Pandora - The World of Avatar

On May 27, Disney's Animal Kingdom opened the largest expansion in the park's history-- Pandora - The World of Avatar. This 12 acre expansion, inspired by James Cameron's 2009 film "AVATAR", was created in partnership with Cameron and his company, Lightstorm Entertainment. Pandora features two new attractions, Na'vi River Journey and Flight of Passage, a new quick service restaurant, Satu'li Canteen, and a new merchandise location, Windtraders.

Majority of my internship with Disney consisted of promotional work for Pandora. I worked with Good Morning America, Nightline, Headline News, The Verge and several other outlets to coordinate coverage of Pandora. During our grand opening Press Event May 23 - 25, I managed interviews with Jon Landau, producer of "AVATAR" and "Titanic," and a key Lightstorm collaborator on Pandora. I also tracked coverage, created media and spokesperson bios, helped prepare for smaller press events leading up to the larger, and more.
