In the futuristic world of Avatar, Jake, a wounded ex-marine, is thrust into an elaborate scheme to mine an exotic planet for its rare and valuable natural resources. Scientists have created Avatars - a body designed to look like the planet's alien inhabitants that have to be operated by a human consciousness. Walking in his Avatar body, Jake finds himself drawn to the planet's way of life. But as the threat of war grows ever closer, Jake finds himself torn between his human roots and the new friends that he wants to protect. This is a comprehensive look at the fictional world created for the film, including flora, fauna, planets, and more. Cameron spent years developing a new technology that allowed him to create much more realistic CG environments in incredible 3D. "Avatar" is shot in 3D with both live-action and virtual cameras, creating an innovative blend of CGI and live-action footage.
