PHOTOS, FIRST LOOK: Banshee Connect at Pandora- The World of Avatar

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

With less than 10 days until passholder previews begin, and only 23 days till the official grand opening, Pandora: The World of Avatar will be open before you know it!

Disney has given us a new inside look into this upcoming land, which today showcases the Banshee Connect experience. The Banshee Connect allows guests to ‘pick out’ their own banshee for purchase and take home with them. No, it is not a life-size version, or even close to that, but we have the next best thing.

When guests visit this so called ‘rookery’, a Naturalist from Alpha Centauri Expeditions will assist a guest with identifying a favorite banshee from among 10 unique styles. Each interactive banshee includes three ranges of motion – mouth, head, and wings – that are controlled by hand with remote control. Guests will also hear them make authentic banshee sounds provided by Disney’s partners at Lightstorm Entertainment. Guests will determine each banshee’s personality through a combination of hand movements and sounds.

Guests can either display a banshee on their shoulder or cradle them in their arms. A banshee perch will also be available for purchase separately.

You will be able to purchase these banshees in Pandora: The World of Avatar  in the Windtraders gift shop when it officially opens May 27th at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
