Heard it a few times, but is Avatar really not a big draw? The film made nearly 3bn in the box office which suggests there are plenty of people that like it out there. Do wonder though if the Pandora land has increased Animal Kingdoms popularity this year.

Regardless, a high quality land like Pandora with a couple of amazing attractions being in Disney Paris would be a huge draw and would help the Park regain the visitor numbers that have been dropping for the last couple of years. ( based on https://www.statista.com/statistics/639475/disneyland-paris-theme-park-visitor-numbers/ )

I would prefer something like the Beauty and the Beast area or something new just for Paris based on one of the many Disney stories that haven't been made anywhere else ( maybe a Robin Hood take on toy story mania, Wall E dark ride or a Big Hero 6 version of Soarin ).

Most of that however was the novelty of the 3D. Avatar was the first film to really use the new tech and the effects were impressive. Technically it was a great achievement. However the film itself is decent enough but nothing special imo and with 3D on the wane it remains to be seen whether people are at all interested in the franchise beyond the visuals.

I have never seen it in 3D but LOVE the film  , it is my husbands favourite , but that aside the theming of the place is immense and you truly feel that you are transported to somewhere else ..again Disney attention to detail is something else , But soaring on the back of a banshee that you can feel breath with the wind in your hair is just something special
