CHICAGO (WLS) -- Cirque Du Soleil's Avatar-inspired show "Toruk - The First Flight" will come to Chicago's United Center from Aug. 3-7, 2016.

The show is focused on the Na'vi characters from James Cameron's "Avatar" film, following several of them on a quest to save the Tree of Souls. It is set thousands of years before the events in the film, before any human set foot on Pandora.

The show incorporates cutting-edge visuals, puppetry, stagecraft and acrobatics. To purchase tickets and for more information, visit
