New cast members from the upcoming Avatar sequels got a hands-on lesson on what it’s like to live in the movie’s mythical world of Pandora. The seven recently announced actors got the ultimate VIP tour of Pandora – The World of Avatar hosted by Avatar film producer Jon Landau.

This was a way for the cast to get to know the world of Pandora prior to the production of the Avatar sequels — though of course, this also doubles as both a commercial for Avatar and a commercial for Disney’s Animal Kingdom (synergy!). In the video above, you can see the kids having fun, and discussing how they plan on using the experience in their work.

L-R: Jack Champion (Javier “Spider” Socorro), Trinity Bliss (Tuktirey of the Sully Family), Bailey Bass (Tsireya of the Metkayina Clan), Jamie Flatters (Neteyam of the Sully Family), Britain Dalton (Lo’ak of the Sully Family), Filip Geljo (Aonung of the Metkayina Clan), and Duane Evans Jr (Rotxo of the Metkayina Clan).
