New cast members from the upcoming Avatar sequels got a hands-on lesson on what it’s like to live in the movie’s mythical world of Pandora. The seven recently announced actors got the ultimate VIP tour of Pandora – The World of Avatar hosted by AVATAR film producer Jon Landau.

The diverse new cast ranges in age from 7 to 17 years old – most newcomers to the Hollywood scene. Landau was passionate about immersing the cast into the wondrous world of Pandora to prepare them for their significant roles in the sequels. The on-the-ground learning opportunity allowed them to take in the sights, sounds and scents of the stunning world.

In between a flurry of photo and video shoots, which we have captured for you, the next-generation cast had the chance to marvel at the awe-inspiring landscapes, float through a bioluminescent rainforest on Na’vi River Journey, and connect with an avatar and fly on the back of a banshee in Avatar Flight of Passage. They indulged in blueberry cream cheese mousse and other treats at Satu’li Canteen and shopped for cool souvenirs at Windtraders.

The kids were inspired by Pandora’s rich theming, over-the-top experiences and powerful conservation story.

The four AVATAR sequels will be filmed concurrently. Twentieth Century Fox will release the first sequel in theaters nationwide on Dec. 18, 2020.
