John Goudounis Carolyn Correa Kendra Lee Assignment #2 Avatar 1. The movie that we chose to watch was Avatar. Avatar, which was released in late 2009, was directed by James Cameron. This was Cameron’s first film since his release of Titanic in 1997. The main cast members of Avatar are Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, and Michelle Rodriguez. The film can be seen as a futuristic Pocahontas. In the mid-22 nd century, humans are seeking to mine a precious mineral called “unobtanium” on the moon of Pandora, which is located in another galaxy. The humans attempt to move the local people, the Na’vi, out of their village because they sit on top of a rich unobtanium deposit. In order to do this, they create hybrid human- Na’vi bodies called Avatars and use them to gain the natives’ trust and persuade them to move. A deep storyline develops to when Jake, a human, falls in love with Neytiri, a native. 2.
