Shaman of Songs Breaks Down on Na’vi River Journey–She’s Creepier When She’s Broken

The Shaman of Songs at Disney’s Animal Kingdom has broken down and it’s somehow creepier than when she’s working.

If you are unfamiliar with the Shaman, she’s the finale of the Na’vi River Journey In Pandora: The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

The animatronic is the most complicated Audio-Animatronics figure ever created by Walt Disney Imagineering and she’s huge!

Now she’s stopped working and @vinbel12 on Twitter has posted a video:

The video came from @bradenh_12.


Somehow she feels creepier than when she’s moving.

Here’s what she’s supposed to look like:


The comments are fantastic!



In the past they’ve put up a screen with an image of her on it while she’s down. I wonder if that’s what will happen here.

What do you think? Comment and let us know!
