Avatar is one of those movies which ushers in a new era in film-making. James Cameron, the director, is a visionary and like he has done it before in “The Terminator” – with Avatar he raised the bar for Special Effects in Movies to a whole new level.
Development on Avatar began in 1994, when Cameron wrote an 80-page script 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. When we see the movie, we see what he meant by his vision – The Spectacular Pandora and the beautiful Na’vi people.
The film broke several box office records during its release and became the highest-grossing film of all time in North America and worldwide, surpassing Titanic, which had held the records for the previous 12 years. It also became the first film to gross more than $2 billion. Following the film’s success, Cameron stated that there will be at least two sequels, which means we would get to see a lot more of Pandora. Pretty cool eh!?

Avatar Movie Fun Facts and Trivia:
- The CGI Dominance : The movie is 40 percent live action and 60 percent photo-realistic CGI. Most of the motion capture technology was used for the CGI scenes.
- The Gollum Effect : James Cameron was convinced that CGI effects had progressed enough to make this film when he saw Gollum in “The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.”
- Jake Sully’s Casting : According to Sam Worthington, who plays the main lead, he was invited to the casting via a phone call. He didn’t know anything about the script, nor was he told the director’s name. Sam was initially disappointed, thinking it was “another waste of time.”
- Zoe’s Practice Runs : Zoe Saldana trained non-stop for six months to prepare for her role as Neytiri in “Avatar,” including martial arts, archery and horseback riding. Zoe even dressed up as a warrior during some of the training, complete with a Na’vi tail, to see how it felt.
- Na’vi Linguistics : The Na’vi language was created entirely from scratch by linguist Paul R. Frommer. James Cameron hired him to construct a language that the actors could pronounce, but did not resemble any single human language. Frommer created about 1,000 words.
