Avatar is a 2009 Americanepic science fiction film
By 2154, humans have depleted Earth's natural resources,\r\nleading to a severe energy crisis. The Resources Development Administration\r\n(RDA for short) mines for a valuable mineral – unobtanium –\r\non Pandora, a densely forested habitable\r\nmoon orbiting the gas giant Polyphemus\r\nin the Alpha Centauri star system. Pandora,\r\nwhose atmosphere is poisonous to humans, is inhabited by the Na'vi, 10-foot tall (3.0 m), blue-skinned, sapient humanoids who\r\nlive in harmony with nature and worship a mother\r\ngoddess called Eywa.
To explore Pandora's biosphere,\r\nscientists use Na'vi-human hybrids called "avatars", operated by\r\ngenetically matched humans; Jake Sully, a paraplegic former Marine, replaces his deceased identical\r\ntwin brother as an operator of one. Dr. Grace Augustine, head of the Avatar\r\nProgram, considers Sully an inadequate replacement but accepts his assignment\r\nas a bodyguard. While protecting the avatars of Grace and fellow scientist Dr.\r\nNorm Spellman as they collect biological data, Jake's avatar is attacked by a thanator and flees into the forest, where\r\nhe is rescued by Neytiri, a female Na'vi. Witnessing an auspicious sign, she\r\ntakes him to her clan, whereupon Neytiri's mother Mo'at, the clan's spiritual\r\nleader, orders her daughter to initiate Jake into their society.
