Oscars Viewers Got Freaked Out by an Avatar Theme Park Commercial

Now just two years after that video was shared, we have a commercial that marks the official opening of the theme park.  

Here’s a look at the commercial.

However it doesn’t end there. There’s an extremely unsettling image of a female Na’vi that scared the living daylights out of viewers. The Na’vi actress is making super weird expressions between sentences and it caused a chain reaction on Twitter. Turns out that the character was merely an animatronic from the Pandora theme park but that’s not what viewers thought. Here are a few reactions:
