Description
In the futuristic world of Avatar, Jake, a wounded ex-marine, is thrust into an elaborate scheme to mine an exotic planet for its rare and valuable natural resources. Scientists have created Avatars - a body designed to look like the planet's alien inhabitants that have to be operated by a human consciousness. Walking in his Avatar body, Jake finds himself drawn to the planet's way of life. But as the threat of war grows ever closer, Jake finds himself torn between his human roots and the new friends that he wants to protect. This is a stunning, full-colour companion featuring a comprehensive look at the fictional world created for the film, including flora, fauna, planets, and more. Cameron has spent years developing a new techlogy that allows him to create much more realistic CG environments in incredible 3D. Avatar is shot in 3D with both live-action and virtual cameras, creating an invative blend of CGI and live-action footage! Visual effects are being created by Oscar-winning SFX house Weta Digital the company behind The Lord of the Rings Trilogy .
