Dive Into ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ With This Ikran-Inspired Loungefly Backpack

As Avatar: The Way of Water (2022) rolls into theaters, merchandise begins making its way onto the shelves of Animal Kingdom’s Pandora: The World of Avatar. From Na’vi ears and tails to a light-up headband sporting Woodsprites (or ‘Seeds of the sacred spirit tree’), the Disney Park has many items to offer.

However, one of the most coveted items for sale cannot be found in Animal Kingdom but online at shopDisney’s website.

From Walt Disney World’s official website, “Bonding with a banshee is a crucial step in the life of a Na’vi hunter on Pandora—and flying on the back of one of these powerful creatures is an important rite of passage.” With this unique Disney Loungefly exclusive, Avatar fans can experience this rite of passage even when they’re not visiting Animal Kingdom.

Unlike most Loungefly backpacks, this product doesn’t appear to be a mini backpack. Instead, this bag is as large and bold as Pandora’s mountain banshees. It features an intricate striped pattern mimicking the fearsome fauna of the floating mountains and three pairs of wings that can fan out for a fantastic display.
