The interactive exhibit “Avatar: Discover Pandora” will launch on Dec. 7 in Taipei, Taiwan — about two years before the first of four James Cameron sequels arrives in theaters.

The announcement was made Monday by global events provider GES, along with Lightstorm Entertainment and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products.

GES is partnering with Beast Kingdom to bring “Avatar: Discover Pandora” to the Shin Kong Mitsukoshi’s Xinyi Place for a three-month showcase. The exhibit offers a series of immersive environments that highlight Pandora’s diverse flora and fauna, exotic wildlife, and the culture and mythology of its indigenous people, the Na’vi.

GES, in collaboration with Lightstorm and Fox, will tour the exhibit to additional global markets after Taiwan.

Kathy Franklin, Lightstorm’s president of franchise development, said, “Our fans around the world often tell us that they wish they could travel to Pandora, and this touring exhibition gives us a unique opportunity to bring the wonders of Pandora to them. This exhibition has something for everyone, from fans of the film who want to experience Pandora in a brand-new way as they await our four theatrical film sequels, to families looking for an exciting activity, or to school groups wanting to explore science through an inspiring lens.”

“Avatar” (2009) is the highest-grossing movie of all time, having hauled in $2.8 billion worldwide.
