled, Peter Pan, Zootopia, Toy Story and Tron at Disneyland within the next decade in September 2023.

The California park is also working on refurbishing a fan favorite: the Haunted Mansion. Renovation is already underway, with the attraction having temporarily shut down in January.
