Avatar is a 2009 American epic science fiction film. The film is set in the mid-22nd century when humans are colonizing Pandora, a lush habitable moon of a gas giant in the Alpha Centauri star system, in order to mine the mineral unobtanium, a room-temperature superconductor.
The expansion of the mining colony threatens the continued existence of a local tribe of Na’vi – a humanoid species indigenous to Pandora. The film’s title refers to a genetically engineered Na’vi body operated from the brain of a remotely located human that is used to interact with the natives of Pandora.
Avatar premiered in London on December 10, 2009, and was released in the United States on December 18 to positive reviews, with critics highly praising its groundbreaking visual effects. During its theatrical run, the film broke several box office records and became the highest-grossing film at the time, as well as in the United States and Canada, surpassing Cameron’s Titanic, which had held those records for twelve years.

Avatar Poster Collection: 30+ Exciting Posters
With the exceptions of Jake, Norm, and a select few others, all humans are expelled from Pandora and sent back to Earth, after which Jake is permanently transferred into his avatar with the aid of the Tree of Souls.
1. Jake Sully
A Disabled former Marine who becomes part of the Avatar Program after his twin brother is killed. His military background helps the Na’vi warriors relate to him.
2. Colonel Miles Quaritch
Colonel Miles Quaritch is the head of the mining operation’s security detail. Fiercely loyal to his military code, he has a profound disregard for Pandora’s inhabitants that is evident in both his actions and his language.
3. Dr. Grace Augustine
An exobiologist and head of the Avatar Program. She is also Sully’s mentor and an advocate of peaceful relations with the Na’vi, having set up a school to teach them English.
4. Trudy Chacon
A combat pilot assigned to support the Avatar Program who is sympathetic to the Na’vi.
5. Parker Selfridge
The corporate administrator for the RDA mining operation. While he is at first willing to destroy the Na’vi civilization to preserve the company’s bottom line, he is reluctant to authorize the attacks on the Na’vi and taint his image, doing so only after Quaritch persuades him that it is necessary and that the attacks will be humane. When the attacks are broadcast to the base, Selfridge displays discomfort at the violence.
6. Dr. Max Patel
A scientist who works in the Avatar Program and comes to support Jake’s rebellion against the RDA.
The daughter of the leader of the Omaticaya (the Na’vi clans central to the story). She is attracted to Jake because of his bravery, though frustrated with him for what she sees as his naiveté and stupidity.
She serves as Jake’s love interest. The character, like all the Na’vi, was created using performance capture, and its visual aspect is entirely computer-generated. Saldana has also signed on for potential sequels.
The Omaticaya’s spiritual leader, Neytiri’s mother, and consort to clan leader Eytukan.
The Omaticaya’s clan leader, Neytiri’s father, and Mo’at’s mate.
The finest warrior of the Omaticaya. He is heir to the chieftainship of the tribe. At the beginning of the film’s story, he is betrothed to Neytiri.

Jake destroys a makeshift bomber before it can reach the Tree of Souls; Quaritch, wearing an AMP Suit, escapes from his own damaged aircraft and breaks open the avatar link unit containing Jake’s human body, exposing it to Pandora’s poisonous atmosphere.

Final Thoughts: Avatar Poster Collection
The development of Avatar began in 1994 when Cameron wrote an 80-page treatment for the film. Filming was supposed to take place after the completion of Cameron’s 1997 film Titanic, for a planned release in 1999, but, according to Cameron, the necessary technology was not yet available to achieve his vision of the film.
Work on the language of the film’s extraterrestrial beings began in 2005, and Cameron began developing the screenplay and fictional universe in early 2006. Avatar was officially budgeted at $237 million. Other estimates put the cost between $280 million and $310 million for production and at $150 million for promotion.
Following the film’s success, Cameron signed with 20th Century Fox to produce four sequels: Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 have completed principal filming, and are scheduled to be released on December 17, 2021, and December 22, 2023, respectively; subsequent sequels are scheduled to be released on December 19, 2025, and December 17, 2027. Several cast members are expected to return, including Worthington, Saldana, Lang, and Weaver.
