It's going to be a long, hard wait until the first Avatar sequel hits theaters in 2017. It's already been six years!

But now, fans are going to get a taste of the movie sooner than we thought. No, unfortunately, the release date hasn't been moved up; instead, an exhibition based on the original flick is set to tour the world. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Twentieth Century Fox teamed up with a company called Global Experience Specialists (fancy!) to bring the world of Pandora to life.

The studio is keeping mum on the exact details of the exhibit, but we do know that it will be interactive, and that they've promised it will pull inspiration from the first installment's characters and landscape. It will also have a strong focus on games and other displays connecting Pandora to our own planet—think topics like bioluminescence, indigenous peoples and all sorts of plant life. (Science nerds, assemble!)

We can't promise that the exhibit will make you "s--t yourself with your mouth wide open," as Cameron promised of the three upcoming sequels, but it still sounds pretty darn cool. 

Tour organizers have not mentioned which cities will be lucky enough to spend time in fake-Pandora, so stay tuned for more announcements.
