PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
A paraplegic marine dispatched to the moon Pandora on a unique mission becomes torn between following his orders and protecting the world he feels is his home.
In the Thai version, Jake Sully is a "Navi" who becomes a "Na'vi." The Thai word for Marine is "Na-vig-ga-yo-tin," but the translator shortened it to make the voice-over sync.
When I was lying in the V.A. hospital with a big hole blown through the middle of my life, I started having these dreams of flying. I was free. But sooner or later, you always have to wake up.
When Parker Selfridge wants to explain the situation (the 'Blue Monkeys') to Jake, he says that Hometree is on the richest Unobtanium deposit for 200 clicks in any direction. His wording suggests that other, richer deposits are farther away. It would be much easier to relocate the camp to a new deposit than it would be to move the Na'vi, but Jake makes a point to the Na'vi that more humans will come "Like a rain that never ends" So it would be expected that future camps will be set up on other deposits, and would only waste resources to relocate.
The initial end credits soar over the world of Pandora.
