In collaboration with City Neon Holdings, the creators of Avatar found home in one of the most famous attractions in Southeast Asia, Gardens by the Bay Singapore. The exhibit is divided into five different zones with various interactives based on the film. Its initial illustration releases hints at the life-sized creatures, detailed installations and lush environments home to the Na’vis. The experience include stimulating interactions with nature, and appearances of life-sized animatronic banshee and Ilu, the new marine creature from Avatar: The Way of Water, the upcoming sequel in December 2022.
