Cirque du Soleil announced the name of its 37th show based on James Cameron’s “Avatar”: TORUK – The First Flight.
The live arena tour begins November 2015 and tickets go on sale to Cirque Club members on April 30th.
According to the Cirque website, “The First Flight, inspired by James Cameron’s AVATAR, a live experience by Cirque du Soleil®, envisions a world beyond imagination set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film.”
“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.
