The Walt Disney World Resort is allowing park fans to get a closer look at some of the merchandise created for Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Casey Jones, Senior Character Artist with Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media Creative Group, recently shared a sneak peek at some of the designs brought to life through collaboration. The results are truly stunning and will immerse Guests in a brand-new world unlike any they have ever experienced before.


In an interview, Casey said: “I was responsible for illustrations and toy designs while serving as gatekeeper for all the art used on merchandise. The most exciting aspect of my role was partnering with talented and creative individuals at Walt Disney Imagineering and Lightstorm Entertainment. Together, we designed products that complement a visually stunning world filled with floating mountains, bioluminescent plants, and all kinds of immersive adventure.”

Guests visiting Windtraders, a shop located on Pandora, will discover several art styles found on merchandise.

Dylan Cole, the Co-Production Designer for all of the upcoming “Avatar” motion picture sequels, captured the bioluminescent world of Pandora at night with two new pieces. One image was inspired by the Na’vi River Journey, while the other pictures the beautiful Valley of Mo’ara. In addition to being available as prints, some elements from his nighttime artwork were added to apparel, home d├ęcor, accessories and other products. More of Dylan’s work is found on the Countdown to Pandora pin collection we released this spring.

The cave painting art was based on sketches by Imagineer Joe Rohde for the new "Avatar Flight of Passage" attraction. Casey worked with Joe to finish out his sketches, which were then applied to select products.

Artist Daphne Yap, a member of the “Avatar” film production team, created gorgeous digital renderings of Na’vi weavings and Banshee totems for Walt Disney Imagineering.  These images have a hand-drawn feel and will appear on select apparel and accessories.

Finally, the art team created patch designs representing different experiences Guests will have while visiting Pandora. In addition to other products, Guests will find select patch designs in the Intergalactic Passport Kit from Alpha Centauri Expeditions. The kit includes a passport, three sticker pages, a button, and a photo ID badge. This item, along with the Na’vi Translator Device, are perfect for exploring Pandora.
