Cirque du Soleil Images
Filmed /// 2015 | Montreal Run Time (82 min)

Cirque du Soleil presents the cinematographic adaptation of TORUK-The First Flight, a multimedia experience inspired by James Cameron's Avatar and imagined by Cirque du Soleil.

TORUK – The First Flight envisions a world beyond imagination set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film. The word Toruk, in the Na'vi language, refers to the great leonopteryx, the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. Central in Na'vi lore and culture, this fascinating creature is crucial to the Na'vi clans' sense of destiny and interconnectedness – and is about to be ridden for the very first time by a Na'vi.

Narrated by a "Na’vi Storyteller", the show follows three young adults - Ralu, Entu, and Tsyal - and the first flight of the Toruk.
