Walt Disney World will sell a “Na’vi Translator” when it opens Pandora: The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in May.
Visitors using the translator can learn how to pronounce 90 Na’vi words using interchangeable translation cards. The devices will also light up at night.
The Avatar land will depict Pandora, the mythical moon where the fictional Na’vi people live in the 2009 movie “Avatar.”
The Na’vi Translator Device costs $19.99. It will come packaged with 15 translation cards. The device has a clasp that extends up to 12 inches and can be attached to a belt or backpack.
Additional translation cards will be sold in trading card packs, each containing eight randomly selected cards. Other cards will be sold in trading card packs for $6.99 each. Each pack will contain 8 randomly selected cards.
There are a total of 90 trading cards to collect.
Disney said when selecting words and phrases, creators thought about the most essential words necessary to explore another country here on this planet.
Disney merchandise product developer Cody Hampton partnered with Lightstorm Entertainment and Dr. Paul Frommer, creator of the Na’vi language for “Avatar,” to acquire audio recordings of spoken Na’vi words for the translator.
