Avatar rides, based on the hit 2009 movie and set to open at Orlando's Walt Disney World in May, were teased in a preview on Sunday that has received more than 100,000 views on YouTube.

The teaser showing the Pandora – The World of Avatar attraction unveiled footage that appeared to be connected with the new area.

Disney's Animal Kingdom park will host the attraction, "… featuring magnificent floating mountains and an iconic nighttime jungle filled with bioluminescent flora, this sprawling new land includes innovative expeditions, along with themed dining and shopping opportunities," said the Disney World website.

"Set across a massive and immersive landscape, Pandora – The World of Avatar will surround you in the planet's beauty — especially at night when the land comes to life with a glow, adding a truly magical quality to every Pandoran adventure."

Entertainment Weekly said visitors will take boat-like vehicles through the world of Pandora. The area's major attraction, Avatar: Flight of Passage, will take riders through an area that resembles "living, breathing Banshees, the bird-like aerial creatures seen in the first 'Avatar' film."

Disney World visitors have been able to catch glimpses of the park testing the multicolored exterior of the attraction at night.

"I don't know if I can even express how it feels to see something that I imagined in 1995 suddenly made physically made real," said "Avatar" director James Cameron about the attraction, per Entertainment Weekly.

"They're using the absolute cutting-edge technology, stuff that’s never been applied before."

Fans expressed their excitement about the new ride on social media.
