With Pandora set to open in summer 2017, what are the chances of a soft opening in early March?

Highly unlikely based on its current status. Late April/early May would be a better bet.

The park looks like it's coming along great. I absolutely love that park, and can't wait for there to be even more to do!

I've been optimistic about this project since it was announced solely based on the visual potential of turning that source material into a theme park environment but after seeing this video I have a feeling this area is going to be stunning. Like for how quiet this project has been so far I have a feeling it's going to blow people away, even if the major attraction is average (it's still a simulator so my expectations aren't that high).

The Navi river journey looks like a perfect addition to Animal Kingdom, I've always felt like that park needed some kind of mild family friendly boat ride and that thing looks awesome.

Looks like i'll have the same reaction to this as I do Potter: visually stunning and really cool, but I have no interest in the IP itself. I hope the storytelling avoids the Potter trap, where you have to know the IP to really get it...

^I hope they keep the focus on the world of Pandora itself, and not use any of the plot from the movie. Regardless it looks like it will be a visually stunning place to visit.
