Posted on Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017 by Jacob Hall


In this edition of Theme Park Bits:

The uniforms of Pandora: The World of Avatar are revealed.The "roles" that Pandora cast members play in the park.A peek at the Avatar-themed merchandise you'll be able to buy at the park.Disney is researching how to projection map a human face.Disneyland is getting with the times and offering Wi-Fi in Best Insulated Water Bottles their parks.There's a new robot named iCan wandering around Tomorrowland.And more!

With Walt Disney World's Pandora: The World of Avatar on the verge of opening, more details about the theme park land are being revealed. And as you'd expect, the theming extends to the people who actually work in the land, with the 800 cast members taking on a different "role" in addition to their regular duties as shopkeepers, food staff, ride engineers, and so on. First, here's a look at some of the new cast member uniforms courtesy of journalist Paul Brinkmann:

Here's some costumes for Disney's Pandora - The World of #Avatar

Not present will be any military forces, who were vanquished in the first movie. Plus, the land is "set" a generation after the events of the final Avatar movie (which is still years away), long after conflict has ceased.

And here's a close-up of a cast member name tag, which is a cheeky update on the version seen elsewhere in Disney parks. While there's still the employee's name and their hometown, it is now specified that they hail from Earth. And there's no mention of Disney, either. According to this tag, they work for Alpha Centauri Expeditions (ACE). And yes, they will be prepared to truly inhabit this world in their interactions with you:

In addition to training for these new roles, cast members will be immersed in the Na'vi culture, by learning about their language, environment and way of life. One example is the way cast members will be able to welcome guests to this awe-inspiring land with the common Na'vi word for hello - Kaltxi (kahl-T'IH). In fact, each cast member on Pandora has received a handbook with some common Na'vi phrases, such as Oel ngati kameie [well NGAH-tee KAH-mey-yeh]. In the native language of Pandora, this means, "I see you."

If you're looking at those cast member outfits and wondering what you'll get to wear after a jaunt to Pandora, the Disney parks blog has got you covered. In the gallery above, you can check out some of the merch that will be available for purchase in the land's gift shops. While some of it looks pretty standard, I love how much of it looks like "in-universe" souvenirs, like patches from the fictional company arranging trips to this alien world and art created by citizens of the moon itself.

Disney theme parks already use projection mapping technology to transform buildings during their nighttime entertainment, but now, it looks like they're about to get even more ambitious with this tech. As you can see in the video above, they're currently testing out projection mapping using living, moving humans, transforming them into characters as they perform. While it looks rough now, it's easy to imagine a future where live performers can appear as all kinds of fantastical creatures and characters in live action shows.
