“The exhibition is going to be a unique opportunity for people to learn more not only about how the film was made, but also experience Pandora in a much deeper way. Fans will be able to see in-person the workmanship behind the film, whether it’s how scenes are captured; or how a Na’vi costume was built first as a real world garment then produced digitally,” said director James Cameron.
“It’ll create a tactical reality that’ll be a good companion to having seen the movie.”[ Also Read: Celebs Join Hands to Combat Hunger in the U.S. ]

AVATAR: The Exhibition will also include elaborate displays of artifacts and props such as the actual AMP (Armored Mobility Platform) suit used in the combat scenes, soldier uniforms, and the original, hand-made models of the Na’vi characters and their wardrobes.
