Avatar‘s story is set in the 22nd century, when the human race has colonized the planet Pandora, an alien world rich in natural resources. The Na’vi, an indigenous population of Pandora, are forced to defend their planet from human colonizers.
The protagonist is Jake Sully, a paralyzed former Marine who is chosen to pilot an avatar, a biological body controlled by a human. Jake is sent to Pandora to gather information on the Na’vi and facilitate their expulsion from the planet. But here the story becomes more interesting and takes a different turn. Jake falls in love with Neytiri, a Na’vi, and begins to side with her.
Avatar’s story is a classic tale of conflict between different cultures, but it is also an allegory of the relationship between man and nature. The film explores themes such as environmental conservation, respect for cultural diversity, and the struggle for freedom.
