“The word Toruk, in the Na’vi language, refers to the great leonopteryx, the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky.”

“Central in Na’vi lore and culture, this fascinating creature is crucial to the Na’vi clans’ sense of destiny and interconnectedness – and is about to be ridden for the very first time by a Na’vi.”

Considering Disney is building their own Avatar land in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, will this help build excitement?Time will tell.
