When Jamie Flatters, Trinity Bliss, Jack Champion, and Bailey Bass first visited Pandora - The World of Avatar in 2017, they had just been cast in the Avatar sequels. 

Five years later, and just ahead of the December 16 2022, release of "Avatar: The Way of Water" in theaters, the cast has returned to Pandora at Disney's Animal Kingdom

"Being here on Pandora really helps make the world tangible in my mind," said Trinity. "I got to really feel that connection and harmony of Pandora, the magicalness of this world, and bring it into my performance for the film."

"Flight of Passage feels a lot like our training when we were on set," Bailey said. "The fact that audiences can experience becoming linked with a Na'vi like we experienced when we were doing training for months is extremely immersive. That's why we came years ago to Pandora: to see the world and to be more connected with the Na'vi."

Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, "Avatar: The Way of Water" begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe and the battles they fight to stay alive.
