Hollywoodnews.com: As James Cameron prepares to immerse himself in the alien world of Pandora for back-to-back “Avatar” sequels, fans of the director’s 2009 blockbuster can now head to an exclusive exhibit that explains the movie magic behind the original film … and tips its hat toward secrets that will power the sequels.
Housed at Seattle’s Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame, the “Avatar” exhibit will open to the public this Saturday following a Friday visit from Cameron, some of his “Avatar” cast, and Oscar winning visual effects supervisor Richie Baneham, the AP reports.
The exhibit, meant to be a theme park for “Avatar” fanatics, will house artwork and props from Cameron’s film, as well as virtual cameras that patrons can interact with to see how Cameron and his crew caught motion capture.
