Titanic - James Cameron Announces 'Avatar' Theme Park

'Titanic' director James Cameron has announced plans to develop an 'Avatar'-style theme park.

The amusement park - which will be based on the 2009 movie that tells the story of an alien race under attack from human beings, who are keen to exploit the natural resources on their planet Pandora - is estimated to cost $400 million and is set to be developed in the Animal Kingdom section of Disney World in Orlando over five years, with construction due to begin in 2013.

James - who wrote and directed 'Avatar' and is now thought to be working on two sequels - announced he wants Avatar Land, which will be built by Walt Disney Company, to give visitors an "unprecedented sense of reality" when they take in the amusement park.

He said in a statement: "Our goal is to go beyond current boundaries of technical innovation and experimental storytelling.

"[To] give parkgoers the chance to see, hear and touch the world of Avatar with an unprecedented sense of reality."

Avatar Land is thought to be the first of a planned series of theme parks based on the movie.
