Believe it or not the image above is the first official image released by 20th Century Fox from James Cameron’s Avatar. All the imagery we have received so far has either been behind the scenes pics or concept art. The image above shows Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) next to a tank which contains his Avatar.
The Na’vi are an alien race on a planet called Pandora. Scientists have figured out a way to grow their own Na’vi (Avatars) by mixing Na’vi and Human DNA. The humans then transfer their mind and conciousness into these Avatar’s which allows them to live and breathe on the planet and communicate with the Na’vi. It’s all a bit complicated however in exactly 7 days we will have a trailer which will probably explain it all, and provide us with ‘groundbreaking’ visuals in the process.
